Tendril Cellars

3500 Northwest Bridge Farmer Road Gaston Oregon 97119 US

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

An annual and all-encompassing pursuit, the name Tendril honors the grapevine, the foundation for all truly great wine. Driven by the desire to provide a unique experience, Rynders created his signature five-course “meal” of Pinot Noir to show the impressive range of Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Together with Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, Tendril represents Rynders’s résumé in liquid form.

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.

Join us for one of the region’s only winemaker-led, seated progressive tastings complimented by appetizing offerings from Child’s Play, Tendril’s playful younger sister.

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 an 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 tasting experiences by appointment only. Our seated tastings are always led by one of our winemakers— they are an in-depth experience for all your senses tasting at minimum six wines.

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.

Need a Tech Sheet, a photo, a label or all of the above? Well then, visit our Trade & Media resource to get everything you need.

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.

We are responding in these unprecedented times…

Following Governor Brown’s directive Tendril will be postponing the opening of our new tasting room in Carlton until further notice. Unfortunately the directive also prohibits private tastings in our barrel room. The health and safety of our guests and employees are paramount and we look forward to welcoming you as soon as possible.

In these challenging times, we share the importance of enjoying good food and wine with one’s family. As we are all in this together, Tendril would like to be part of your family meals so we are extending our industry discount of 30% to purchases of new releases through April 30. This discount is in addition to our club members’ existing discounts.

Are you an EXTROVERT and feeling the strain of social distancing? Are you a PRETENDER and want to imagine you’re among friends in the garden of our new tasting room? Walking a TIGHTROPE as you simultaneously work from home and watch your CHILD’S PLAY?  We are now offering complimentary delivery to your doorstep within the Portland area within 48 hours with the purchase of 6+ bottles.

We can also arrange a pickup at the doorstep of our Carlton winery and through standard shipping to select states. Please email us at [email protected] to place your order and someone will promptly contact you.

From our family to yours, stay clean and stay safe.
