About Concannon Vineyard

America’s oldest, continuously operating winery under the same family label and stewardship since 1883. We bottled “America’s First Petite Sirah" in 1964 and “Concannon Clones 7, 8 and 11” helped California Cabernet Sauvignon achieve worldwide recognition.

Concannon Vineyard has a proud history of Firsts. Always an industry leader, Concannon is the first successful winery to be founded by an Irish immigrant. When James Concannon planted white Bordeaux cuttings in the late 1800's, we became one of the first wineries to make Bordeaux-style wines in California. In 1950, we hired the first professional, female winemaker, Katherine Vajda. In 1961 we introduced America's first Petite Sirah, sparking a love affair with the varietal. Our inaugural vintage was so well-received that we have produced it ever since, and it has become our highly regarded flagshiip wine. Shortly thereafter, Concannon's role in the California Cabernet Sauvignon industry became truly historic. From the 1970's onward, the famous Concannon Clones 7, 8 and 11 provided the backbone of the huge expansion in Cabernet plantings in California's premium wine regions as well as many of Napa's most prestigious vineyards. California Cabernet, the wine that primarily placed California on the world wine map, was built upon our Concannon Clone vines.

My team of 14 and I ran 30 minutes late due to traffic out of San Jose and when we finally arrived our Host was waiting for us and made our wine tasting event in the library the most fun. We drank wine, laughed, drank more wine and laughed more...fun was had by all and I would definitely do this again - minus the traffic!

From the moment we were greeted by our steward, the 8 of us felt truly pampered. Woody gave us information on the history of Concannon, the vineyards, the processing, etc. We did some tasting before our tour, more tasting along the way, and during our picnic lunch. We went on a Monday at noon; it was lovely having the place to ourselves and tasting great wines under the arbor!

What a warm and welcoming place!! We arrived and was immediately welcomed into the tasting room for our yummy bowl of chili and tastings of several different variety of wines. This is our second year participating in the Livermore Lights Wine Trolley, and once again we were very pleased with the event. The trolley driver is fantastic and always interacts with riders. We will be doing it again.

The holiday wine tour was wonderful and we all had a great time. I was a little disappointed in the food set up in the beginning. It would have been a lot nicer if it was inside the winery room as well as paired with cheese, salami and crackers instead of chili. Felt like a school lunch to me and not really what I had expected for $60. The driver was great!

When we were tasting the wine none of the pouters described the wine we were tasting. For the table on the lawn that we reserved it was next to a very loud and large family who had laid a blanket right next to our table. It was very intrusive and not relaxing at all. Actually I am considering cancelling my membership.

The Historic Barrel Room tasting tour (we had 10 guests) was fabulous. Our guide Woody did a great job, and the food pairing/wine sommelier person (LeeAnn?) was also informative and fun. This was well worth it. The food spread with the wine tasting was impressive. Later we sat in the patio area of the Underdog Wine Bar for small plates and wine, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

This was an introductory seminar to using "the grid" for blind tasting. A mix of education and entertainment, it was less about wine appreciation, and more about wine analysis. We tasted 4 wines and identified them from a multiple choice list of 10 possibilities. Concannon's "Somm series" of wine seminars is somewhat cumulative, with frequent references to materials learned in previous sessions.
