From the Grower
"This year marks Tracey’s daughter Isabel’s 18th birthday and our 18th vintage making her eponymous rosé. Our longest running wine hails from the historic Gibson Ranch in the Mcdowell Valley. Our block dates back to the late 1800’s and is home to the oldest planting of Grenache Gris in the United States. We foot stomp the grapes and leave them to soak for a few hours before pressing to enhance the aromatics and capture the perfect pink hue. Strawberries and passionfruit and tangerine! Oh my! Isabel’s is fresh and juicy like a homegrown clementine with undercurrents of white peach and rainier cherries. If kisses were a color, it might resemble a fresh bottle of Isabel’s. Pair with easy picnic sandwiches and juicy strawberries, but only with excellent company."

Additional Information

First planted in the 1890's these dry-farmed, head-trained vines are some of the oldest plantings of grenache in the state. We bring the grapes in foot tread, and let them sit for 6+ hours before pressing to extract more flavor and body.
Donkey & Goat was founded in 2004 on ecological principles driving decisions in both the vineyard and the cellar, which was quite a few years before the term Natural Wine was coined in America! Known for being pioneers and one of the first to list ingredients on the label, our wines are handcrafted at our Berkeley winery from organic and biodynamically farmed vineyards in the Sierra Nevada, Mendocino County and Napa Valley. We follow the same ethos in making the wines resulting in wines that are vibrant, alive, and best enjoyed around a table full of food circled with family and friends.
