Donkey & Goat Lily’s Pet Nat
Regular price $42.00
Winemaker: Jared & Tracey Brandt
Appellation: El Dorado, California
Grape Varieties: Chardonnay
Pet Nat, short for pétillant naturel, can be made from any grape variety (this one is Chardonnay) and is a simpler and ancient way to make sparkling wine. In its purest form, as ours is, the ingredients are limited to grapes (with no Sulphur added). After spontaneous fermentation begins, but before it is complete, the wine is bottled and fermentation continues, creating those delicious bubbles. Jared made our first Lily'sin 2011 and ten years later it remains our go-to wine for brunch, lunch, picnics and beach days. This wine will please many palates and is made for al fresco dining, preferably with your shoes off.
Donkey & Goat was founded in 2004 on ecological principles driving decisions in both the vineyard and the cellar which was quite a few years before the term Natural Wine was coined in America! Known for being pioneers and one of the first to list ingredients on the label, our wines are handcrafted at our Berkeley winery from organic and biodynamically farmed vineyards in the Sierra Nevada, Mendocino County, and Napa Valley. We follow the same ethos in making the wines resulting in wine that are vibrant and alive and best enjoyed around a table full of food and circled with family and friends.
