About Markham

The soul of Markham wines is rooted in our community, our people and our land.

As one of Napa Valley’s longest-continually-run wineries, we honor the heritage of this remarkable wine growing region with every grape grown, every wine bottled, every sip savored. From decades of sustainable farming to our long, unapologetic fascination with Merlot, we celebrate the adventurous spirit of Napa while embracing the unique voice of the land.

 

Merlot is the flagship wine here at Markham. It’s sometimes perceived as being ‘soft’ but I think what is meant is balanced — and balance is the key to making great wine.

Kimberlee Nicholls, Winemaker

 

Each of our exceptional wines is a nuanced expression of the region’s character, born of the soil and nurtured with respect for yesterday’s successes and a passion for tomorrow’s discoveries. With Bordeaux in our blood, it’s no surprise we were one of the first California wineries to grow and specialize in Merlot.

Sustainably Made

Healthy soil means thriving vines, expressive fruit and a holistic farming system that sustains the environment. We tend to our land in a manner that replenishes rather than depletes our natural resources. It’s the best thing for the earth — and our wines.
