Since 1883, Concannon Vineyard has been a trailblazer in California wine and is proud to be the home of Americas First Petite Sirah®. In 1961, my father, Jim, recognized this luscious varietys potential and was the first to release Petite Sirah as a standalone varietal wine. As in life, it is true with grapes that some of the best gifts are found in small packages. And, as the name implies, these grapes are small in size, but produce rich and intensely flavorful yet elegant wines. - John Concannon, Fourth Generation Vintner

Also called “Durif”, it resembles the syrah grape with potent aroma and sturdy flavor but in a smaller package. Petit syrah is a distinct, concentrated, relatively tannic red. Often used in red blends it provides a dark, rustic flavor.
