Celebrate National Cab Day with Concannon on August 29th

It’s time to celebrate big wine, big food, and big living! As National Cabernet Sauvignon Day (August 29th, 2013) draws near, Concannon Vineyard commemorates the 130th Anniversary of Concannon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. Cab has been a key part of our family heritage ever since our founder, James Concannon, imported cuttings from Bordeaux in 1883, starting a tradition of leadership and innovation in the expansion of Cabernet Sauvignon throughout the California wine industry.

In 1965, Concannon Vineyard collaborated with UC Davis to introduce Concannon Cabernet Sauvignon clones 7, 8 and 11. Taken from a single, disease-resistant Concannon Cab vine (nicknamed the “Mother Vine”), these clones provided the backbone of Napa Valley’s Cabernet Sauvignon resurgence in the 1970’s and 1980’s after the vine-killing root louse Phylloxera threatened to demolish the grape. Since Concannon Vineyard’s contribution, Cabernet Sauvignon has thrived, becoming the #1 planted red wine varietal in California and earning the title “King of Reds.”
