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.

Hmm, what to say...in a nutshell the tram ride is fun but the wines are not worth the ride. The views are lovely..tour is self guided..wines nothing special.

U take a ski gondola up the mountain and they serve wines along the self guided tour. Great to see the wine making process, but the views from the top are spectacular.

We only had time for a couple wineries and this one was a great choice. The gondola brought us up to the building for the wine tasting and it was a beautiful day to sit outside and enjoy the view as well as the wine!

This vineyard draws a lot of visitors because it is a familiar brand, and because it has what no other wineries do, a gondola ride from the valley up to the premises. The crowd management functions, however, are somewhat scattered. There are several choices of...More

The visit to Sterling Vineyards is worth the journey because the panoramic views of Napa Valley from the aerial tram to the bright white hillside visitors' center is outstanding. Tours, tastings and a tram ride are a package price with additional charges for premium tastings....More
