Welcome to Brys Estate Vineyard & Winery

Spanning 111 acres, Brys Estate is one of the largest contiguous winery estates on Old Mission Peninsula. Opened in 2005, we're a family-run business that crafts wines from out 58,000 vines planted less than a mile from Lake Michigan. The Brys experience includes an old-world tasting room, unique Upper Deck with panoramic views of our expansive vineyards and East Grand Traverse Bay, a barn-turned-guest house, and serene Secret Garden with gift shop.

Reserved Table: Upper Deck & Patio
Our newly expanded "Upper Deck" sits elevated above the vineyard rows and allows guests to take in spectacular views of the vineyard and East Grand Traverse Bay.   Guests on the Upper Deck may enjoy a Tasting Tower, a glass of wine or Frosé, or a cheese & charcuterie board.  Click here for our complete Upper Deck & Patio menu.
