Spring 2014 VINsider Shipment Tasting Party

Apr 13th, 2014

One benefit of the VINsider Wine Club is the opportunity, after each semi-annual shipment to taste the wines in the shipment, learn what new projects we've been working on, and spend some unhurried time with the Tablas Creek winemakers and management. On Sunday, April 13th we close the tasting room to the public and dedicate it to our wine club members. VINsiders reserve a specific time slot (10:30am, 12noon, 1:30pm or 3pm) and we take each group through the results of the 2013 harvest, our Biodynamic efforts, and a tasting through the wines in the spring VINsider shipment. We serve a small dish to pair with the whites and another with the reds.

Attendees also receive a day-of-the-event only extra 5% discount on additional purchases of the wines in the shipment. These shipment tastings are open to VINsider members only (complimentary) and their invited guests (2 guest max-$15/person).

2004 Horizontal Tasting

Mar 1st, 2014 - 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm

2014 is a milestone year for Tablas Creek: 25 years since we bought our property in 1989, and 20 years since we made our first wine in borrowed space in 1994.  To celebrate, we're looking back a decade to the 2004 vintage, a year which, like 2014, was the third year in a drought cycle, and which produced wines with lots of early appeal but surprising longevity.  On March 1st we'll offer the opportunity to join Tablas Creek's winemaking team to look back at 2004 with ten years' perspective.  We'll taste through ten different wines from the vintage, including those we expected to show well a decade later (including Panoplie, Syrah, Mourvedre, Esprit de Beaucastel, Roussanne and Esprit de Beaucastel Blanc) and those that have surprised us (including the Bergeron, the Rose, and the Cotes de Tablas).  To read a blog piece with our notes from our pre-tasting of every wine we made in 2004, click here

$35 for wine club members and $50 for guests and non-members (2 guest maximum).  This event is sure to fill up early.   To reserve, email events@tablascreek.com or call 805.237.1231 x30.

This event is currently SOLD OUT. Contact us to be added to the waiting list.

Winemaker Neil Collins and viticulturist Levi Glenn will lead this seminar on grape analysis, harvest and winemaking.

The day will conclude with a picnic style lunch and of course Tablas Creek wines on the patio. The event is $25 for VINsiders and $35 for guests. Contact us at 805.237.1231or events@tablascreek.com.

Cruise the Mediterranean with Tablas Creek (New Date)

Jul 21st-28th, 2013

We are thrilled to be hosting the first ever Tablas Creek-sponsored Mediterranen cruise in the summer of 2013, aboard Azamara Club Cruises' 694-passenger ship Azamara Journey.  Our seven-night cruise begins July 21st in Barcelona and includes stops in Marseilles, Sanary sur Mer, St. Tropez and Cannes before concluding in Monte Carlo. Winemaker Neil Collins will lead onboard and shore events that include a welcome reception, a multi-course winemaker dinner and a special seminar and wine tasting in which we delve into the blending of our Esprit de Beaucastel and Esprit de Beaucastel Blanc wines. The highlight of the trip will be a visit to our sister winery Château de Beaucastel in Châteauneuf-du-Pape for an estate tour with the Perrin family and a fabulous wine-paired meal prepared by their Michelin-starred chef Laurent Deconick.  Prices start at $2,196 per person.  Visit our Travel Partners' website for more information: www.foodandwinetrails.com/tablascreek2013 or call (800) 367-5348. We hope you will join us!

A brief note: the date of the cruise was originally July 3-11, 2013, but the cruise line chartered that entire ship to a private corporation and bumped all existing groups, including ours, off the itinerary.  Anyone who had reserved on that itinerary has been contacted and offered compensation in various ways, including upgraded cabins on the new itinerary.  If you have any questions, please contact us at 805.237.1231.

Winemaker and Vineyard Manager Neil Collins will lead this seminar on grape analysis, harvest and winemaking.

Grenache Grand Tour 2011

Sep 4th, 2011 - 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm

Grenache is the most widely planted grape in the southern Rhône Valley, and the second most widely planted varietal in the world. It works wonderfully in blends, and is also capable of making profound wines on its own. It drinks well young, and is typically more approachable in its youth than Syrah or Mourvèdre, yet makes wines that can age for decades. And at whatever age, in (nearly) every incarnation, Grenache is a wonderful partner with food.

This September 4th, we will look at Grenache in all its glory. Join partner Jason Haas and winemaker Neil Collins as we taste every vintage of Tablas Creek Grenache, several of our Grenache-based blends, three different appellations of Grenache-based wines from Perrin & Fils in the southern Rhône, and a Grenache-dominated Beaucastel. We’ll finish the day with a Grenche-friendly lunch prepared by chef Jeffrey Scott. This exploration of the vibrant world of Grenache is $55 for VINsiders and $70 for guests. Advance reservations are essential; contact Nicole Getty at 805.237.1231 x39 or events@tablascreek.com.

Paso Robles Wine Festival

May 21st-23rd, 2010

Begin wine festival weekend with a Friday evening winemaker dinner at the wonderful Cass House Inn & Restaurant in Cayucos, CA. The five-course, five-wine dinner is just $96, and limited to 34 reservations. The dinner is sold out, although the Cass House is maintaining a waiting list. For more information, contact Cass House at 805.995.3669.

On both Friday and Saturday afternoons, we will be pouring at the park as a part of the Paso Robles Wine Festival. Be sure to come by to check out our new releases!

Finally, on the Sunday of Wine Festival, we will be welcoming Chef Jeff Scott back to the vineyard for our now annual salmon brunch and Rosé launch. Come early on Sunday and enjoy different cured salmons, homemade bread and salads, and pair them with the newly released Rosé. We will serve the food from 10:00am until it’s gone, but we don’t expect it to last past 11:30am, so come early! This event is $20 for VINsiders and $30 for guests (the $30 includes the tasting fee for non-VINsiders). Plus, take home the 2009 Rosé at a 5% discount that day only. No reservations are necessary.
