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.
