We’re so fortunate to have Donkey & Goat Winery in the East Bay. They’ve been making natural wines for over a decade--way before “natural” became trendy. In fact, they’ve been listing ingredients on their label since 2004, something few wineries do, and those ingredients are simply stated “grapes and minimal sulphur.”
Owned and operated by Jared & Tracey Brandt, Donkey & Goat sources grapes from sustainably farmed vineyards in the Sierra Nevada, Mendocino and Napa. In the cellar nothing is removed and nothing is added, with the exception of minimal sulphur. They are a model of transparency and honesty, providing extensive information about their practices. And their wines are simply delicious, with great character.
