Labor Day is not a holiday that normally gets observed in the wine industry, unless you count working as the true celebration. After three consecutive Labor Day holidays off (2010, 2011 & 2012) here at Markham, we were all happy to spend it together doing what we love. We’re crushing it now, thankful for the amazing quality with which the 2013 vintage is providing. Team work is #1 during harvest, with an ‘in it to win it’ philosophy. My hope is that you can taste that in each glass of Markham wine because my team truly aims to please. It is that team collaboration that keeps us strong and excited to make each vintage better than the last…cheers to that!
