    Grilled fish, Niçoise salad, chicken salad sandwich, couscous, grilled cauliflower, Camembert.

  • NV Child’s Play Blanc de Blancs

    This crisp, dry, refreshing sparkler is made from grapes that are hand-harvested and whole-cluster pressed. Aromas of green apple, chamomile, ginger and freshly baked croissant preview flavors of apple, grapefruit and almonds.

    Potato chips (even better with fish roe and crème fraiche), mac & cheese, fried chicken

  • 2022 Child’s Play Pinot Noir

    Aromas of black cherry, cedar and plum jump out of the glass. The palate is full of juicy berries and eucalyptus and features very smooth tannins and a surprisingly long finish.

    Salmon tacos, cheeseburgers, pasta with tomato and basil

  • 2022 Child’s Play Chardonnay

    Uplifting aromas of lime, pineapple and apple blossom. The palate is soft, with bright citrus notes giving way to ripe peaches and pears. Lovely persistent finish that dances lightly around the mouth.

    Linguini with white clam sauce, fish tacos, falafel and hummus

  • 2021 Child’s Play Malbec

    The aromas are fruit-driven with marionberry and dark plum. The palate is rich and approachable, with graceful tannins and notes of ripe blackberry, and cassis.

    Steak tacos, aged cheddar, blue cheese, smoked chicken and pork tenderloin.

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.
