Tasting with Donkey & Goat in Oakland

  • The Barrel Room 5330 College Avenue Oakland, CA, 94618 United States (map)

Taste three Wines for $20

Join us for an unforgettable tasting with Jared & Tracey Brandt of Donkey & Goat Winery based in Berkeley. They make “natural wines” which is a term that covers both the vineyard and the cellar. 

‘Our wines are made from sustainably (or more) farmed vineyards in the Sierra Nevada, Mendocino and Napa. In the cellar nothing is removed and nothing is added save minimal effective sulphur. Sulphur is a contentious issue in the natural wine world. We have made wines with zero sulphur added but in general we do use minimum effective sulphur. Or we use as little as possible and our levels going into bottle fall within the predominant guideline for natural wines in Europe. Our wines are bottled without stabilization, fining or filtration. While not required, we include our ingredient list on our label which is remarkably short: grapes and minimal sulphur. We have made our wines in this manner since we created Donkey & Goat in 2004 and will continue to do so until we stop.’
