Donkey & Goat Winery always likes to do something fun for their open house parties. On September 11th, get ready to check out Diamond Lil, the world’s first “bus-taurant” (it’s a 1957 Greyhound) from sommelier Kai Schoenhals and chef Daniel Isberg—it’s made from recycled materials and runs on cooking oil! They will be serving a heritage hog from Gleason Ranch, and seven newly released wines will be poured at the upcoming Fall Fête. The menu includes Gleason Ranch pork belly sliders, Gleason Ranch yellow curry goat, a market-driven vegetarian paella, potato salad, and an Asian-style slaw.
The wines include four new projects, including Donkey & Goat’s first Anderson Valley pinot from the Broken Leg Vineyard; a 100% skin fermented roussanne (Stone Crusher); a Fukuoka-style chardonnay (Untended); their first carignane; plus a reserve syrah (36 months in barrel) from Broken Leg. There will also be live music from jazz trio Michael LaMacchia 3rio. Admission includes a souvenir Riedel glass—or guests can take advantage of Donkey & Goat’s unique green promotion and BYOG (glass) to receive a $10-off voucher for any $35+ wine purchase.
