Perched 300 feet above the town of Calistoga, Sterling Vineyards offers panoramic views of Napa Valley.
An aerial tram carries visitors up the hill to the winery. The Greek island of Mykonos, where Sterling founder Peter Newton once lived; inspires the wineries architecture.
The white stucco stands out dramatically against the rugged Mayacamas and Vaca mountain ranges. Mount Saint Helena makes a lovely distant backdrop.
The winery’s towers house eight bells from London’s Church of St. Dunstan’s-in-the-East. Originally founded in the 10th century. The church was destroyed by fire in 1666. It was rebuilt, then destroyed again during the bombing of WWII. Each time, new bells were recast from the old metal to give them superior tonal quality. The rich tolling of these ancient bells sounds down through the valley on the quarter hour.
The Sterling Vineyards winemaking team believes that our wines should express true varietal character. We craft each wine with this in mind. Choosing gentle techniques tailored to bring out the aromas and flavors that each Napa grape variety develops. The resulting wines have exceptional quality with intriguing complexity. Because of these qualities the wines bring out the best in a wide variety of cuisines.
