Estate Tour & Tasting
Hop on our 7 passenger "Wine Wagon", and explore the best of Brys Estate's 91 acres - from grape to glass!
During this 90-minute immersive tour and tasting, guests will explore 5 unique locations throughout our 91-acre estate via open sided electric shuttle. Guests will tour the farmhouse gardens, experience beautiful scenic vistas, drive deep into the vineyard to learn about our growing practices, and enjoy a picnic snack at the Secret Garden! Wine tastings will be served at each stop along the way.
Experience these 5 unique stops…
1: Brys Estate Family Farmhouse
Tour the farmhouse gardens overlooking the vineyard, or grab a rocker on the front porch and take in the view. Learn about the Brys Family and the story that led Walter and Eileen from Houston, Texas to Old Mission Peninsula and their extensive remodel of the original 1800's farmhouse. Taste our 2017 Naked Chardonnay Reserve.
2: Scenic Vineyard and Winery overlook
Departing the Farmhouse, the "Wine Wagon" will lead you to a scenic overlook that boasts a beautiful view of our vineyards and winery. Learn about the once abandoned cherry farm that was transformed into a thriving 45-acre vineyard. Discuss our growing practices and the microclimate that enables us to grow 8 different varietals of European vinifera. Taste our 2016 Dry Riesling Reserve.
3: Secret Garden
Twelve acres of the Brys Estate property was deemed not suitable for growing grapes, so inspired by a trip to France, Eileen and her two daughters created the Secret Garden in 2016. The Secret Garden is now home to 6,000 lavender plants, seasonal strawberry and blueberry plants, a sunflower field, a gift shop, and more. Enjoy a light picnic, while tasting our 2016 Signature Rosé Reserve. Stroll the gardens and gift shop at your leisure.
4: Cabernet Franc Vineyard
Hop back on the "Wine Wagon" and drive deep into our vineyard to surround yourself with Cabernet Franc vines while tasting our 2016 Cabernet Franc Reserve produced by grapes grown on these same vines. Learn about the annual growth cycle of our grapevines and our vertical trellising system.
5: Winery Production Areas
Return to the winery and tour our production facility and learn about our small batch wine making practices. Taste our *not yet released* 2016 Pinot Noir Reserve. Finish the tour and tasting with a walk on our Bridge Above the Vines on our Upper Deck overlooking the vineyard!
