Byington Vineyard and Winery

South Bay



Begin your married life in a world of your own. Byington Winery offers a stunning 100-acre, winery experience getaway conveniently located halfway between San Jose and Santa Cruz. What began as nine acres of pinot noir on the southernmost tip of the rugged Santa Cruz Mountains, Byington Vineyard & Winery was established with its vintage 1987 release. Guests are greeted by the grand estate with beautiful foliage, as well as expansive views of the Santa Cruz Mountains, Monterey Bay and the Pinot Noir Vineyard. Vows are exchanged beneath a white gazebo, surrounded by the lush vineyard and the beauty of the expansive Santa Cruz Mountain's redwood forests. Nature provides a stunning canvas of flowers, evergreens, and oak trees. Later, your friends, family and loved ones will enjoy a memorable reception in the VIP room. Accented with hardwood floors, French doors, picture windows, high-beamed ceilings, and a stone fireplace, this majestic room creates a romantic ambiance. The VIP Room opens onto a large wisteria lined veranda overlooking the vineyards and Monterey Bay. Happily Ever after begins at Byington Winery.
