About Brys Estate Vineyard & Winery

Spanning 111 acres, Brys Estate is one of the largest contiguous winery estates on Old Mission Peninsula. The family-run business crafts wines from vines planted less than a mile from Lake Michigan. Its old-world tasting room, unique Upper Deck, and Guesthouse allow guests to distinctively experience the beauty of Old Mission Peninsula.

*At Secret Garden Only


Currently offering table service on the outdoor Upper Deck for groups of 6 or less. Reservations are strongly encouraged and can be made online HERE. Menu items include wine by the glass, Tasting Towers (wine flights), and cheese & charcuterie boards. Guests arriving without a reservation can inquire with the host about walk-in availability. In the case of inclement weather (temps under 50 or rain) reservations will be accommodated at tables inside the winery (walk-in availability will be very limited).

Multiple table bookings for single parties traveling together are not permitted. Groups of 7-12, CLICK HERE for options.

Lawn Bar open through November 15th for walk-in glasses of wine, Spiked Hot Apple Cider, and Wine Country Snack boxes. No reservations required. Area is subject to capacity controls. Maximum group size 12. CLICK HERE to learn more.

Note: traditional wine tasting at our indoor bar is not being offered at this time.


Groups of 6 or less are encouraged to make a reservation for a table on the Upper Deck or Patio. Multiple table bookings for single parties will not be accommodated. Tables will not be combined nor will additional chairs be added. CLICK HERE to make a reservation. 

Group Size: 7-12
Currently we are not accepting table reservations for parties larger than 6. Multiple reservations for a single party are not permitted. Groups of 7-12 are welcome to visit the Lawn Bar on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, or Sundays for first-come-first-serve Lawn Bar seating. No reservations needed. Menu includes glasses of wine, Frosé, or Wine Country Snack Boxes. This area is subject to capacity control. No pets or outside food or beverage, please. Masks are required when in the service area but may be removed once seated.

Group Size: 12+
At this time groups of 12 or more will not be accommodated at a table or at the Lawn Bar. 

Our current limitations on group sizes are a result of the following:
– It’s difficult to enforce social distancing for larger groups
– Tables cannot be moved because each table is carefully spaced 6′ apart as required
– Limited space is available due to capacity restrictions
– Concerns raised by other guests in smaller parties that felt uncomfortable
– Multiple poor experiences with larger groups not following our social distancing requirements
– The safety and well being of our staff
