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.

Read More

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.

Grape Arbor Rental – 8 Guest Minimum on 6/08/19 11:00 AM

The Winery itself was beautiful. I was disappointed at the service. We rented the Grape Arbor. When we arrived NOTHING was set up! Even after guest arrived we had to wait for ten to bring over a box of glasses and watch him open up the glasses on the table. It would have nice to have it set before our guests arrived. Other than that, the weather was great, beautiful grounds.

Months before the date I was told that if the weather did not cooperate we would be put in the patio area. Upon arrival we were put in the open lawn area. The wind was terrible and the weather was not great. Long story short with brief talks to front desk and managers we were moved to the patio area and all was wonderful. Thank you for that!!!

We were very excited about the experience and then the weather stepped in. Really think this should have been rescheduled, as wine glasses toppled over, jam flying off the table etc... The staff as always was amazing in the mist of all of this they never lost their smiles or sense of humor which we thought was incredible. The woman running it (sorry forgot her name) was wonderful also!

Breakfast in the vineyard was a wonderful experience that everyone should treat themselves to at least once. To literally sit outdoors in the vineyard, enjoying the beautiful morning, delicious food and scrumptious homemade jellies, all of which was of course accented with a variety of richly flavorful Concannon wines. It was my birthday shared by my family creating wonderful memories for us all.

What flavors of jelly beans do you need to taste together to mimic the taste and smell of the Concannon Sauvignon Blanc and a few more whites and reds? if you you take a class with LeeAnn Kaufman at Concannon, you will know! Excellent wine tasting class and we received the extra jelly beans as a treat.

Ploughman's Platter on 3/16/19 12:30 PM

We went to the Founder's day celebration and were underwhelmed and felt it was very overpriced. We were supposed to get 5 pours plus a "bonus" pour, and we only got 4 pours with the bonus which was really not the same quality as the rest of the wine. Pours were extremely small. The cheese platter was also very small.

They lost our reservation even after I confirmed it on Thursday. It was a party of 12 that was supposed to have the wine bar but ended up squeezing on 2 cocktail tables. This was for my sisters birthday. Just so dissappointed by what happened & really surprised. We love concannon, my brother in law works there and I just can’t believe they didn’t have the reservation.

I really enjoy the concannon experience. I am a member of many California wineries, and I often say the vineyard's employees play a huge role in your wine experience and Robyn was no exception. She failed to connect with our group. I had to pull information out of her. I felt like I was working to make sure my group had an awesome experience instead of Robyn working to make sure that my group.

I thought that the history was interesting, the wine was tasty, and the tour guide was pretty knowledgeable. A highlight was being able to taste the grapes right off the vine & later taste the corresponding wine. I have never been to a winery that encourages that."
