Sterling Vineyards, Calistoga

3.7
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.

  • Beautiful vineyard! The aerial tram tour sets this place apart with great views. Photo ops along the entire tour. Kyle, one of the bartenders at the end of the tour on the terrace, was extremely kind and welcoming. He was very attentive and helpful!
  • About the only good thing with this tour is the sky tram. Out of the box it was high pressure sales to join the wine club. Staff knew nothing about what they were pouring except a scripted story. Most of the pourings were of wines I can purchase anywhere. If your serious about Oenology don't waist your time here.
  • Very pleasant experience. Wine was alright, the experience was definitely worth it. Kid friendly, we had brought a little one on with us. We used a ski lift to get to the actual building. Such nice smooth ride and beautiful scenery. There is a walk through the entire building and a terrace up top. You could order a cheese board and grab a seat to enjoy the scenery.
  • You visit for the views, not the wine. If you go on this basis you'll have a good time. If you do the silver experience though you will taste some good wines. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable.
  • Nice tram ride. But the tour was like an assembly line. Then, here’s the wine we sell at the grocery. No winery only wines that we were able to taste. Disappointing.
