Tours & Tastings
Tours are $15.00 per person and offered Saturdays and Sundays at 11 am, 12 pm, 1 pm, 2 pm, and 3 pm. Your tour guide will escort you into our estate vineyard where, with a glass in hand, you will learn the history of Byington Winery and the Santa Cruz Mountains. You will also tour our production facility and our wine cave. During the tour, your guide will present you with a selection of our current releases. Tour time is approximately 45 minutes.
Picinic Facilities & Bocce Ball
Our Picnic facilities, lavish with flowers and beautifully manicured lawns, are available on a first come first serve basis. However, on parties of 10 or more, reservations are strongly recommended. Our facility provides picnic tables, cloth-covered round tables with chairs and umbrellas. The table reservation "fee" is 1/2 bottle of wine per person for you and your guests to enjoy on the winery property or to take home. We also offer use of gas and charcoal grills for a fee of $25 and $75, respectively. (You will need to bring your own BBQ tools.) Our bocce ball court is available to those who prefer a more active afternoon and for the leisurely types, we offer breathtaking views of the Monterey Bay and plenty of seating.
Catered Food and Sandwiches
Byington works with local caterers to provide 5 menus. During Tasting Room hours (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 11 AM to 5 PM), pricing is $25 per person for a minimum of 20 people. We also offer delicious sandwiches on Saturday and Sunday. Sandwiches are limited in quantity, so if you would like to be assured sandwiches, please call in advance. At least 1 week notice for orders is kindly requested.
