About Sterling Vineyards
Sterling Vineyards was founded in 1964 by Oxford graduate and successful businessman Peter Newton. As one of only 27 bonded wineries in Napa Valley at the time, Newton was an early pioneer of crafting Bordeaux-inspired red wines in California and helped transform the region into the premier winemaking appellation we know today. Sterling Vineyards quickly put Napa on the map for creating top quality wines and in 1969 bottled the first vintage-dated Merlot in California. The winery itself is an architectural icon in Napa Valley. Modeled after the beautiful white stucco buildings on the Greek island of Mykonos, Sterling Vineyards was the first winery ever built with the visitor in mind and the only winery in the world with an aerial tram. Sterling is one of the most visited wineries in Napa Valley and one of the largest landowners in Napa, which provides immense opportunity for crafting world-class wines. After sustaining damage from the Glass Fire in 2020 and being forced to close its doors, Sterling Vineyards is excited to welcome guests back in Summer 2023. Sterling Vineyards is currently rebuilding its iconic aerial tram, regaining its historic splendor, and bouncing back to once again be one of the most visited sites in the Napa Valley.
