  • 2019 Child’s Play Pinot Noir Rosé

  • 2017 Child’s Play Pinot Noir

  • 2016 Child’s Play Zinfandel

    carnitas tacos, pasta with marinara sauce

  • 2019 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, crudité, fish tacos

  • 2018 Child’s Play Malbec

    The aromas are lively and inviting, with blackberry, dark currant and eucalyptus. The palate is rich, with soft tannins. Notes of boysenberry and plum persist in the finish.

    Grilled spareribs, pot roast, steak tartare.

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 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.

No on-site tastings Nov. 18 – Dec. 2

Following Governor Brown’s directive, Tendril is unable to offer on-site tastings until Dec 3.
