It has been more than hundred years since California wine pioneer Jean Laurent quarried stone from the base of Glass Mountain in Napa Valley to build his wine cellar. That cellar stands today and serves as both a literal and figurative link to the past and Laurent's guiding principles of quality and values. In 1978, Bruce Markham, a California businessman with a passion for wine, purchased the old winery and launched Markham Vineyards, the parent of Glass Mountain Wines. From the beginning, Bruce Markham's vision was to make quality wines, while contributing to the preservation and growth of the wine industry. As a result, The Markham Winery has developed a reputation of high regard as a producer of world-class wines. Commitment to producing exceptional wines has earned Markham the cover of Wine Spectator magazine and a steady stream of accolades from the press. – Description from JasminaDragoljevic

Glass Mountain on Snooth

  • I tasted through a selection of Chenin Blanc for #CheninBlancDay last June. Right off the bat I knew we had to bring these wines to the Snooth audience.  I was hoping to do it in the winter months for one very good reason: South African Chenin Blanc retains startlingly robust fruits (more than enough to stand up to warming winter dishes), while ...

  • RC - The white wine came first (basically the wines are shown in order of their being consumed), with appetizers of olives, carrots, crackers & horseradish cheese.  Next up was the Duckhorn cab from Red Mountain - paired with the soup.  Following that was the Barolo with the cod, our main dish.  The Faust cab was paired with dessert, along with ...

  • In many ways Greece is the ancient epicenter to modern society. Governmental structures, intellectual gatherings, food and wine celebrations, all stem from Greece. As much a part of historic Greek culture as gods and goddesses is Greek wine. Dating back to approximately the third century BC, evidence suggests wine was an integral part of Greek s... Read More

  • Just saw this offer from Chambers Street. Have had earlier vintages of this label (both whites and reds, though more of the whites with raclette, etc.) when snowboarding in Chamonix and Val d'Isère, and it's (very) good stuff.

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is a deep, inky purple in the glass, with a subdued garnet tint along the edges. The nose is just a dream, wonderful notes of leather, cedar, a hint of peat and some peppery spice notes, just the ideal combination of aromas that I've come to love in a good Washington wine. The taste is a rush of rich fruit, sweet cherry, black plum an... Read More

  • In 1991 the popularity of Zinfandel wasn’t a speck of what it is today. Wine lovers either didn’t know what it was or didn’t understand the grape. Therefore, in 1991, a passionate group of true believers formed ZAP, Zinfandel Advocates and Producers. This group is made up of winemakers and Zinfandel lovers alike. Their mission is to educate the ... Read More
