From Grape to Glass

Head over to Donkey and Goat Winery in Berkeley and you’ll hear similar enthusiasm about natural wines. Located in an old ink factory on Sixth Street, the urban winery features a tasting room whose walls are lined with framed photos documenting its wine-making process — from picking grapes in El Dorado and Anderson Valley to stomping the fruit by foot in big slatted vats to the actual fermenting, all done in wood-only vessels right in its Berkeley warehouse. Led by the husband-and-wife team of Jared and Tracey Brandt, Donkey and Goat has slowly become a major player in natural winemaking since its first harvest in 2003.
