This is the first year we included Grenache grapes from our recently planted Alban clone vines and we are thrilled with the results! Totally Provençal style with a salmon hue, this rosé has hints of strawberry and watermelon with a refreshing crisp mouth feel. Delicious on its own, this wine pairs with almost any food.

Top Rated Rosés of 2018 - International Wine Review
Chosen from 250+ international rosés.
We have 1.5 acres of estate Grenache for our dedicated Rosé. Our grapes were harvested from our estate vineyard located in the Mokelumne River AVA of the Lodi Appellation. Our Grenache grape clones come from both the famous French Château de Beaucastel Winery in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape region and from the renowned Alban Grenache clone. The cool nighttime breezes from the Mokelumne River nearby gives the grapes ripe, fruity flavors with excellent balance

Our estate Grenache grapes are grown under the Lodi Rules for sustainable winegrowing. They were hand-picked and the majority of the grapes were whole cluster pressed, with the remainder crushed and cold-soaked before pressing. The grapes were harvested in the early morning to keep acidity at its highest, providing the vibrancy in the wine. The juice is then cool fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to highlight the pure Lodi fruit expressions.
Food Pairing Notes
Pairs well with any food but try it with Mediterranean cuisine or Spanish tapas for a special treat … or just enjoy it outside on a sunny day!
Acquiesce Winery is Lodi’s only dedicated white wine winery. We make premium, food-friendly, white wines and rosés from estate grown wine grapes. Our vines are lightly watered and thinned. The grapes are then handpicked and whole-cluster pressed to maintain their optimal fruit characteristics. We acquiesce to the grapes. . . and to nature.
