Perched 300 feet above the historic town of Calistoga, Sterling Vineyards offers brilliant wines and stunning panoramic views of Napa Valley. Sterling has been long been held as one of Napa Valley’s landmark “must-see” wineries. Upon arrival, climb aboard the only one of its kind, an aerial gondola to soar up to the top of the hill. Greeted with a glass of wine, begin your journey from grape to glass as you walk through the terraces tasting the current release wines. While taking in the stunning views of the South View Terrace, savor a glass of delicious Sterling wines, perfectly paired with one of our delightful cheese and charcuterie platters for two.
Winner of the 2014 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence!
The winery was designed with the visitor in mind, incorporating galleries and overlooks that allow guests to view the whole winemaking process. The stunning Greek architecture was inspired by the Mediterranean island of Mykonos, a favorite vacation destination for our founder, Peter Newton. Sterling Vineyards offers one of the widest selections of wines in Napa Valley, bottling over 20 different varietals each year. Wine tastings and food pairing options are available throughout the tour. To fully experience these rare and unique wines, we suggest the Silver Experience, which lets you indulge in a seated tasting of our exclusive winery-only selections after your tour. Your personal wine educator will guide you through your tasting as you enjoy small production wines found only through the winery. The Silver Experience also grants you exclusive access to our rare collection of artwork by Picasso, Renoir, Ansel Adams, and more!
