“Thank you so much for your hospitality in opening your beautiful tasting room for our alumni event last night! Michelle and Charlie were fantastic hosts, and our attendees could not stop raving about how amazing the wine and food were and how much they loved the venue. I will absolutely keep you in mind as I begin to plan our alumni events for 2020. Hopefully, I can stop by for a tasting with some friends sometime very soon. Look forward to working together in the future!” – Leading Global Business Software Company

“I just wanted you to know about the positive reaction we have heard from the foundation. From the people who  worked with you to the paying attendees, the comments were very nice for us to hear. It’s somewhat rare for so many women to agree on a venue. So glad you could provide us with such a nice place to meet.” – Community Benefactor

“Thank you!  Your staff were great at sharing their knowledge about wine and Byington as well.  They kept everything running smoothly and made our guests feel very welcomed. We enjoy doing business with you.” – Financial Consultant Partner

“The event was a great success due in large part to your wonderful staff who were such a pleasure to work with. The program was classy yet casual, and was exactly the vibe we were hoping for in the lead up to our event. Thank you so much for all your help! I want to especially recognize the Tasting Room staff, who were really so wonderful to work with.” – Nonprofit Organization based in New York

You all did a fantastic job and we truly appreciate it!  Everyone was commenting on the wonderful venue and support from the 3 of you there. Thank you for being so flexible and taking care of our needs during the party. We really enjoyed ourselves.” – Los Altos Family, 50th Birthday Celebration

“We held a private event for 49 people at The Tasting Room last night. Everything was just perfect, from the setup to the layout to the food to the fantastic wines! The people who work there are great. Very helpful, thoughtful, and paid great attention to detail, to our needs and how we wanted things set up.  I have received great feedback from guests. Now we just have to arrange a field trip to visit the winery and tasting room in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Can’t wait! And we will definitely be stopping by for some wine tasting at the Los Altos location in the near future.” – Administration Manager, Research Institute

“I had a terrific birthday party at your Los Altos Tasting Room! The party was fabulous and I had so many positive comments about the wine, the food, and the opportunity for my friends to have a very fun evening! Your staff was very helpful. Many of my guests remarked to me about how wonderful the staff was… is.  The staff was very friendly and helpful to all of us! Everyone enjoyed the wine very much! Many guests remarked to me about the Pinot Noir wine and how great it is! In fact, I returned to LATR on Monday and bought a bottle of the Pinot to serve to some guests that I was having that evening at my home.” – Los Altos Community Member, Milestone Birthday Celebration

“My colleagues loved the space and our alumni really enjoyed themselves that evening. The event went very well and your staff was helpful!” – Alumni Affairs Planner for an East Coast University

“My office hosted a networking night and panel of speakers at the tasting room in February and it was lovely! Our team was welcomed by the staff on hand and they were excited to have us there. The signage for the patrons explained that the tasting room would be closed for the private event and patrons understood when they had to leave. We were able to bring in our own caterer. Our guests were able to get a flight of wines and a glass of wine, but the staff was really flexible when someone only wanted a glass of wine. We were able to use the TV’s on the wall to highlight the speakers and brand it for our event. The space was a perfect size for what we needed.” – Business School Alumni Networking Evening

Tasting Room

“Los Altos Tasting Room is such a find! Wonderful, reasonably priced selections from the local Byington Winery. Quite the collection of Whites, Reds and Sparkling Wines to taste and purchase. Oh, I should also mention they have a lovely choice of small plates that complement the wines quite well. Such a comfortable environment with companions or as a solo guest. Give it a try – you won’t be disappointed.” – Laura G.

“Great wine at a great location in downtown Los Altos. Clean, simple, and chill atmosphere to sample some wines and get the perfect appetizers. Highly recommend!!” – Sean T.

“This was a surprising find in the area, offering a tasting of five different wines in a more modern, social setting. The variety of wines gives you an overview of what the winery produces, and the host was friendly and chatted about the history of the winery and the area. This would be a great place to gather with a group of friends, have some light snacks while trying great wines, and enjoy your evening.” – Chris D.

“First of all, if you haven’t made a trip here yet, you are missing out. Byington offers some of the nicest wines around and all at a great price point. They are known for their Pinot Noir, however I have to say I prefer their Cabernet blends, Zinfandel, and Sauvignon Blanc (also try the Liage, which is their Sauv Blanc with 20% Viognier). Yum! The staff is super friendly and knowledgeable.” – Will & Michelle

“Everyone was thrilled with the tasting room, and we will be back as a group. The individuals who attended will also be back as they meet friends before and after dinner and for a chat. All but three of us live in Los Altos. I will be back as soon as I can fit it in to get a bottle of wine or two. Loved what I tasted – it was great. The small plates were great – just enough for us.” – Community Philanthropic Organizer

“Wonderful staff, beautiful ambiance, solid business model coupled with the best wine I’ve tasted. I’ve been a member since its opening and am very happy to be one. Calm atmosphere, great staff and the member benefits make this  a great place to stop in and unwind for a few moments.” – John A.

“I found this tasting room to be a soothing and calming environment. A comfortable place to be solo or for conversation with friends. The wines are good with a wide variety. Loved the Sangiovese, the Pinot Noir and even the $3, 3pm Chardonnay is satisfying. A definite destination in downtown Los Altos, or after a delicious meal at one of the  local  restaurants.” – A.G.
