  • 2017 Tendril Pretender White Pinot Noir

    An exotic nose of peach, candied cherry, freshly baked lemon tart and a hint of ginger. The palate is soft and voluptuous with notes of pear, tangerine and quince. The mouthfeel is creamy and soft with an enduring finish.

    Salmon tartare, lobster salad, crab cakes, creamy mushroom soup.

  • 2017 Tendril Extrovert Pinot Noir

    An inviting nose of black cherry and licorice lead to flavors of raspberry, cherry and allspice. A surprisingly soft and approachable wine with good structure and a round finish that leaves one wanting more.

    BBQ chicken, smoked pork loin, eggplant parmigiana, salmon burgers.

  • 2011 Tendril White Label Pinot Noir

    This incredibly aromatic wine possesses an abundance of wild strawberry, cinnamon and red plums. The palate is lithe and juicy; displaying pretty raspberry, red plum leaning into prunes, tobacco, minerals and allspice with fine-grained tannins on the finish. A gentle decanting, or an hour breathing in a glass will unleash the magic.

  • 2016 Tendril TightRope Pinot Noir

    Made with partial whole-cluster Pinot Noir, the 2016 TightRope has fruit-driven aromas of black cherry, red plum, cassis with secondary aromas of dried figs and baked fruits. Prominent silky tannins pave the way for a long, pronounced finish with notes of cherry and currant. Luscious mouthfeel that craves pairing with rich proteins.

    grilled rib-eye steak, rack of lamb, mushroom fricassée

  • 2015 Tendril C~Note Pinot Noir

    Made with 100% whole cluster Pinot Noir. Aromas of earthy black cherry, cedar, blueberry compote, anise, allspice and barrel spice. The palate is rich and complex, with boysenberry syrup, dark plum, tarragon, black olive and dried flowers, with amazing length and palate presence.

    Aged manchego cheese, dry aged New York strip steak, venison stew.

  • 2015 Tendril Octave Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

    This enticing Cabernet possesses aromas of boysenberry, black cherry, cedar, allspice, vanilla, dark plum and a hint of cassis. The palate displays flavors of cassis, black cherry, sawdust, cocoa powder, dried blueberry and toast with great body and ample tannins.

    butter-seared T-Bone steak, braised pork shank, mixed berry crumble

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.

Now that the weather has improved and the world is getting vaccinated, we’d love to host you at the winery. Lots of outdoor space on our lawn to enjoy with your family…

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!
