Underdog Wine Bar At Concannon Vineyard, (925) 583-1581. L-D daily. This small-plates lounge has more than 50 local and international wines available by the glass. Foods are locally sourced, and veggies are grown on site. What’s not to like about a cheese board with dates paired with a glass of Cabernet? This new venue is built with redwood reclaimed from the winery’s original buildings. Decor is modern, with plush furniture and a shaded outdoor terrace featuring drapes as moveable walls. Live music is sometimes scheduled.
At left, Jim Concannon, age 81 and grandson of the winery's founder, autographs his new book, “Concannon: The First One Hundred and Twenty-Five Years.”
