Why Tendril? We believe that the “essence” of truly great wine begins and ends in the vineyard. We chose the name, Tendril, because it is an integral part of the grape vine itself. This humble yet visually appealing curly “appendage” is how the young shoots attach to the trellis and pull themselves up. Without tendrils, the shoots would simply crawl along the ground. And the grapes would perish long before ripening.
