Earthquake in Napa changed our plan for wine tasting, and we ended up in Santa Cruz Mt. Savannah Ch was nice, but we were looking for higher quality wine. We stop at David Bruce and had the worst experience. Bellow average wine and the staff had no knowledge. It's was like getting wine from a vending machine. We were very... More

I attended a wine tasting/birthday party for 23 people at Byington Winery over the weekend. Several of us decided to schedule a wine tour before the other guest arrived. Elaine was our tour guide and I was impressed with the level of information she shared with us on our tour. We sampled 5 wines while touring the vineyard, pressing &... More

We had an opportunity to visit Byington Winery for a wine tasting event. The views are breathtaking and the wine was delicious. I love cabernet - their cabernet franc was exceptional and priced well. The chardonnay was wonderful, too. I would highly recommend this as a great getaway for couples or a group of friends. The drive is lovely from... More

Byington winery is a hidden gem in Silicon Valley. Sitting on top of Santa Cruz mountains, and only 30 mins drive from Silicon Valley, it provides a top-notch facility with a beautiful view of Santa Cruz mountains. The staffs are knowledge and friendly, and the wines are excellent. We just hosted a company event of wine tasting and BBQ at... More

Not having heard of this winery prior to being invited as part of a company meeting, this turned out to be a very nice surprise. Beautiful setting, knowledgeable tour guide, more appetizers and food than a normal person can eat and wine along every step made this a very enjoyable evening. A special tasting straight from the barrel of what... More

The drive is windy, but only about 20 minutes from Hwy 17. Pack a basket of your favorite goodies and buy a bottle of their delicious, approachable wine to enjoy on the grounds tucked into the beautiful Santa Cruz mountains. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and the wines are a very good value. Ask them about taking you to the... More

I visited Byington winery two times in 2012 for company events. Luckily both times the weather was pretty good even in December. I am not a wine expert but thought it was pretty good. My colleagues thought so as well and purchased several bottles. The view is really outstanding. Not sure if they do weddings but It would be beautiful.... More

The location is incredible - and worth the drive. We've never thought much of their wines in the past. Maybe that was our problem, or maybe the winemaker is changing things up. But, this time, wines were much better and the tasting room staff was fun, informative, and very passionate about their wines. Now you combine good wines with a... More
