Our signature varietal, this super food-friendly wine has intense aromas of green apples, nasturtiums and crushed white pepper that land on the palate with Meyer lemons, elder flowers and juicy stone fruit minerality. Pairs beautifully with seafood, salads, cream sauces, spicy Asian and Mexican food, and especially sushi!
We have 3 acres of Grenache Blanc in our Estate Vineyard. Our largest varietal planting to date, these vines lie on 2 different soil types that add complexity to the finished product. These clones are Tablas Creek cuttings from the famed Chateau de Beaucastel in the Chateauneuf-du-Pape AOC. Our climate is very similar to that of the Southern Rhone, with cool nighttime Delta breezes that help us retain acidity while also providing an excellent balance of fruit. Starting out moderate and promising, 2022 brought an unforgiving hot spell at harvest, so we picked a little earlier to uphold quality. Mother Nature was harsh, but kind enough to give us a higher yield than expected.
All of our grapes are hand-picked and immediately pressed as whole clusters to capture the fresh, flavorful Grenache Blanc character. 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 fruit expressions.

“Acquiesce Winery & Vineyard 2020 Lodi Grenache Blanc: A variety most at home in France’s Rhone Valley, Grenache Blanc is gaining adherents in California, thanks largely to the gumption and imagination of Susan Tipton of Acquiesce in Lodi. She appreciates food-and-wine pairing to an extent that is exceptional even in California’s winemaking community, and as a consequence styles her wines to shine at the dinner table, which her Grenache Blanc will do for its refreshingly citric flavor, steely structure and dry and snappy finish. Whatever fresh seafood is on the plate, this Grenache Blanc should be in the glass.”
This goat cheese and rosemary soufflé was a perfect pairing by Rodney with our 2019 Ingénue highlighted in our Elevated Tasting Experience. Poured into mini muffin cups this recipe makes excellent one bite appetizers.View Recipe
