Sterling Vineyards, Calistoga

3.8
Sterling Vineyards is one of the most famous Napa vineyards, due to its great Bordeaux and the enclosed tram that travels above the grape fields. Take a walking tour with tasting stations along the way, or pay extra to get into the wine barrel and stomp some grapes. In the fall, the winery hosts grape stomping events and a pumpkin carving competition. Most of the events are for guests over 21.

  • The wine tasting experience here is very unique as you travel up to the winery via a gondola. You are then guided through the winery and stop along the way at designated areas to try each wine. The wines were below average compared to many of the other wineries we visited and the tasting fee was higher, so the value from a wine quality perspective is lower. The experience of the winery is pretty neat though and you are rewarded with some great views once you reach the top.
  • Perfect spot for a visit to Napa! Reasonably priced winery tour, with plenty of samples and a beautiful overlook. The air tram was a fun addition, and very fun to wander around and sip on the self-guided tour. Friendly staff and amazing wine!
