When & Where wine was first tasted: At the winery during our August 2011 Napa Valley Trip. Sterling is a very modern/contemporary place on the top of the hills in Calistoga. You take a beautiful tram trip up the mountain to get to the winery. Our group did a self-guided tour during our visit.

Sterling Vineyards is a very large production winery..just one of the many, many HUGE barrel rooms we saw

G’s Final Comments: “Pretty good, not sure if the cake was the perfect pairing for the wine..but I enjoyed it anyway.”
T’s Final Comments: “I liked it more than I remember liking it when we tasted it at the winery.”
Overall Rating: 4
