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.
