WelcomeDon’t miss visiting one of the oldest, continuously working wineries in the Napa Valley during your wine country adventure - Markham Vineyards! Stop by any time 10am-5pm without an appointment to taste our wines and see our historic stone cellar, the very heart of our present-day winery, which was built in 1879 by Bordeaux immigrant, Jean Laurent. The rough-hewn stone from Glass Mountain has stood the test of time. The winery was purchased by Bruce Markham in 1978 and a new, modern winemaking facility, art gallery, and visitor center were all constructed around the original stone cellar.
Today, visitors enjoy tasting Markham’s single-estate and winery- only wines while viewing the latest exhibits in the art gallery. Featured artists change regularly, so check their website to see what’s showing now. The staff at Markham love celebrating special occasions with up to 250 guests by pairing their award-winning wines with culinary treats from the valley's most celebrated chefs. The winery’s event spaces can accommodate small, intimate luncheons, brunches, and wine and food pairings, or large rehearsal dinners and corporate events.
Check your local listings to see the winery in the public television series Vintage: Napa Valley 2012. The show follows the winemaker and cellar crew in the vineyard and at the winery so you can really see what goes into making your favorite bottle of wine. It’s the palate, tasting skills and experience of our winemaker, Kimberlee Nicholls, who has been with us for more than 20 years now, that ensures Markham's consistency and true-to-type varietal expression are evident vintage after vintage.
