Acquiesce Winery Food Wine Acquiesce Wines


Saturday, February 6th at 1:00 PM (PST), 4:oo PM (EST).

I will begin with a cooking demonstration of Feuilletés aux Champignons Sauvages (velvety mushrooms sautéed in tarragon and cream, nestled in puff pastry). Following that, I will share the secret behind making a traditional French cheese souflée and a tempting Angel Food Cake.

Sue Tipton will be tasting through three of her award-winning Grenache wines. Editor Susan Manfull will provide historical and pertinent information regarding the Grenache varietals and how they are interpreted at Acquiesce, along with posing questions and taking some of yours. I have now tasted and paired all three wines, and you will receive three recipe cards – one to go with each wine.

How do I sign-up for the session?

The event is hosted on an interactive virtual platform, sign-up for the event here.  The event costs $99, including three (3) bottles from the Acquiesce Grenache selection (shipping in the United States). Acquiesce Club members save an additional 20% on the bottles. If you live outside of the U.S.A, sign-up for the class and learn about the wines.

Varietals grown on the property include Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, Clairette Blanche, Bourboulenc, Picpoul Blanc, Viognier and Grenache Noir. Acquiesce white wine blends include Belle Blanc and Ingénue. Join the Acquiesce Wine Club and know that there will be a few bottles set aside for you every year.

    David, Susan and Susan – what a fantastic collaboration of three great minds! I love the recipes especially the Feuilletes aux Champignons Sauvages! Combining cooking, wine pairing and wine education as a virtual class is a great way for all of us to stay connected and to travel virtually. Well done.

    I am totally in for the class. I started out as a classically trained pastry chef leaning all of the french pastries which is the base for all baking in my mind and the same goes for cooking. I learned the French classics which gave me my cooking skills of today, but I have not done any classic French cooking in MANY years so I look forward to taking more classes. I have followed some of Tasha Powell’s wonderful French cooking classes and ready to keep going and learn more!

    Thank you for this opportunity!

    Wow.. these wines look absolutely fabulous. I think I would want to try the Grenache Sparkling wine and also the Grenache Rose!
    Both sound fabulous.
    What’s amusing is that I recently had a Grenache Blanc.. from a different California winery!
