Concannon Vineyard

Concannon Vineyard Established by James Concannon in 1883, Concannon Vineyard has been producing award-winning wines for 120 years. The winery’s estate vineyards, situated in the Livermore Valley just east of San Francisco Bay, benefit from its unique gravely soil and sunny climate. Concannon’s operations are run from James Concannon’s original home, steps from the winery, and is one of the oldest continuously operated wineries in the country. Internationally known for its Petite Sirah, Concannon was the first winery to produce and bottle this varietal with the 1961 vintage. Today, Concannon carries on the tradition of crafting full flavored, complex, award-winning wines in the Livermore Valley.
