I recently took a group of 10 people on a wine tour and Byington was, by far, the favorite of everyone. Yes, there are lots of wineries to choose from in the Santa Cruz Mountains, but if you want a... More

Byington hosted a group of 40 of us -- the location is great, closer to silicon valley, the views beautiful and the tour engaging, intersting but not too long. I enjoyed the wine too -- ended up buying a few bottles.

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.

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
