The Tasting Panel

Man of the Year: Jim Concannon

Jim was honored to receive this award from Tasting Panel which says “the family story runs through Concannon’s wines as surely as does the vineyard fruit. This heritage is dotted with “firsts,” including the development of Cabernet Sauvignon clones 7, 8 and 11 (known as the Concannon clones ) and being the first to produce a varietally-labeled Petite Sirah, in 1961. Concannon has spearheaded the movement toward land conservancy by being the first winery to place its estate into a trust; other wineries have since followed Concannon’s lead.”
