Two words: Cave Tasting. Both barrel tasting and library reserve tasting are available in the beautiful, candlelit caves where many of the winery's barrels are stored. Bring a picnic to enjoy the spectacular views. Wear your hiking shoes and take a walk around the perimeter of the vineyard, or jump on the "bus" for a tour. This beautiful place is... More

If you haven't been to Byington in awhile, you should try it again soon. Under new ownership/management, the winery is elevated to a higher status. The venue is more beautiful than ever, with elegant touches such as live music Sunday afternoons, cave tours with private tastings/pairings, and weekend tours on their "limo" shuttle to an outlook point. Our group tasting... More

Tasting was 12 dollars. A little steep compared with the free tasting up the road at David Bruce. 1 oz pouts were nice. Friendly staff and music @2 on Sunday.

We went to Byington Vineyard and Winery as our last winery to visit for the day. It had been a busy day as it was a special event week-end (Passport Weekend). Their tasting is $12.00 per person minimum. They have a variety of experiences from tasting to tours to cheese offerings and more. We opted to do a shared tasting.... More

I am a long time Byington wine club member, and the wine has been consistently good. A large part of this is the winemaker and the dedication of management. The staff are friendly, get along well with each other, and are courteous to visitors. Then there are the spectacular grounds and vistas of Byington, where the view is south westward... More

Our Exotic Car Club, Club Sportiva, recently held a Members drive event to Byington Winery and from start to finish had a great experience. Not only was it a great drive for our Members to get to the venue but once there the setting and the staff were excellent. I highly recommend a visit to Byington Winery to anyone!
