Winemaker's Notes:

The Thirteen Series is our proprietary southern Rhone style blend using up to thirteen of the grape varietals traditional to Chateauneuf-du-Pape, here we have blended five: 45% Grenache + 20% Syrah + 19% Mourvedre + 10% Counoise + 6% Cinsault. This is our most versatile wine that stays on our table most of the year.

About Donkey and Goat:

Donkey & Goat is a family owned and operated winery located in Berkeley California. Tracey & Jared Brandt craft their natural wines from Rhône varietals, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grown in the Anderson Valley, Mendocino Ridge and the undiscovered El Dorado appellation in the Sierra Foothills. Tracey & Jared trained in France, under Éric Texier, an up and coming Rhône winemaker who taught them the art and craft of making wines that speak to the soul about the earth from which they originate. Their maverick winemaking has helped pave the way for the natural wine movement.

They make their wines for the table not the cocktail glass. They make Rhône varietals in both colors plus an atypical Chardonnay and a Pinot Noir true to the varietals nature, striving to make wine as naturally as possible and done so since day one.
