Wine Tours - Visiting Concannon Vineyard

Concannon Vineyard was the first Livermore Winery that still survives today. The now widely planted Cabernet Sauvignon clones 7 and 8 were pioneered in the vineyard. These clones have been used for many years all over California, and have produced some of the best wines in the state’s history.

But today, Concannon focuses on producing Petite Sirah. They are widely recognized for producing complex, award winning wines with enviable consistency. Concannon’s Petite Sirah vineyard rows are oriented to run south-north. In this direction, they get maximum sun exposure, which promotes ripening. The cooling influence of the San Francisco Bay is felt in the evening, as the ocean breeze sweeps across the vineyard, cooling the vines.

Concannon recently released a version of Petite Sirah varietal that is in the ultra premium price range. Few examples of this grape have commanded this much attention, and it is a testament to the dedication of Concannon Vineyards.

I visited this winery on my last trip to San Francisco and loved it. Friendly people, good wine, what more could you ask for.

Livermore has some great producers that are too often overlooked in my opinion. Like Wente, Concannon has been making impressive wine for many years. I like their rustic Petite Sirah and Sauvignon Blanc.
