You start right off with the gondola ride up to the winery...smashing views. Self walking tour/tasting was nice and the kids each received a lunch-type paper box, that looks like a gondola, full of activities and surprises!

Sterling Vineyards has one of the best views in the Valley. The wine was good, though not nearly our favorite of the trip. It was a self guided tour through the property. A nice option if you're looking for scenery. The tram was a fun twist on a wine tour!

It was pouring down rain so the ride on the gondola was not good for picture taking. When we arrived to the top, the staff wasn't overly friendly. We had reservations for a party of six and they wanted to separate us into two tables. They said they were not allowed to push the tables together. Keep in mind we... More

We did not visit the winery due to the high cost of $40-50.00 per person. You can buy a whole bottle of their very nice wine in the local store for under $15.00.

The chairlifts are a kids magnet, you will have to pay to go up and down, included in your tasting. The kids get a chairlift shaped goodie bag. You can keep the vineyard's wine glass you get at the first station. The views are amazing from the top, you can see several wineries and the Napa valley on a clear... More

The good: The ride up to the top is fun, and scenic. Having the individual tastings spread out throughout the walking tour is a novel idea. The bad: Not really all that much to see inside of the building itself, the variety of wines and number of tastings is very limited. Not a real 'warm' feel to any of it.... More

It was a rainy day, and views from the gondola going up to the tasting rooms were dramatic, over the lush green oaks and evergreens. The 'tour' itself was disappointing. The staff we encountered seemed disinterested, and the wines were also unimpressive. My favorite things inside were the stunning Ansel Adams photos of the winery, circa 1950-1960.

With small children (18m and 4yo), I am very glad this was our first winery visit. We were traveling wine country for my Wife’s birthday. Despite much research, I was unsure what to expect. This place was perfect to start our 3 day trip. Though kids (over 3) cost money to visit this winery, my son got a goodie bag,... More
