Overview
More
Perched 300 feet above the town of Calistoga, Sterling Vineyards offers panoramic views of Napa Valley. A unique aerial tram carries visitors up to the hilltop winery, whose iconic architecture was modeled after that of the Greek island of Mykonos, where Sterling founder Peter Newton once lived. The brilliant white stucco stands out dramatically against the rugged Mayacamas and Vaca mountain ranges that flank each side of Napa Valley. Through walkways and balconies, guests take a self-guided tour of Sterling Vineyards’ winemaking facilities. Make your visit to Napa Valley a memorable one with a seated Silver or Platinum Experience featuring exceptional small production reserve wines and food pairings. The extraordinary Mediterranean-style architecture, unique aerial tramway, stunning views, and exceptional tasting experiences make Sterling Vineyards a top destination in Napa Valley.

The tram to the tasting always fun, the tasting is in multiple places as you walk through the wine making stations. The Verrado overlooking the valley is a great place to conclude the tasting and get a place of cheese. Great memories of visiting with...More

After visiting a few wineries in the area, we were drawn to the gondola ride for something different. The ride up itself made it worthwhile! Loved the tasting option we chose which allowed us to wander (following signs) to see the operation while stopping at...More

This winery is big and very commercialised. The $35 admission fee included the cable car ride to the wine yard and a self-guided touring with tasting of 4 wines. The view itself was amazing and it was fun to ride the cable car. The wines...More

This tasting had been pre-booked for us so I didn’t know what to expect. First you take an air-tram to the top of the hill, then you do a self guided tour. The wine was excellent, the grounds were beautiful and the view was breathtaking!...More

The tour of Sterling Vineyards is an experience different from most wine tastings. You arrive at the entrance and purchase a tour. The general admission tour is $35.00 and the tours go up from there to $75.00 per person. Once you pay for your tour...More
