About The Program

With a long history in Napa Valley winemaking, Markham Vineyards recognizes the significance of its roots and believes in honoring the experiences and connections that shape us as individuals and organizations. That core philosophy is the inspiration behind the Mark of Distinction, a program that empowers people to give back to their communities.

In 2012, Markham Vineyards is going to expand on its charitable giving by awarding financial support to ten organizations that are making a "Mark of Distinction" in their neighborhoods, cities or towns rather than the two grants given in previous years.  In addition to the ten charities, Markham will continue to recognize and reward those people that are making strides daily with the Sip of Service program, a sweepstakes available to visitors of the Markham Vineyards Blog, that will serve as a reminder that even the little things can make a big difference.

“I’m thrilled to expand and refresh the structure of our Mark Of Distinction program with hopes of impacting more lives” said Markham President Bryan Del Bondio. “As an initiative that is close to my heart, we look forward to continuing the tradition of giving back in 2012.”
