Donkey & Goat

Stone Crusher 2018

A wonderfully complex orange wine with dried stone fruit, orange peel, and some tannin to create a structural wine that can stand up to some hefty pairings. The aromatics are balanced by the dry structure, allowing a refreshing feeling after every sip!

Pairing Suggestions: Roasted White Meats, Cheese Plate, Barbecue

California, USA

Type: Orange | Vintage: 2018 | Sulfites: Minimal | Alcohol: 11.2% | Varietal: Roussanne | Production: Organic | Style:  Food, Nerdy, Hype Juice


Donkey & Goat Winery is owned and operated by Jared & Tracey Brandt in Berkeley, California. They make “natural wines” which is a term that covers both the vineyard and the cellar. That is what distinguishes natural wine– the extension of natural farming philosophies that drive the practices for sustainable, natural & biodynamic farming into the cellar. Their 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. They have made wines with zero sulphur added but in general they do use minimum effective sulphur. Or they use as little as possible and their levels going into bottle fall within the predominant guideline for natural wines in Europe. Their wines are bottled without stabilization, fining or filtration. While not required, they include the ingredient list on their label which is remarkably short: grapes and minimal sulphur. They have made their wines in this manner since they created Donkey & Goat in 2004 and will continue to do so until they stop.
