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 Vineyards 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.

Livermore Valley's Tesla Road is one of California's premier wine tasting trails. Concannon is located at the center stage of the wine growing renaissance in the Livermore Valley Wine Country.

Our friendly tasting room staff will make sure your visit to Concannon is memorable. The sun is shining and the gates are open. Come taste our award-winning wines, stroll our estate grounds and picnic on the lawn with family and friends.

Our tour and experience exceeded our expectations. From the young ladies at check in, to other staff members as we waited, to Woody the guide- all were hospitable and professional! The nice "personal" touches like names on the welcome chalkboard to the order form... very nice. Our group ended up buying half a dozen bottles of your wine, and my sister in law signed up to be a Member!

Concannon Vineyards is first class. Upon arrival my reservation was listed on a welcome board and I truly felt like my group and I were special. The wines were amazing and so full of great flavors. During our private tasting our group name was again listed on our tasting menu and our tour guide, Woody, truly made us feel welcomed and appreciated. We even became members!

I have been wine tasting all over Northern CA and Concannon is one of the prettiest wineries. I really enjoyed the leisurely pace of the the tasting & tour because you were able to enjoy your wine as you strolled through the winery and vineyard. The barrel room is breath-taking. After the tour my group had a picnic out on the grounds as we enjoyed the wine we bought.

We're club members- love the wines. We were thrilled to share our Concannon experience with our friends from SF- who are seeing the wonders of the Livermore valley wines and that Napa isn't the only wine valley nearby. Gregg, our tour leader, was FABULOUS! He was knowledgeable, friendly, and welcoming. We learned more about winemaking than learned over the years at other wineries. Kudos to Gregg

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.

Semi Private Reserve Tasting - 6 Guest Maximum on 12/18/16 2:30 PM

The tasting was an offer from Concannon to "make it up to you" because of a problem at another Concannon event. The space was attracrive and the host was attentive. We were given a taste of a few wines all of which were good. The sales pitch was not pushy which was nice. All in all it was an inexpensive tasting since all we paid was a tip to the host.

It was fun & staff was friendly/attentive. However, I've attended this event the previous 2 years, and was not happy w/changes. There used to be a more "buffet style" eating experience, which provided much more food. We were starving this year, with only a small snack tray. While the food tasted good and the idea of the parings was lovely, either provide larger portions or go back to buffet style.

Let me start by saying the TROLLY RIDE AND TOUR WAS FANTASTIC! BRIAN, the driver was a great guy and he was very friendly, nice and hospitable!!! However, the Concannon service was less to be desired to say the least. There was a mix up with our group and bottom line was we were asked to leave, we were accused of taking food & drinks that we didn't pay for and with a slight apology at the end.

This was an entertaining and informative seminar on the impact of glass shape on wine made from different varietal grapes. Since the glassware was part of the ticket price, I thought the value was excellent! I would recommend this event to all of my wine loving friends! The only improvement I would request is better sound in the room and perhaps a video feed for those in the back of the room.

He convincingly demonstrated how different glass shapes enhanced and disguised wine qualities. Concannon provided four wine pours, and the demo glassware was ours to keep.
