The Tendu line of wines began with an exploration of sourcing organic fruit from around Napa and Sonoma. First launching as a red and white table wine, the project has evolved to varietal wines including Vermentino, Cortese, and Marato. Due to the fervent fan-base the red blend will continue to be released.
“Our second bottling of Mataro (Mourvèdre) continues to rear from the weathered, pink gravelly alluvium, very low fertility soils (Corning Series) of the Windmill Vineyard. The vineyard is located outside of Woodland (Yolo County; Dunnigan Hills AVA). It is of moderate elevation and it gets quite warm during the day. The vineyard is now certified organic (CCOF).” - Winemaker’s Note
