Concord (CON-cord)

The most well-known American species grape in New York State. Belongs to the species Vitis labrusca and was first found growing wild near the Concord River in Concord, Massachusetts. Makes distinctly flavored but not very highly esteemed wines with brazen, candylike aromas and flavors. Though used in basic kosher wines like Manischewitz, Concord is much more appreciated as juice and jelly than wine.
