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.

We reserved a picnic table under the trees and it was just awesome. We were greeted immediately by a staff member and shown to our table. There's outside wine tasting, so we tasted and bought a bottle to drink. There were many families on the lawn enjoying the scenery and playing games. We had a fun and relaxing time. Afterwards we took a tour and tasting that was wonderful.

The Art of Blind Tasting on 5/31/17 6:00 PM

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.

We had one of the loveliest tastings and experiences at Concannon. We were greeted with our name on the welcome sign, and also by the check in staff. We were given a glass of wine to enjoy since we were early to our reservation. Our tasting was by the wineries Somm. She was wonderfully knowledgeable and funny. All these years of tasting in Napa, we learned more in that hour with her. Thank you!

Winery was great! Atmosphere was great! Love the trees, flowers, & vines. Loved the picnic area but did not like that we weren't allowed to hangout on the grass anymore unless you have a baby. That is the whole point. I would recommend to allow people to lay/hangout on the grass. It won't keep them from drinking wine.

Concannon Vineyard offers an inviting experience to both those new & regular clients of the tasting room. They have developed an experience for every visitor - whether there for a "tasting flight" in either their two tasting rooms or a casual afternoon of conversation out in the Pavilion/Grass area or their Underdog Wine Bar. Associates are friendly, helpful and strive make it a memorial visit.

Colcannon was the best visit out of the wineries in Livermore. I am doing a project for a college class on facilities and management and Concannon was very understanding to my needs and questions. David (our tour guide) was amazing and filled with information. At the end, we went to the lawn and finished our tasting. It was great that John Concannon was walking around talking to everyone.

Upon arrival there was not enough room for our party of 4 women to stand and enjoy our tasting, employees placed us next to an open door. The wine tasting menu was poor and not balanced, the food was minimal and had no substance. There were loud, drunk women screaming and trying to take our seats at every stop. Overall, extremely disappointmented. Sad to see this was a reflection of Concannon.
