Concannon Vineyard awarded ten gold and silver medals


Concannon Vineyard, the second-largest winery in the Livermore Valley of California, won ten Gold and Silver medals at the 2013 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition.

“The San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition is one of the most prestigious in the country, so this accomplishment is very exciting for us,” fourth-generation vintner John Concannon said.

“These awards are always a testament to our commitment to quality and long standing reputation as veteran winemakers. We are especially pleased to receive Golds for our Cabernet Sauvignon. My great-grand father first planted Bordeaux cutting of Cabernet Sauvignon in 1903, and we are proud to still be producing that same wine today.”

Concannon is one of the oldest wineries in the United States and was designated a California Historical Landmark in 1958.

The Gold and Silver medal-winning wines ranged in price from $20 to $35 per bottle.
