For Steve and Jill Matthiasson, winemaking is a natural extension of farming, and most of their grapes come from the seven vineyards that the winery farms in Napa and Sonoma. They love to explore classical expressions of different varieties, some well-known like Chardonnay or Cabernet Sauvignon, and some rare like Ribolla Gialla or Refosco Dal Peduncula Rosso.
In all cases, the winemakers try to respect the purity of the variety and the individuality of the site. The resulting wines are refreshing, complement food, and are moderate in alcohol. By using site-specific farming methods to grow intense fruit, coupled with careful restraint in the cellar, Tendu strives to produce wines that are full flavored but impeccably balanced.
