With four generations of family involvement, Concannon Vineyard's pioneering contributions to California winemaking and viticulture have built a landmark  winery with an enduring commitment to creating outstanding, award-winning wines proudly served on American tables for 130 years. Founder of America's first Petite Sirah®, Concannon Vineyard also introduced Concannon Cabernet Sauvignon clones 7, 8 and 11, which provided the backbone of Napa Valley's Cabernet Sauvignon resurgence in the 1970's and 1980's. The historic winery earned organic certification for its estate vineyards in 2010 and preserves an agricultural way of life by protecting vineyards from urban development through its Conservancy tier of critically acclaimed wines.

Concannon Vineyard will celebrate all things Cabernet Sauvignon at the winery on National Cabernet Day, Thursday, August 29, 2013, commemorating 130 years of growing and producing this highly-esteemed varietal. Concannon will be offering guests special tastings of Concannon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon and will host a "Cabernet is King" Barbeque Dinner with wine pairings.
