Region: El Dolrado, California, United States
Grape varieties: 100% Roussanne
Beyond its bright notes of mandarins, dried apricots, and white peaches, Stone Crusher also flaunts serious tannins and hefty structure. The wine is satisfyingly dry and elegant without compromising its fruit-forward aromatics. Pay closer attention and you’ll notice subtle notes of white tea and orange blossoms before a long finish. Pairs lip-smackingly well with honey-mustard pork chops.

About Donkey & Goat Winery
From the winery:
Donkey & Goat Winery is owned and operated by Jared and Tracey Brandt in Berkeley, California. We 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.
Our 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 sulfur. Sulfur is a contentious issue in the natural wine world. We have made wines with zero sulfur added but in general, we do use minimum effective sulfur. Or we use as little as possible and our levels going into the bottle fall within the predominant guideline for natural wines in Europe. Our wines are bottled without stabilization, fining, or filtration. While not required, we include our ingredient list on our label which is remarkably short: grapes and minimal sulfur. We have made our wines in this manner since we created Donkey & Goat in 2004 and will continue to do so until we stop.
