Donkey & Goat is a family owned and operated winery located in Berkeley California. Tracey & Jared Brandt craft their natural wines from Rhône varietals, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grown in the Anderson Valley, Mendocino Ridge and El Dorado appellations. Named one of five "Winemakers to Watch for 2011" by Jon Bonée at the San Francisco Chronicle, Tracey & Jared trained in France, and their maverick winemaking has helped pave the way for the natural wine movement.
Our much anticipated Mendocino pink wine made from 95+ year old Grenache Gris vines. This year we destemmed and stomped 100% to a 4ton wood vat where it stayed for 33 hours before we pressed off to tank. Here the juice settled for 24 hours before moving to neutral FO barrel where both primary & secondary fermentation began naturally.
