With a history going back to 1874, current day Markham is comprised of 350 acres of sustainably farmed vineyards and both the vineyards and the winery have been GREEN certified.
In 2007, Brian Cunat decided to combine his love of wine and his dream of farming by purchasing a 50-acre property in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley. Working with an expert team of vineyard managers and winemakers, the property was transformed with Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier. Brian and the entire Cunat family look forward to sharing their dreams with you over a glass of Materra.
Winemaking, for them, is a natural extension of farming. Steve and Jill have both worked for many years in the sustainable agriculture and local food movement, and in 2003 they started Matthiasson Wines based on those values. Their wines are classical expressions of different grape varieties, some well-known like Chardonnay and Cabernet sauvignon, and some rare like Ribolla gialla and Refosco. The wines are refreshing, complement food, and are moderate in alcohol.
Tucked away in the enchanting rolling hills of Carneros AVA, you'll find McKenzie-Mueller Vineyards & Winery. Established in 1989 by husband and wife team Robert Mueller & Karen McKenzie, McKenzie-Mueller has continued to passionately produce small lots for over 25 years. Currently, production is around 2,000 cases annually with 9 different single varietal labels. This is a family owned and operated winery in which every drop of wine and every single vine is tended to by those hopelessly in love with the craft.
