Donkey & Goat

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

Nice mention in the WSJ

Our weekend was kicked off with a nice mention by the Wall Street Journal’s
Dorothy J. Gaiter and John Brecher in Tastings “Grenache Enters the Spotlight“.

There is also Grenache Gris, which still isn’t recognized as a U.S. varietal wine on its own, but which is sometimes made into a rosé in the U.S. (Other Grenache rosés are made from regular Grenache.) A winery called A Donkey and Goat makes a tasty rosé from Grenache Gris, and the one we had in Santa Barbara, Curran Wines 2007, was remarkably focused and intense. The owner and winemaker, Kris Curran, says she made 100 cases of the rosé after tasting the Donkey and Goat version, deciding how she’d make it differently and buying cuttings from their source that were then planted for her.

On Sunday, our winery was featured at B Restaurant’s Sunday dinner. We had a great meal with friends, celebrated 2 birthdays and talked to some really wonderful new customers.

What a great weekend!
