Behind the Vine

The Vineyard

Tembo Pinot Noir is vineyard-sourced from Herringer Vineyards in Clarksburg, California. Pioneers of sustainable agriculture, the Herringer family believes in treating the earth responsibly. Their passions for viticulture and soil science can be seen in the quality and taste of their excellent wines!

The TEMBO Project

Tembo’s label, featuring an African Gray Elephant, isn’t just eye-catching. Tembo means “elephant” in Swahili, and the brand donates proceeds from the TEMBO project directly to the Tsavo Trust in Tsavo, Kenya. You can feel great drinking this lovely wine, especially knowing the winemakers are giving back to some of the most magnificent creatures on the planet.

Molly's Staff Thoughts - Emily's Pick

“One of our favorite, easy-drinking, summer reds for beating the heat! It is great served chilled for your camping or picnic events. Though it’s super light, Tembo offers flavors of red fruit, ripe fig and a little peppercorn. It is also sustainably and naturally produced!”
