In short, Jared and Tracey Brandt of Donkey and Goat Winery are pioneers of the natural winemaking movement in California. After spending time in France back in 2002 with noteworthy winemaker Eric Texier, they returned home to Cali, inspired and ready to apply their inspirations in winemaking and marketing. Using a completely natural process in the cellar and vineyards; the couple does not fine or filter the wines, and just a small amount of sulfur is used at bottling. Their winemaking headquarters are located in Berkeley where they can implement their hands-on approach; they source grapes from Sierra Nevada, Mendocino, and Napa.
Glou is the unsophisticated French term for “glug glug” and this bottle is just that. Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre coferment together in the classic GSM; then Vementino comes into play with the marc (skin, pulp, seeds), while the wine is finished with Marsanne and more Grenache at the end for more lift and vibrance. The wine is raised in concrete. Highly crushable and juicy with bright coral tones, this wine is ready to consume right now!
