A Unique Wine Tasting Experience


Sterling Vineyards

Calistoga, California

Perched 300 feet above the town of Calistoga, California, Sterling Vineyards offers its visitors panoramic views of Napa Valley. The winery’s architecture was modeled after that of the Greek island of Mykonos, where Sterling’s 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 and Mount Saint Helena makes a lovely distant backdrop.

The aerial tram that carries visitors up the hill to the winery is the only one of its kind in Napa Valley. Visitors are greeted with a glass of wine to enjoy while they stroll through art galleries, overlooks, and elevated walkways that allow guests to follow the winemaking process from grape to glass. Along the way, motion-activated flat-screen televisions provide detailed explanations. This arrangement lets guests tour the winery at their own pace.
