Acquiesce Winery

2015 Acquiesce Grenache Blanc Harvest

About

Aquiesce has become the mantra of our small white wine winery: we seek to submit ourselves to nature, to yield to the vineyard, to acquiesce to the grapes. It is in this way that we believe we can produce wines of the best quality. We offer only premium white wines and rosés which are crisp, light and brilliant. We love what we do and we think you will, too! Come taste our wines and visit the Acquiesce surrounded by 18 acres of wine grapes. Our century old barn houses our tasting room. Let us slide open the barn doors for you and pour you some of our white wines. As you sip a glass of our white outside surrounded by vines with a hundred acre view, consider taking a walk out to the vineyard and try the Grenache Blanc right on the vine. We invite you to “Acquiesce” and join us for a tasting of our delicious, Rhone inspired white and rosé wines. Our tastes include small bites to pair with our wines for a unique experience!

History

My passion for wine, food and entertaining brought me to this place in my life!

I was raised in a food loving, tomato growing, Julia Child watching, blue-collar home. Taught early in life about fresh and local foods, I realized the significance of cooking for my family and of sitting together around the dinner table each evening and sharing our day.

My gypsy spirit led me to explore many unique regions of this country and abroad. Of course, my passion was about the wine and food in each region we lived. Whether making jam from “wild” concord grapes or preserving peaches while living in rural Michigan, finding the freshest potatoes at the farmer’s market while living in Sweden or scouring local orchards and vineyards in Portland, Oregon, I was always on the hunt for the best wines to pair with local, fresh foods to enhance my family’s mealtimes.

Shortly after arriving in California in 1999, I began making wine from the grapes surrounding our home and 100 year old barn. I learned hands-on grape growing, pruning, watering, shoot thinning, picking, sorting, crushing, pressing, fermenting and filtering. These years of winemaking helped me to craft my style, and after selecting the best Rhone varietals, my dream of a white wine winery has come to fruition.

Practices & Techniques

The Acquiesce vines are lightly watered and the grapes are handpicked and then whole cluster pressed. The wines are left unoaked. We do this according to our view that it is important for you to be able to taste the quality of the fruit.
