We visited Sterling with our children and they really enjoyed the gondola that takes you to the top of the hill. There you enjoy wine tasting while you see several processes in wine making. A great visit for all family.

We very much enjoyed Sterling!! I have read the other reviews, and I agree to a certain extent - this wasn't my favorite wine, nor was the staff especially attentive (especially the window where you purchase your tickets - these guys looked like they were miserable). But it's a self-guided tour, so you can't expect as much thoroughness as at... More

We had several referrals to visit this winery. Its located in a nice building with a very small balcony / terrace and beautiful view in where mostly there is no chance to get a table. There is 4~5 wines testing with no option for any refiil. “Cheese tray” which barely enough for two persons cost more than an entrance. The... More

Although it was a really hot day, we loved our visit to Sterling Vineyards. The gondola ride gave a great view and it's not too high. The wines were nice and the servers were very nice. At the top, there's a wine bar with a great view. The only downside is that this tour was self-guided. I missed the personal... More

We were disappointed by our visit to Sterling, though we have enjoyed their wines. The tram ride and views were nice. The self-tour left much to be desired and most of the pouring/ tasting staff seemed disinterested.

The coolest winery in California. Cable car ride was great! The staff was fabulous and the silver room was a lot of fun.

You take a cable car to the top of the hill then start the tour of the large facility. The best thing about this winery is the views. The wine is OK but not great and the price is high. If you want to get the same view for free take the trail just outside Calistoga and as for wine,... More

Whether you like wine tasting or not the tram up to the winery and the self tour is well worth the price. It is less if you go before 11:00. They have multiple spots where you can taste and the view over the valley is beautiful. Even your kids would enjoy the educational signage explaining the wine making process.

Top notch winery! The cable care takes you up to the winery. The views are incredible and the wine exceptional. We always stop at Sterling. The people are always friendly and happy to see us.

Great tour, including gondola ride up the hill. Employees were especially cordial for both the tour and the wine tasting. Wonderful scenic views.
