Donkey & Goat

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

Grenache is dry

After spending a somewhat normal day with the family (Pumkin Patch photos coming shortly), we ran some tests on the Grenache Noir and Syrah. The Syrahs are close to dry and the Grenache is dry. Instead of pressing the Grenache, we will only use free run juice. The tannins are quite strong in the seeds and we are willing to forgo the extra juice to improve the quality. We will barrel down sometime this week – the first of nearly twenty barrels of red!
