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.

This vineyard was on a list provided to us by friends. Wow. The whole experience was great. Even if only one person is wine tasting you have to pay the full price for both due to the experience of the cable car to the top....More

We loved the tram up the mountain. The general admission is not worth your $$ but we did the Silver experience add the cheese platter for two and it was nice. Kenny G is a funny guy. He poured our wines. We loved their Malvasia...More

This was my 5th trip to the winery. This time I choose the silver experience which was $48 per person. Including a tram ride and a wine glass, seated wine tasting was a good deal. We can see amazing view at the terrace at the...More

This winery was by far our favorite today! Maurice Dixon in the Silver experience made the extra cost more than worth it, and was so amazing. He was really passionate about what he did and engaged in some really hard questions we threw at him!...More

Maurice you were the best! Thank you for being such a kind host. Sterling is a beautiful winery, the wine is not my favourite but the tasting fee is worth it just to see the facility. Spring for the silver tasting and grab a cheese...More

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!
