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 open for tastings!

At long last the doors are open to our new tasting room & winery in Carlton! We have several areas inside and outdoors to host you safely and spaciously.
