Sterling Vineyards

EDITOR’S PICK

A one-of-a-kind aerial tram glides you on a 360 degree scenic ride up a tree covered hill to Sterling Vineyards. Debarking at the summit, visitors can then begin to explore the chalk-white stuccoed, many-verandaed winery. Its architectural inspiration? The Greek villages on the island of Mykonos where Sterling founder, Peter Newton, once lived. High in the winery’s towers are 8 bells that once hung in London’s Church of St. Dunstan’s-in-the-East. When the Anglican church, founded in the Saxon 10th century, was badly damaged by the Great Fire of 1666, it was repaired and a Christopher Wren steeple added. St. Dunstan’s was much later mortally damaged during the London Blitz in 1941. The bells found their way to Calistoga in the 1970s and today visitors and wine connoisseurs alike can enjoy the timelessness of their reverberations.
