Spring 2017 VINsider Shipment Tasting Party

Apr 2nd, 2017

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. The spring tasting party is also one of just two times each year we open the Panoplie!  On Sunday, April 2nd we will be closing the tasting room to the public and dedicating it to our wine club members. VINsiders should reserve a specific time slot (10:30am, 12noon, 1:30pm or 3pm) and we will take each group through the results of the 2016 harvest, our Biodynamic efforts, and a guided tasting through the wines in the spring VINsider shipment. We will 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).
Contact us at 805.237.1231 x36 or email events@tablascreek.com to reserve a time slot. 

Annual Blending Seminar

Apr 22nd, 2017 - 10:00 am to 1:00 pm

Hundreds of you have joined us for one of our annual blending seminars over the years. If you haven’t yet, let this be the year. Partner Jason Haas and winemaker Neil Collins will lead a barrel tasting of the individual varietals and will discuss how we turn roughly one hundred components into the blends and varieties we make each year. Then, you will be set loose with graduated cylinders to produce your own blends. This event is extremely popular and sells out quickly. The cost is $45 for VINsiders and $60 for guests (2 guest maximum). Space is limited and reservations are required. To reserve, contact us at events@tablascreek.com or 805.237.1231 x36.

Rhone River Cruise with Tablas Creek

Jul 2nd-9th, 2017

We’re excited to be returning to the Mediterranean in the summer of 2017 to host a Rhone River cruise aboard the wonderful Uniworld ship S.S. Catherine. Partner Jason Haas, with his wife Meghan, and Executive Winemaker Neil Collins, with his wife Marci, will host this 8-day cruise from Avignon to Lyon, including visits to Tarascon, Viviers, Tain L'Hermitage, and Macon [full itinerary].

At each stop, there will be daily shore tours, including a behind-the-scenes visit to Chateau de Beaucastel and the Perrins' new properties in Gigondas, with a gourmet lunch prepared by Beaucastel’s Michelin-starred chef Laurent Deconick.

We have reserved the entire ship for our group at a special rate, but only until January 31, 2017 when prices will go up (if there are even any cabins left). Cabins start at $4153 per person.  For all the details, and to book, visit our travel partners' Web site at foodandwinetrails.com/tablascreek2017 or call Food & Wine Trails at (800) 367-5348.

A Rebuttal: Drink what you like. And celebrate wine's diversity.

March 20, 2017
It's rare enough that the mass media writes about wine that I was pleased to see an opinion piece on wine in this Sunday's New York Times, called "Ignore the Snobs, Drink the Cheap, Delicious Wine". In the piece, author Bianca Bosker begins with a visit to Treasury Wine Estates. One of the world's largest wine companies, Treasury is best known for owning flagship brands like Penfold's, Stag's Leap, Lindeman's, Beringer, and Chateau St. Jean, but those are just a few of the wines they make. Between all their brands, according to their Web site, they sold over 30 million cases of wine in 2015 Read More »
