Welcome to Brys Estate Vineyard & Winery

Spanning 155 acres, Brys Estate is the largest contiguous winery estate on Old Mission Peninsula. Opened in 2005, we're a family-run business that crafts wines from 53,000 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 (open seasonally).
