Located in Lodi, California, the Acquiesce vineyard grows only white Rhône style varietals on 10.5 acres. The original vine stocks came from the renowned Château de Beaucastel in Châteauneuf du Pape. 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.
The vineyard was a retirement dream, something to do after Susan and Rodney Tipton left their corporate careers. At the time, acquiesce was only a verb: to surrender, to become quiet. The word became a vision of a time when they were no longer moving between different states (five of them), living in Sweden, and raising three boys. The idea became a reality in 2003 with the purchase of an 18-acre property in Lodi, California.
“One day, we are going to have a beautiful country property and we’ll call it Acquiesce” ~ Rodney Tipton.
