Did you know?
Donkey & Goat is an innovator of Natural Wine in America, founded in 2004 on ecological principles driving decisions in both the vineyard and the cellar. We experimented early with PÉT NATS and Skin Ferment ‘Orange’ Wines, and these remain our staples while we continue to push the creative boundaries and break new ground.
We are Woman-Owned and Operated.
Our Winemaker & Proprietor Tracey Rogers Brandt has been making wine since 2004. We pride ourselves on being an industry leader, challenging conventions, and crafting our wines in conjunction with the changing climate. Read more about our new approach to winemaking in The New York Times.
We Are a Natural Winery First.
We work with grapes from sustainable vineyard sites across California and growers who share our ethos of responsible environmental stewardship. We were one of the first wineries in America to list our ingredients on the label.
We Believe in the Power of Community.
Our Primary concern is crafting something of meaning for our community in Berkeley, California. We do this by educating our customers on the benefits of supporting farming practices that serve the longevity of our planet. The best way to support these efforts and our small business is by becoming a member of our Wine Club!
“After two years of fires, the California winery Donkey & Goat has learned to pivot, combining appellations and even vintages to turn despair into deliciousness.”
“Donkey & Goat strives to source from vineyards whose sustainable, organic growing processes avoid chemical interference. The Brandts view their wines as an extension of those farming philosophies.”
“In the 18 years they have been producing, their priorities have shifted to include a focus on making wine while considering the impact of climate change. By joining the club, members receive discounts on wine year-round, plus exclusive invites and tastings”
