          Year Purchased: 2000

          About the owner: Step back in time and enjoy a Pure Michigan experience when you visit Brys Estate Vineyard &Winery, an 91-acre estate on Old Mission Peninsula - reborn. Brys Estate produces small batch, estate bottled wines and the 38-acre vineyard produces Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Noir, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. These estate wines have been awarded over 300 medals in International, national and state competitions. Visitors will delight in winding past the renovated 1890's farm house, a barn transformed into a guest house, lush gardens and rolling vineyards as they make their way to the state of the art winery. Sample award-winning wines in the elegant tasting room, enjoy a glass of wine on the outdoor patio overlooking the vineyard, set up a private tour and tasting in the international barrel room or book a stay in the private guest house. At Brys Estate, you're encouraged to taste the estate difference!

          Why the Owner Chose Traverse City:
          After combing the country for property to start a vineyard and winery, the owners returned to their home state of Michigan to check out the availability of vineyard land in the Traverse City area. It was love at first sight when they saw the 91-acre dilapidated former cherry orchard and buildings. The 1890's farm house was completely renovated, the land was cleared and cover cropped to prepare it for planting grapes. During the 4 year process of planting grapes and clearing the old buildings, the owners also moved an old barn into the valley on the property as well as renovate an old tractor barn into a storybook guest cottage. In 2004 construction on the winery and tasting room began and the tasting room was open to the public in May of 2005.

          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
          The transformation of the guest cottage is magical. The views of the vineyards and East Grand Traverse Bay are breathtaking and the coziness of the house is unmistakable. Guests can stroll the 91 acres, the vines, the woods and enjoy nature at its best.
