To Acquiesce . . .

Acquiesce – verb: to surrender, to become quiet.  Acquiesce has become our mantra — to submit to nature, to yield to the vineyard, to acquiesce to the grapes so they present their own true character.  Attention to detail reigns here with sustainable vines that are lightly watered, grapes that are handpicked and then whole cluster pressed to create wines that are both classic and traditional.  For a memorable experience, these food loving wines are paired with small bites in our 100 year-old converted barn tasting room.

Susan Tipton

Susan Tipton is the owner and founding winemaker of Acquiesce Winery & Vineyards in Acampo, California.  Acquiesce is Lodi’s only all white wine winery featuring estate grown Rhône varietals in a sea of Zinfandel grapes.  Her tasting room resides in a 100 year old barn on her 18 acre property surrounded by wine grapes.

Inspired by her first glass of white Châteauneuf-du-Pape wine, Susan began planting her estate grapes in 2008 which include Picpoul Blanc, Grenache Blanc, Clairette Blanche, Bourboulenc, Viognier and Roussanne.  The combination of Lodi’s fertile soils and these select white Rhone grapes which are hand-picked, whole cluster pressed and fermented in stainless steel have created quite a buzz — Acquiesce Winery has garnered numerous Double Gold, Gold and Best of Class awards and has the distinction of Best Viognier in California in 2016.
