There were at least 10, 5'x5' sturdy plastic bins filled 6" deep with juicy purple petite syrah grapes -- we had to sample a few BEFORE we got in to stomp!... More

My husband and I are thoroughly enjoying our Byington Vineyard and Winery membership. Their staff is friendly and the wine is superb! Although I prefer a great cab, their estate grown Pinot Noir is the best! To date, we have been wine tasting with family and friends, picnicked on the beautiful grounds, experienced barrel tasting in the wine cave, and... More

I visited Bridgton Vineyard last Sunday with a friend and her dog. A colleague had made a reservation for us. It was easy to park the car and directly enter the wine tasting room. Here we tasted 5 different red wines starting from a light to very heavy ones. The waitress explained the wine after we requested for details. I... More

The setting of the Byington Vineyard in the Santa Cruz Mountains is breath-takingly beautiful and just a 25 minute drive away from San Jose. Highlight of my visit to Byington was definitely the informative and competent tour of the wine cellar and the barrel-tasting with Martin, a profound expert and sommelier, who made this experience a memorable and enjoyable one....

Absoluetly loved Byington! The grounds are beautiful and the views are breathtaking. The tour and tasting was informative and reasonably priced at $25. Loved the caves, could have drank wine down there all day. Highly recommend!

Intimate, attractively laid out and well suited for smaller groups to enjoy. You are more than likely to be greeted by the General Manager, as we were, and the facilities are arranged such that the view is fantastic in nearly every direction and there always seems to be someone nearby to explain the vintage of any of the wines you...

As locals, one of "favorite weekend things to do" is visit Byington Winery. It's a short 20-minute drive from our home. We simply love the tranquility of the Santa Cruz mountains visible from our home and the drive through the redwoods to get there. You feel like you are on Top of the World. We usually take a picnic with... More

When I think about wine and CA I always think of Napa Valley -- I had no idea there were vineyards in Los Gatos! We learned about it through an event and it was such a fun find - the only drawback is the winding road up the mountain if you get a little carsick. But once you're there, the... More
