Concordselected from the wild in the 1840s, takes its name from the discovery of the grape in Concord, Massachusetts. This American grape has a longstanding history and is familiar due to its use in grape juices and jellies. Concord has medium-sized clusters of large berries, and its vines are incredibly vigorous and winter-hardy. Concord is fermented on the skins and is considered a "slip skin" grape, meaning that the skin easily separates from the pulp during winemaking. Concord is commonly produced as a sweeter wine that is fruity, with a medium body and vibrant blue-purple color.

Concord is celebrated during the month of July. 

Concord accounts for 6.6% of all grapes grown in Missouri.
