Bryter ("brighter") is a family winery producing sparkling wine, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir. The name is the marriage of the founder's first name with her husband's first name.

Owners Bryan and Terin Ignozzi are from Chicago where they built successful careers before moving west in 2008. Terin's family was Italian, had been winemakers in Italy, and Terin became a home winemaker during childhood.

The first vintage was 2009. A tasting room is located on Sonoma Plaza and is open daily.
