We stopped in for a late lunch on a Saturday. Their menu includes cheese and artisan meat plates, salads and hot small plates. We decided to share the Wild Boar sliders (three sliders to an order) and the bison chili served with their potato chips. Both of us enjoyed a glass of wine with our small plates. It was a... More

A group of us decided that a tasting trip to the vineyards was in order on a rainy day. We enjoyed our tasting experience, and then had a very good lunch in the restaurant. They offer a variety of off-beat items, from small plates to full salads to Banh My sandwiches. We enjoyed a variety of items and all were... More

To try some wine tasting while sitting on the outside patio. Great seating and tables will enhance you eating pleasure. Bring a group and enjoy a wonderful afternoon lunch. A fun menu to explore your culinary desire. I am sure, once you try Underdog, you will agree that you will be back with guests. They will be impressed! ☺

Warm and friendly scene at Underdogs—craft cocktails, exotic sausages and hot dogs with names like the "California" the "Greek," the Ball Park," using fresh local ingredients and coming with sides of kale slaw or homemade sauerkraut. Want just a quick app and a drink? Then go for the curried white bean dip. Music on weekends, from jazz to DJ. And... More

I stopped in after doing the wine tour at the Concanon Vineyard. We ordered a variety of appetizers with a special shout out for the bacon wrapped figs and the chicken sliders. I am also one that doesn't like wine, I did try a wine cocktail and enjoyed it.

This is a beautiful setting at the Concannon winery. We went here for lunch on Sunday after making a reservation in advance. We showed up and they have no reservation for our party. We could show on the call history of the cell phone that we had called them and we knew the name of the person who supposedly took... More

A memorable lunch on the patio at the Concannon Vineyards with friends included several choices of excellent wine flights and very tasty entrees. The atmosphere, views, ambiance, service, menu, and price are top notch.

Summer says it all in the Livermore Valley when it comes to Concannon's Underdog Wine Bar & Restaurant. A lovely covered patio with a scenic view of vineyards and picnic area make the atmosphere summer "purrfect". I had the Farmstead cheese plate with sourdough bread that was wonderful along WITH an heirloom tomato and mozzarella salad that was delicious. I... More

We have been here twice and I'm sure we will be back. First occasion we ate inside but really it is very noisy. Second time outside and that was great and the surrounding area is lovely. Enjoyed different flights of wine and the food was very good. Just a great relaxing place to spend a couple of hours. Happy Hour... More

Food was not good. Finally got our money back for one dish. Waitperson blamed it on outside caterer who prepares their food. They should stick to wine tasting. Tiramisu was awful.

Description
The Underdog Wine Bar is a hidden gem amongst the romance of the vines in the heart of wine country. We offer an impressive selection of over 50 wines from around the world, California, and our very own Livermore Valley. The bar and lounge offers a warm contemporary approach to our unique wine and food experience. Nestled in the original barrel room of the historic Concannon Winery established in 1883, it features hand crafted tables made from repurposed 100-year old wood. We offer exquisite small plates of food. Think of them as Tapas with a global and California flair. Using seasonal and locally sourced ingredients, the Chefs craft menu items that are meant to be shared and paired with any one or several of the over 50 wines we offer.
