Ownership:

It has been more than one hundred years since California wine pioneer Jean Laurent quarried rock from the base of Glass Mountain in Napa Valley to build his famous stone cellar. In 1978, Bruce Markham, a California businessman with a passion for wine, purchased the old winery and launched Markham Vineyards, the parent company of Glass Mountain wines. Ten years later in 1988, Markham was sold to Mercian Corporation. In 1994, Mercian formed a joint venture with Terlato Wines International to produce a line of high quality wines under the Glass Mountain label.
