Exciting Recent Awards
Acquiesce Winery has the honor of being chosen as Wine Business Magazine's top 10 Hottest Brands of 2018! They were invited to pour our Belle Blanc for 1,500 industry professionals last month at WBM's Bottle Bash in conjunction with the Unified Wine & Grape Symposium in Sacramento.
The 2017 Belle Blanc was awarded Best of Class at the American Fine Wine competition in Florida. This is a prestigious wine competition which invites only wines prescreened by an expert panel to participate, so that narrows the field to some very well made and interesting wines. The 2017 Viognier also won a Gold in this competition!
Every year the San Francisco Chronicle hosts a wine competition and this year there were 6,800 wines entered. With only 6 wines entered, Acquiesce Winery were awarded Gold Medals for the 2017 Clairette Blanche & 2017 Viognier, Silver Medals for the 2017 Grenache Blanc & 2016 Sparkling Grenache Blanc, plus 2 Bronze Medals!
Here is what to expect with the 2018 vintage. . .
With great weather for winegrapes during 2018, with mild temperatures allowing longer hang time for some gorgeous fruit, provided Acquiese with wonderfully balanced wines. The grape yield totals were up in the Lodi Appellation, so they were able to get more fruit and thus more wine from both the older and younger vines.
Picpoul Blanc will be appearing on the opening tasting room menu along with Grenache Blanc, Clairette Blanche, Viognier and Grenache Rosé. We have a few cases of the "Best of Class" 2017 Belle Blanc and have the 2016 Methode Champenoise Sparkling Grenache Blanc for sale also.
Watch for their new blend Ingénue to be released in July . . .a delicious blend of Grenache Blanc, Clairette Blanche, Bourboulenc and Picpoul Blanc!
