|Concannon Visual History
A visual history of the Concannon family that began with James Concannon’s immigration from Ireland to Livermore Valley in 1883. Over the next four generations the Concannon family made groundbreaking contributions to the California winemaking industry, including planting some of the first Bordeaux varieties, producing America’s First Petite Sirah, and helping introduce the Concannon Cabernet clones 7, 8, and 11 to the Napa Valley viticultural community. Includes interview with third generation vintner Jim Concannon.
Monique Soltani sits down with Livermore’s living legend.

|Late Harvest Semillon
Winemaker Julian Halasz explains the artisanal process of stomping botrytised semillon grapes just harvested from the Concannon Estate Vineyard. These grapes, which are benevolently affected by botrytis, or noble rot, will create a sweet, luscious wine similar to the highly revered Sauternes from Bordeaux. Co-starring Ivan and Raoul, loyal cellar workers.
