A Look Inside Concannon's Winning Wines

A Look Inside Concannon's Winning Wines

Posted:

The very fact that Concannon Vineyard wines still are made in a deliberate and intentional manner, with great respect to the land from which the grapes draw life, and in keeping with the longstanding tradition of this historical brand, is something of a miracle. They are effectively a small island fortress in the middle of the great Wine Group sea, holding up a torch of consistency and quality, continuing the quest of the Concannon family, even though Jim and John are effectively deep in the background now. Their legacy lives on in the efforts of James Foster and Alyssa Barber, the winemakers in charge of putting together the carefully sourced and thoughtfully crafted wines that bear the Concannon label.
