We believe that the “essence” of truly great wine begins and ends in the vineyard. We chose the name, Tendril, because it is an integral part of the grape vine itself. This humble yet visually appealing curly “appendage” is how the young shoots attach to the trellis and pull themselves up. Without tendrils, the shoots would simply crawl along the ground. And the grapes would perish long before ripening.
Tendril Wine Cellars is home to one of the region’s only winemaker-led, seated progressive tastings complimented by appetizing offerings from Child’s Play, Tendril’s playful younger sister. An annual and all-encompassing pursuit, the name Tendril honors the grapevine, the foundation for all truly great wine.
