Brys Estate's B.E. Happy & Healthy

Bottoms Up
By Lynda Wheatley | March 28, 2020

Some people hoard toilet paper. We stockpile essentials. And Brys Estate on Old Mission Peninsula is giving us all the incentives we need: 10 percent off orders of 12 or more bottles, shipped for only one penny. The single-penny shipping deal is also available on six-bottle orders, which offer a 5 percent discount. And if you order six bottles online (coupon code FILLATOTE) and pick up your order at the winery … you’ll save 20 percent.

Of course, if you’re curbing your intake of wine while homebound (though we have to ask: Why now?), you can still take advantage of an outstanding pandemic deal: The B.E. Healthy & Happy set, which includes a heavenly-smelling hand sanitizer from the Secret Garden at Brys Estate, a bottle of the winery’s Cabernet/Merlot Reserve, and a bottle of its Pinot Noir/Riesling for $49 — shipping included. That’s a savings of more than 25 percent. Use coupon code HH20 at for B.E. Healthy and Happy set; or see Shop Wines at
