Our winery actually began in 1874 making us the fourth oldest continuously operated winery in Napa County. In 1977, this small winery was reborn with the name Markham Vineyards. During those years in the late 1970's and early 1980's we focused on making the best Cabernet Sauvignon. As flawless as this Cabernet was, our modest production left us relatively unnoticed. Over the following years, Markham received increasing praise as we began producing new varietals. But it wasn't until 1988 that things really began to take off. That year we began an ambitious four-year, multi-million dollar renovation, expansion and vineyard replanting program. These efforts would more than double our capacity and make Markham one of the most advanced, stunning winemaking facilities in the county. Even through the dust of renovation, Markham was able to produce three of the number-one rated wines from California as judged by Wine Spectator.

The Vineyards With vineyards strategically located in several of the Napa Valley's best growing regions, Markham is able to select grapes from several microclimates in order to achieve the balanced, rich style for which the winery is known. Great wine naturally begins in the vineyard. Here knowledge and experience combine with Mother Nature to produce the grapes for Markham's award winning wines.
