Notes from the Producer: In 2014 we began working with the magical, biodynamic Filigreen Farm in the beautiful Anderson Valley. In addition, we purchased two Nomblot concrete tanks for fermentation vats. Together the vision of making Ramato Pinot Gris came to life! Ramato is a savory, textural experience boasting “funky” aroma and flavor. Less than a week on the skins after full destemming and then fermentation completes in neutral French oak barrels

Donkey & Goat is celebrated for being amongst a handful of pioneers in the Natural Wine community because in 2004 they were unique for their ecological principles driving decisions in both the vineyard and the cellar and ten years later for promoting transparency, being one of the first to list ingredients on their label. Founding winemakers Jared Brandt & Tracey Rogers spent a year with the inimitable Eric Texier in 2002 studying the art of crafting natural wines in the Rhone Valley before co-founding Donkey & Goat in 2004 in San Francisco.
