Tendril Cellars

130 West Monroe Street Carlton Oregon 97111 US

Tendril is a personal wine project by renowned winemaker, Tony Rynders.

Named for the distinctive grape tendril, this title was chosen to honor the grapevine itself. Tony believes the vineyards and grapes themselves are the foundation of great wine. He has created a unique array of wines which highlight the diversity of flavors and textures that can be achieved in Willamette Valley. 

Child’s Play is the playful younger sister of Tendril Wine Cellars. It allows Tony the opportunity to focus solely on the pleasure and fun of winemaking in the Pacific Northwest. The wines are straight-forward, fruit-focused and features one of the world’s only still Pinot Chardonnays. The labels are based off of original artwork by Madeline and Audrey Rynders, Tony and Diane’s daughters.

Our vision is “slow wine.” Everything we do is towards the best possible wines and it simply takes more time: continual interaction with vineyard, adaptive winemaking, separate small-lot fermentations, and longer aging. It is a process rather than a production, and not always successful.

We offer three different options for our wine club family, named for three of our wines: Extrovert, TightRope and C~Note.

Tendril Wine Cellars offers intimate seated tasting experiences. These are in-depth experience for all your senses tasting a minimum of five to six wines.

We are pleased to offer seatings outside on our lawn (weather permitting), on our covered terrace around our fire pits, or inside our tasting room. Reservations are highly recommended, however we welcome walk-ins when possible.

We’re happy to hear that you’re interested in purchasing our wine. We ship to adults in most U.S. states. Please select a wine to add it to your cart.

We love visitors, although it’s always best to book ahead as our winemaker-led tastings require some preparation.

We don’t like policies as much as the next person— a handshake is bond enough in many cases. But this makes our lawyer happy because it keeps us in business, focused on the business of making wine.
