California Roots

Covenant Wines East Bay WineryCovenant

The word “Covenant” connotes a strong connection between those who share a common history, experience and values. It is an age-old concept that serves as a foundation for all civilization.
Our shared cultural heritage and a love of fine wine led to the partnership that gave birth to Covenant Wines. We make wine in our urban, Berkeley winery from grapes grown in some of the finest vineyards in California and Israel, places where we enjoy a historical and personal connection to the land. As such, we strive to harness quality in the bottle that reflects the unique aspects of the land and the vines we are privileged to work with.

Our Premiere California Wine


Our flagship label, Covenant, is both the winery and the wine. It evokes the bond that exists between all who have an interest in fine, natural wine, shared beliefs and a common heritage.


Our Premiere Wine

Covenant Israel

Our remaining stock from 2013 to 2021 includes Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah from the 2019 vintage. Covenant Israel reflects our deeply felt connection to our ancient history and the wine growing terroir there.


Wine Club Only


We produce three exceptional, single-vineyard red wines for our Landsman Club: A Carneros Pinot Noir; a Sta Rita Hills Syrah, and a Dry Creek Valley (Sonoma) Cabernet Franc.


Covenant's Sister Label

Red C

RED C is the sister label to Covenant, with a red blend, Rosé, Viognier, and Sauvignon Blanc.


Celebration Wine

The Tribe

An expressive duo of Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, priced to fit any budget—and perfect for large celebrations; our COVENANT BLANC DE BLANCS.


Historical Vineyard Wine


Mensch wines are sourced from the Mettler Vineyard in Lodi, one of the oldest vineyards in California. These wines offer classic varietal typicity from one of California’s oldest wine regions and are priced for accessibility.



The Double-Edged Sword

Covenant’s small-lot brandy is reminiscent of fine Cognac. It’s distilled from Chenin Blanc and aged for two years in Covenant wine barrels before release.

An Expression of Vineyard

Covenant wines are made from exceptional vineyards that stretch from Napa Valley, Sonoma, Lake County and Lodi in Northern California, to the Santa Maria Valley and Santa Rita Hills in Southern California, to the Galilee and Golan Heights in Israel. We ferment all our wines with native yeast, and many are unfined and unfiltered. These winemaking techniques highlight what the land gives us naturally. And our wines are naturally vegan!

The Covenant Wines Difference

We pride ourselves on crafting exceptional minimal-intervention, natural, vegan wines since 2003. Nestled in the vibrant city of Berkeley, California, our winery represents the perfect marriage between modern innovation and time-honored traditions.


The essence of our distinction lies in our steadfast dedication to sourcing grapes from family-operated vineyards nestled amidst the breathtaking landscapes of Northern California. Through these treasured partnerships, we infuse each bottle with an unmistakable touch of authenticity.


At Covenant Wines, we champion a minimal intervention philosophy in our winemaking process. At its core, this approach is about letting the grapes and terroir express themselves without unnecessary interference. We start with sustainably grown, high-quality grapes, carefully harvested at peak ripeness. Our fermentation process uses only naturally occurring yeasts present on the grape skins, fostering an authentic expression of the fruit and the vineyard’s unique characteristics

Aligned with our minimal intervention ethos, we abstain from any unnatural additives and extensive filtration processes that could compromise the elegant, yet bold flavors of our wines. Instead, our dedicated winemakers diligently oversee the winemaking process, making nuanced adjustments as necessary to nurture the wine’’s natural evolution. The result is a diverse portfolio of wines that epitomize honesty, vibrancy, and a genuine reflection of their California origins. Each bottle of Covenant wine promises a distinctive drinking experience reflective of the terroir from which the wine originated. We firmly believe that this minimal intervention approach enables us to offer our customers an authentic, pure, and natural wine experience.

With every sip of Covenant Wine, you’ll encounter the unmistakable flavors, aromas, and character that define their California vineyards. Our winemaking process reveres tradition while embracing innovation.
