Weddings at Byington
Create the beginning of your marriage in a world of your own. Byington offers a stunning 100-acre, wine-experience getaway situated on our grand estate with manicured lawns, expansive views of the Santa Cruz Mountains, Monterey Bay, and our Pinot Noir Vineyard. Our attentive staff, grand facilities, wonderful wines, and superior catering partners combine to make your wedding a unique wine, winery, and vineyard experience.
We want to develop a relationship with you before, during, and after your Wedding and take an integrated wine-experience approach. The team you work with is expert not only in Weddings but also wines, vineyard management, and wine making. Following a tour of the faciities, we invite you to sample our wines. If you choose to marry at Byington, in addition to providing regular updates, we offer two private, complimentary events: 1) meet our Wine Maker for a barrel tasting and overview of the recent harvest, and 2) enjoy a Wine Tour & Tasting for up to 20 guests.

We offer a variety of wedding facilities to match your plans. We can accommodate up to 100 total guests indoors (seated within one room) and 175 guests outdoors.
Wedding vows are exchanged on Wedding Hill beneath a white gazebo, surrounded by our Pinot Noir vineyard and the beauty of the expansive redwood forests of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Nature provides a stunning canvas of flowers, evergreens, and oak trees. A lavender and rose-lined brick stairway leads the wedding party to the ceremony site.
The VIP Room & Adjoining Veranda
Following the wedding, guests are hosted in the VIP Suite, where hors d’oeuvres are served and Byington wines are poured from a mahogany bar. Accented with hardwood floors, French doors, large windows, a high-beamed ceiling, and a stone fireplace, this majestic room creates the ambiance. The VIP room opens onto a large wisteria lined veranda overlooking one of our Pinot Noir vineyards and the Monterey Bay. This room can also be transformed into the perfect venue for an intimate wedding.
The Bridal Suite
The VIP Room includes a separate room, our Bridal Suite. The wedding celebration begins as the bride and her attendants prepare in the private Bridal Suite complete with comfortable chairs, elegant furniture, a full bath, large mirrors and French doors leading to a balcony overlooking our estate Pinot Noir vineyard.
The Barrel Room & Private Tasting Room
Guests and the wedding party celebrate over dinner and dancing in the Barrel Room with vineyard views and an adjoining balcony. The Barrel Room provides the unparalleled experience of enjoying your meal paired with Byington wine amid the very barrels where our wines are crafted. A hardwood dance floor completes your ideal reception. The adjoining Private Tasting Room with high ceilings, picture windows looking into the winery, and hardwood floors provides an exquisite backdrop for the cake cutting ceremony.
For smaller wedding parties of 40 or less, the Cave, the inner sanctum of Byington, is a truly extraordinary location. The man-made wine cave, completed in 2002, sits 40 feet beneath our Estate Pinot Noir vineyard. The natural insulation of the earth provides an ideal environment for the creation of world-class wines.
