Welcome to Brys Estate Vineyard & Winery. Spanning 91 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 our 58,000 vines planted less than a mile from Lake Michigan. The Brys experience includes an old-world tasting room, unique Upper Deck with Bridge Above the Vines, and a barn-turned-guest house that offers panoramic views of the bay and Old Mission Peninsula.

Enjoyed a beautiful afternoon with wine and a meat and cheese tray on the upper deck taking in the view. Try their Signature Rosé. Better than your average Rosé.

This is one of our favorite wineries. Stay for a bite to eat, the charcuterie board was fabulous, and of course, enjoy a glass of wine out on the back patio. The view is amazing, you can pretend you're in France!
