Concannon Vineyard, Livermore

4.3
#1 of 13 in Wineries in Livermore
Concannon Vineyard is the second-largest winery in the Livermore Valley of California, producing around 30,000 cases annually. It is well known for its Petite Sirah and Concannon was the first winery to bottle this grape as a varietal wine in 1961. It also produces several other varieties of wine, including Chardonnay. Concannon is owned by The Wine Group.
Concannon was founded in 1883 by James Concannon of Inishmore, County Galway. Its success in producing and selling sacramental or altar wine for the Roman Catholic Church helped it to survive national Prohibition. Grape cuttings from this vineyard were introduced to Mexico between 1889 and 1904 for the improvement of its commercial viticulture. As such, the vineyard has been designated a California Historical Landmark (#641).

  • You can only taste in the tasting room, but if you buy a bottle the grounds are very nice for a little picnic. You can bring whatever outside food you want to pair with the wine. Lots of shade, but probably still pretty warm on a hot summer's day outside.
  • Love this place! Been here a couple of times and the staff entertain and describe all the wines we tasted. Their wine is very, very excellent! More expensive wine tasting than others in the area
