Uncorked: Sterling Vineyards

It's all about the gondola!

Appellation:  Calistoga
Tastings:  $29 admission for aerial tram ride, self-guided tour and 5 wines.
Tours:  Self-guided
The Wines:  Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay, Malvasia Bianca, Muscat Canelli, Petite Sirah, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Sangiovese, Viognier, Zinfandel

After a fun filled day at Mayo Family Winery in Sonoma, we headed out to Calistoga for a visit to the beautiful Sterling Vineyards.  
For $29, you can taste 5 wines and take a self-guided tour and experience breathtaking views.  For $10 more, you can taste three additional wines in the VIP area.  
My favorite was the rose, but they have lots of different varietals to try.  They also offer cheese plates for a fee.  The highlights are definitely the gondola ride and scenery!
