Donkey & Goat

Berkeley's first natural winery, crafting wines
from sustainably farmed vineyards since 2004.

8.5 tons crushed

Wow – I can not adequately express how it feels to be sliding down the back side. We are now more than half way compelte (with crushing – we are only about 1/4 of the way done with barreling down but I’m focusing on the positive). Yesterday we brought in 2.2 tons of our Vieilles Vignes Syrah. This year we picked from a new section of the old block which was planted in 1899. Now those are some OLD vines.

The fruit looked perfect. The flavors were perfect. The balance was perfect. Even the numbers were perfect. This wine will truly make itself. We will just watch.

Up next is our Vidmar Syrah and a new Mourvedre vineyard.
