As one of the landmark wineries of Napa Valley, Sterling Vineyards enjoys a rich heritage, including groundbreaking wines, diverse vineyards, a historical winery with stunning architecture, and much more.
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 in the terroir it likes best. The resulting wines have exceptional quality that shines anywhere, with intriguing complexity that brings out the best in a wide variety of cuisines.
Sterling Vineyards is founded in 1964 by British International paper broker, Oxford University graduate, and former London Financial Times writer Peter Newton. Impressed with the quality of Californian wines and inspired by the beauty of the Napa Valley, Newton decided to broaden the business interests of his company, Sterling International, with the purchase of a 50-acre parcel of established vineyard bordering Calistoga.
