Donkey & Goat

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

Rose is getting close

I spent the morning at the winery today – we are trying to nudge one of three barrels of Rose to complete malic fermentation. The other two barrels are done.

There are many ways to get malic fermentation. For us, we choose the simplest. The barrel that hadn’t moved was stainless steel. I racked it into an older wood barrel hoping that the oxygen and wood will move it through. We should know in a week.

We will be bottling it soon and it is tasting yummy.
