The Sterling Family - The Industry Model of Growing A Family Business
Off a beaten path in a city called Philo is a well known family treasure. Esterlina, Spanish for Sterling and an apt name for a winery, is the heart of the Sterling family's vineyards and winemaking business. Originally based in Anderson Valley on California's Mendocino Coast, Esterlina has vineyards in sought-after appellations including the Anderson, Russian River, and Alexander Valleys. The family exclusively owns America's smallest AVA (American Viticultural Area), Cole Ranch in Ukiah, California, from which it harvests fruit for Esterlina's world class Rieslings, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
