Why the Owner Chose Traverse City, MI, USA:
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. In 2014, an Upper Deck and Bridge Above the Vines was added to the east side of the winery enabling guests to enjoy wine by the glass and cheese and charcuterie as they drink in the view of the East Grand Traverse Bay and the rolling vineyards. The Bridge Above the Vines extends out over 6 rows of vines so visitors can actually walk over the vines. NEW in June of 2016, the Secret Garden at Brys Estate - a 12-acre garden consisting of 5,000 lavender plants, strawberry and blueberry patch, herbal and perennial gardens. 1,000 square foot garden shop. Visitors will find both fresh and dried lavender bunches, hand-made lavender items for adults, kids and pets, lavender scented bath and body products, and a picnic area and play space for the kids.
