About This Winery
The Anderson Valley is a pastoral wooded basin surrounded by mountains, hillside vineyards and a couple dozen wineries. It would be hard to imagine a more perfect hillside location than that of Esterlina Vineyards and Winery.
Off the highway near Philo and up a path past redwood trees, creeks and ranches is the entrance to Esterlina and its unique winery setting. There are two older individual dwellings that serve as tasting room and winery. Each two-story building has a lovely balcony that sits out over their vineyard and has stunning unobstructed views of the Anderson Valley. With wonderful hospitality, visitors are treated to a sit-down wine-tasting experience. If the weather doesn’t cooperate, simple indoor facilities are also available.
“Quietly making wines that are too good to ignore” is their tag line at this
family-owned and operated estate winery. The Sterling family has extensive vineyards in Alexander Valley, the Russian River Valley, in the highlands at Cole Ranch, and their own 15-acre vineyard at the winery. They produce Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and a port. Call for an appointment.
