Leading Online Marketplace

We had a company event at the Byington Winery in January 2020 and had a wonderful time. Michelle from Byington was on-hand to make sure that the event went smoothly. The event consisted of a tour of the winery with wine tasting, a catered lunch and some time on the winery grounds. Vince from Byington Winery who has a background as a sommelier lead us on a tour of the winery and their wine cave. He provided context and color to the wines we were tasting. For the lunch we chose the Mediterranean Lunch because this menu accommodated vegan, vegetarian, carnivore, and gluten-free dietary requirements. My co-workers, vegetarian, vegan, and carnivore alike, commented that the lunch was very good. After lunch, many of my co-workers took advantage of the good weather and went on a moderately challenging hike on the winery grounds. They returned pleasantly exhausted and remarked that it was the best after lunch activity. Even our co-workers who do not drink alcohol enjoyed this event. I would recommend this off-site to other companies. One tip, if your budget allows, hire a bus to take your team to and from the event.

Leading Analytics Software Company

We (about 15 folks) visited Byington for a corporate picnic. Absolutely stunning vistas of the Santa Cruz mountains. Nice and friendly staff (Yay! Vince) Really good wines. We purchased a few bottles and two of us are even their wine club members.

Leading Silicon Valley Company

I just got feedback and it was all wonderful! Everyone loved the food, venue etc. Really great job! [Feedback provided by Executive Assistant who booked the event, but was not present for the event.]

Leading Global Hardware and Software Company

It was indeed great to finally meet in person, and what a location, and wines you have - wow! Our class was extremely happy with the event and also by the service provided by the ladies, especially Michelle, who was extremely helpful and especially considerate near the end. I want to majorly, majorly thank you on behalf of the class for the gift you so kindly provided for everyone - the class couldn't believe it and we are beyond grateful. Let's stay in touch and I definitely will be back.
