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).

I’ve had some bad wine out of Livermore so visiting local wineries wasn’t high on my list. Concannon has a history with cabernet so we stopped by for a tasting. I was surprised how good the wine was. ... more »
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
