The Byington winery is located in an extremely enchanting place nestled in the Los Gatos mountains. the Byington winery produces some of the best wines of California.
Byington Vineyard & Winery was established by Bill Byington and his wife, Mary, with a vintage 1987 release. He purchased 95 mountainous acres surrounded by redwood forests with a view to the Monterey Bay as a family retreat in 1958. In the early 1970s, a well-known Santa Cruz Mountains winemaker approached the family, wanting to lease a portion of their land for vineyards. A keen wine collector, Bill was intrigued, and the seed for future vineyard cultivation was planted.
In 2013, Los Altos Vineyards purchased Byington, recognizing it as the gem of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Los Altos Vineyards invests significantly in its vineyards, wine production, facilities and grounds, and staff to provide an optimal wine experience for its wine club members and guests. In addition to updating grounds and facilities in the two years since purchase, Los Altos Vineyards created new facilities, including the Cave Patio, Block 4 Outlook, and hiking trail.
In 2014, strengthening its commitment to producing sustainable, high quality wines, Los Altos Vineyards purchased a 240-acre ranch in Alexander Valley. Part of a newly created Wine Appellation, Pine Mountain-Cloverdale Peak, there are 36 planted acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay, Merlot, and Petite Verdot.
The winery produces some of the high class wines of California such as:
The 2010 Chardonnay, 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Bates Ranch, The 2007 Alliage a classic Bordeaux style of blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir and the Liage Paso Robles which a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier. Extremely high quality wines which have to be savoured with the pairing of the right meat and cheese.
We had the opportunity to down a bottle of Pinot Noir and boy was it wonderful.
