Apothic White Wine Review

Apothic White Wine

Apothic White is bottled by Apothic Wines and comes from Modesto, California.

In this review (plus video review) of Apothic White wine, we’ll cover price, alcohol content, taste and more of this popular white wine.

This wine is a blend of three different varietals.  They include Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio.

The winemaker is Debbie Juergenson.  She specifically “looks for a unique blend of grapes to create intense aromas and bold flavors.”

This review is one of the many Apothic Wines I’ve reviewed here on Honest Wine Reviews.

If you’re interested, you can also check out my reviews of Apothic Inferno, Apothic Crush, Apothic Red and Apothic Dark.

And if you like Rose, here’s my review of that wine:  Apothic Rose Wine Review

Finally, if you’d ever consider a coffee infused, red wine blend, here’s my review of that:  Apothic Brew Wine Review

All of these wines are very popular, with Apothic Dark being one of the most commented reviews on this site, due to it’s limited release.

Apothic White Wine Review and Tasting

For this review, I tasted the 2012 vintage of this wine.


In the glass, this wine is light straw in color and doesn’t appear very leggy.

It also has an interesting subtle copper shimmer to it.


The wine’s aroma was noticeable from afar.

It’s complex and includes notes of sweet orange and citrus.

There was also a muted hint of clove or some other dark spice in the background and just a bit of a whiff of alcohol.

Apothic White alcohol content, 12.0% per the bottle.


The flavors in Apothic White included some sweet citrus upon first sip.

But, shortly after that, the sweet flavors dissipated and the more subtle characteristics of the Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio came through.

There was also a tiny hint of vanilla in there as well.

Mouthfeel and Finish

The wine had a silky mouthfeel and a long finish.

Overall Opinion of Apothic White

Overall, I thought this was a great wine.

Like the other Apothic wines, the taste of this wine is unique.

The blend of the three varietals was very interesting.  You can pick out each grape, but when you “step back” you can sense how each one compliments the other.

If you like a silky white wine with a bit of front end sweetness, give this wine a try.

Apothic White price $9.99.


Have you tried this wine?


  1. My fiance’ & I recently tried the Apothic White, & we were very impressed!! It was Really good!
    Not too sweet, not too tangy.. loved the blend of the 3 wines, the crispness, & the fruitiness too!
    It was recommended to us as we are making selections for our upcoming Wedding!
    I have 2 questions though, if you don’t mind please?
    I read in another post that it is made at a winery in Modesto, CA. Would that be part of Gallo, by any chance?
    And then, would you recommend that wine with like an Alfredo pasta or creamy Pesto?
    Thanks so much! Cheers!

    1. Excellent question re: Gallo!

      After doing a bit off digging, I found that Apothic is, in fact, part of Gallo. I didn’t know that until now, so thanks for sending me down that path, Deanna.

      Here’s the smoking gun: https://www.gallo.com/portfolio/apothic

      As for pairing Apothic White with Alfredo or Pesto, I would certainly give it a try.

      I think it’s going to come down to how much acidity the wine has, to cut through all that creaminess.

      Since there was a bit of citrus in there when I reviewed it, I think it’s definitely worth trying those pairings.

      Of course, you won’t know for sure until you try it. Plus the level of acidity can vary year to year and even bottle to bottle.

      Anyway, hope that helps and thanks for checking out Honest Wine Reviews!


  2. I’ve been drinking apothic White for a few years now. Can you recommend something similar? I’d like to switch it up a bit but am usually disappointed when I buy something else. I’d like to stay in the same price point. Thanks!

    1. Hi Sarah… Thanks for commenting!

      I might suggest either Kung Fu Girl Riesling or Chateau Ste Michelle Riesling, both from Washington State.

      They should have that similar not too sweet citrus taste that Apothic White has.


  3. I have been enjoying the Apothic brand for over 3 years. Thru out the holidays this is the brand that I carry into dinner invites. Regardless of the occasion, you can’t go wrong if the Apothic brand is your choice……I absolutely love them!!

  4. We absolutely love the apothic wines my daughter and i have enjoyed both the red and white and the blend is really something

  5. We enjoyed our first bottle of “Apothic White” recently. It’s definitely not truly “sweet”, as some other sites have described it, but is rather on the sweeter side of dry.

    We enjoyed it immensely with a nice baked sea scallops dinner, & will continue to consider it as a very nice accompaniment to scallop dishes in the future – scallops being on the “sweetish” side of seafood.

  6. I absolutely love my first try to Apothic Dark wine. I ‘m going for the rest of it where I found it, and I will try other stores and get as many as possible. Thanks.

    1. Thanks for the comment! I’ll be curious to hear if Apothic Dark becomes hard to find in 2015 like it did last year. Hopefully that won’t be the case for Apothic White.

    2. Not sure if Thai the place to my personal review.. but I like to experiment with math my wine (mostly red of some type) but I tried the apothic Red.. an was disappointed idk if if the wine or the affect of it sampled on a tin easy screw open bottle ( some say doesn’t matter even with soda) but I’m my opinion taste like something like a watered down dark wine.. weak.. not sure how else to put it.. I’m regular to the 19 crimes am that has more bite or taste
