Northern Michigan Wineries: Celebrate the 2012 harvest season at Brys Estate Vineyard and Winery's annual Harvest Celebration, running every Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., September 29th – November 3rd, 2012.  They're expecting 6,000 – 8,000 people to participate this year, here's why you should be one of them!

For only $5 per person, guests will be given a large souvenir wine glass to use as they visit four different wine and food pairing stations throughout the tasting room, barrel rooms and winery cellar at Brys Estate, giving visitors a glimpse into the inner workings of this beautiful Northern Michigan winery.

The patio will also be open, where guests can sip on their favorite wine by the glass, while soaking up the blue views of Lake Michigan's East Grand Traverse Bay and the fall colors that will be exploding in every direction. Guests may even sneak a peak at the grapes being harvested in the estate vineyards that surround the tasting room. Admission is complimentary for current wine club members. No reservations are needed.

Here are the delicious fall-flavored pairings that you can look forward to:

  • Herbed Cheese and Cucumber on Toast with Pinot Grigio
  • Cream of Mushroom Soup with Pinot Noir
  • Curried Cashews with Gewurztraminer
  • White Cheddar, Honey & Walnuts with Riesling.  

All of the wines will be 100% estate grown and bottled on Old Mission Peninsula!
