San Francisco

The romance begins as soon as you arrive at Sterling Vineyards. A serene aerial tram ride travels over lush trees and a waterfall to the Mediterranean-inspired winery, which sits atop a 300-foot knoll and is reminiscent of a Greek monastery. After being greeted with a glass of wine, lovebirds can take a self-guided tour of the winemaking process, stroll through the art galleries and toast each other on the outdoor terrace while taking in breathtaking panoramic views of Napa Valley.
