Today’s Quick Sip is the Acquiesce Winery & Vineyards 2013 Viognier. I first tasted this delightful wine this past spring during a visit to the Acquiesce tasting room in Lodi, California. And just last week, I had an opportunity to re-visit it along with several other vibrant Lodi white wines for a ‘Lodi Summer Tasting’ put on by the good folks at Lodi Wine. In a wine producing region better known for its reds, Acquiesce may stick out like a sore thumb. Moved by a white Châteauneuf-du-Pape, winemaker and proprietor Sue Tipton, crafts small amounts (approximately 1000 total cases) of bright and refreshing Rhone-inspired white wines from 100% estate-grown fruit. The reddest thing you’ll find behind the tasting-bar is a deliciously fruity and crisp Grenache Rosé. During my visit, the entire lineup, which consisted of a Viognier, Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, Picpoul Blanc, and a white blend, were all well-made, reasonably priced, food-friendly, and perfect for summertime sipping. For further information and where you can find the Viognier, please see my tasting notes below.
