Santa Cruz is a state of mind.
And if you try hard enough, you just might figure it out.
It’s the original cool climate California landscape for wine, and wineries like Ridge and Mount Eden to name a few have been lucky enough to put down roots and call it home.
But there are plenty of small, homegrown wineries situated amidst the misty mountains of this famed region that deserve your attention, and we’ve got one right here waiting for you to lap it up.
Byington Vineyards sits on 95 acres of magical land nestled in the Santa Cruz mountains. Surrounded by redwood forests with views of Monterey bay, it’s no surprise that the fruit grown on this estate is downright spectacular, and it’s also no surprise that no one knows about it.
That is, until right now.
Sustainable and biodynamic farming drive the magic bus here, and the result is fruit full of life and nerve that is nothing short of spectacular. The 2017 is a splendid offering, ripe with notes of vivid cherry, strawberry, raspberry, forest floor, truffles, and a touch of spiced vanilla, all melded into perfect liquid harmony. Fermented whole-cluster, there is an extra kick of energy and verve combined with sensational structure, layers of depth and sophisticated personality.
Sure, this winery may not have the name recognition as some of the aforementioned at the top of this email, make no mistake, this is quintessential Santa Cruz Pinot Noir in its purest form.
But we’re here to help you find the under-the-radar gems that you’re gonna want in your cellar, and it’s no surprise we’ve located another crimson jewel in the misty mountains of the California redwoods.
So pack your bag for the misty mountains where the Pinot spirits go.
