Parentage of the grape: Hybrid between Vitis Vinifera and Vitis Labrusca

History of the grape: Concord started out as a chance hybrid between vitis vinifera and vitis labrusca. It was first introduced in 1843 by Ephraim W. Bull and is named after the town of Concord, Massachusetts. Because of its hardiness, it is now the most widely planted vine in the United States. However, its success as an ingredient in table wines has been limited due to its “foxy” flavor, and it is more common in jams, jellies, and grape juices and as a table grape. Indeed, perhaps the second most important event in the grape’s history occurred in 1869, when Dr. Thomas Bramwell Welch pasteurized it to prevent it from fermenting and made Welch’s grape juice. Concord is also made into Kosher wine, which often has a lot of residual sugar.
