Concannon Vineyard Releases New Founders’ Tier While Celebrating 50 Years of Concannon Cabernet Clones 7, 8 and 11

Concannon Vineyard, established in 1883 and America’s oldest, ongoing winery under the same family label and stewardship, has released a new tier of wine while celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Concannon Cabernet Sauvignon Clones 7, 8 and 11.

The Founders’ Tier, which celebrates the visionary spirit and significant contributions of Concannon’s founder and the generations that followed, includes a Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon, Monterey County Chardonnay and San Francisco Bay Petite Sirah.

The release comes 50 years after the introduction of Concannon Cabernet Clones 7, 8 and 11. The Concannon Clones resulted from the collaborative work in 1965 between third generation vintner Jim Concannon and UC Davis in preparing and selecting for heat treatment cuttings propagated from a single Cabernet Sauvignon vine that winery founder James Concannon had imported from Château Margaux in 1893.

The Founders’ Tier, which includes the 2013 Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon, 2013 Monterey County Chardonnay and 2013 San Francisco Bay Petite Sirah, is available in on-premise venues nationwide starting this month as well as at Concannon Vineyard’s tasting room, SRP $20.
