Donkey & Goat

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

if i only had to make the wine this would be easy….

i am continually amazed at the breadth of “projects” that land on my desk as a winemaker/small business owner and operator. this week alone:
-contact post office to figure out why our new address is not a deliverable address
-decide on cork for rose and if we go with a color (synthetic is used on the rose) possibly change the pms color on the label to better match
-pull 8 samples for a tasting tomorrow, stir chard lees and add sulfur to the rose (1st time since harvest) now that ml is complete and we are set to bottle next month
-finish up 3 yr forecast
-add priorities to our master “shopping list” for the new space
-follow up with ttb (it looks like our basic permit for the new space is on its way – ya-hooooo!
-eat lunch – which i’m going to do now
