I can’t help but return to Sterling winery every time I visit Napa Valley. What’s not to like about taking a unique gondola ride up the mountain? You can sign up for a tour or follow the easy self guided stroll with sporadic tastings through...More

Loved the attentive service. All staff presented a nice attitude. Helpful and informative. Loved the little souvenir provided to all kids: small bag with grape juice and sunglasses.

We enjoyed the tasting. You stroll from area to area with your wine glass. The view of the valley from this winery is amazing. It is worth doing. You also see the equipment and areas where wine is made.

Loved this place so much when I visited two years ago. Decided to bring my son to Napa this year to show him the coolest places and unfortunately the tram was shut down. Even though the tram was shut down, they still charged us full...More
