2020 Ramato Pet Nat

2020 Ramato Pet Nat

Biodynamic Bubbles from Filigreen Farm Pinot Gris

Anderson Valley

Due to limited inventory this wine is only available in our Nat Pack and Holiday Cheer Pack.

Each year we make a few limited production sparkling wines and we tend to mix it up to allow our creativity to flow and not turn Donkey & Goat into a Pet Nat winery (while it would be delicious the labor would break us as the sparkling wines are incredibly labor intensive). Ramato Pet Nat is a lip-smacking delicious, zero-zero, savory sparkling wine made from Pinot Gris grown at the magnificent, certified biodynamic Filigreen Farm. Tracey started making her “regular” Ramato Pinot Gris in 2014 (regular means no bubbles) and the first vintage of Ramato Pet Nat was 2015. Here at the winery we are all in favor of Ramato being promoted to an annual production. What do you think?!

Tasting Note:

This Sparkling Ramato is simultaneously flirtatious and complex, refreshing and hardy – and that’s why we love it. Allowing the skins to soak during fermentation has built this wine's sturdy structure. Red raspberries mix with the pithiness of rhubarb and herbs to create its unique appeal. Bone dry with fresh acidity, it is perfect as an aperitif or digestif, the bitters awakening the taste buds to enhance flavor and appetite. Or enjoy with your favorite pork roast or pumpkin curry recipes. It is also wonderful in a unique craft cocktail – design your own and leave your friends wondering what the secret ingredient is!
