Nestled into the countryside of the beautiful Old Mission Peninsula—just 20 minutes north of Traverse City—is Brys Estate, a see-it-to-believe-it stop for Northern Michigan wine. Home to acres of undulating estate-grown grapes, a sophisticated, yet warmly welcoming tasting room and cinematic vistas overlooking Grand Traverse Bay, Brys Estate exemplifies the Northern Michigan wine experience before a single bottle is uncorked. Try their wines—from an aromatic pinot noir to a gentle pinot gris—at the decadent mahogany bar, and feast your eyes on the above video tour of Brys Estate.
