Byington Vineyard is a 95 acres (0.38 km2) vineyard and winery in the Santa Cruz Mountains AVA above Silicon Valley in California as well as 234 acres (0.95 km2) of vineyard near Paso Robles, California.
In 1958, Bill and Mary Byington, purchased 95 acres (0.38 km2) surrounded by redwood forests as a family retreat. In the early 1970s, a well-known Santa Cruz Mountains winemaker approached the family, wanting to lease a portion of their land for vineyards. Almost 20 years after leaving his family farm in Idaho, Bill planted nine acres (36,000 m²) of Pinot noir on the southernmost tip of the rugged Santa Cruz Mountains terrain. Byington Vineyard & Winery was established with its vintage 1987 release.
Byington purchases grapes from the west side of Paso Robles. Paso Robles is home to a thriving variety of grapes resulting from its varied soil composition and diverse microclimates. The Byingtons will be dedicating the land primarily to Bordeaux varieties, while experimenting with Rhone varieties.
