VINsider Shipment Tasting Party

Oct 5th, 2014 - 10:30 am to 4:30 pm

Twice a year, immediately after each VINsider club shipment, we close our tasting room to the public and dedicate it to our wine club members. This fall's event will be Sunday, October 5th.  VINsiders can reserve one of four visit times (10:30am, 12noon, 1:30pm, or 3pm) and we will take each group through the progress of the 2014 harvest, look back with a little perspective on 2013 and 2012, and taste through the wines in the fall VINsider shipment, including the new 2012 Esprit de Tablas and 2012 Esprit de Tablas Blanc. We will serve small bites to pair with the wines.
 
This tasting is open only to VINsiders (complimentary) and their invited guests (up to 2 guests - $15/person). Attendees receive an additional 5% discount on the wines in the shipment at this event only. Contact us at 805.237.1231 x30 or events@tablascreek.com for reservations or more information.

Festival Mozaic "Notable Encounter" Dinner in Avila Beach

Nov 15th, 2014 - 5:30 pm to 9:00 pm

We are proud each year to sponsor Festival Mozaic, which brings orchestral and chamber music to the Central Coast each summer and in two "Wintermezzo" weekends in November and February. One of the particularly appealing opportunities that the festival offers is a series called Notable Encounters: intimate concerts and discussions paired with gourmet food and great wines in wonderful venues. This year, we're sponsoring a weekend of chamber music focusing on string quartets by Mozart and Shostakovich. Join us Saturday, November 15th for a three-course dinner (paired with Tablas Creek wine, of course) at a beautiful private home in Avila Beach, including an hour-long interactice presentation and performance by Music Director Scott Yoo and the chance to learn from and mingle with the festival musicians.  Tickets for this once-in-a-lifetime experience are $125 per person. For more information, or to buy tickets, visit Festival Mozaic at festivalmozaic.com/ned/ or call 805.781.3009.

En Primeur Tasting and Futures Offering

Dec 6th, 2014 - 10:30 am to 3:30 pm

Offering wine en primeur is a time-honored French tradition most often associated with first-growth Bordeaux estates. In outstanding vintages, valued customers are offered the opportunity to secure a limited quantity of sought-after wines at a special price in advance of bottling and subsequent general release.

On December 6th, all VINsiders are invited to join Tablas Creek's owners and winemakers for our 10th annual barrel tasting and sale en primeur of Tablas Creek's top red wines from the remarkable 2013 vintage.  Register for one of two sessions (10:30am or 1:30pm), at which we will taste the 2013 Esprit de Tablas and 2013 Panoplie, discuss the vintage, and enjoy a seasonal dish created to pair with the wines. The $30 cost to attend the event is refundable on any en primeur purchase.

Whether or not they attend the tasting, VINsiders may order futures at the exclusive 30% discount off eventual release price. VINsiders should look for an invitation to the futures tasting and en primeur offering in the mail in early November. 

Rhone River Cruise with Tablas Creek

Aug 2nd-9th, 2015

We’re excited to offer a return to the Mediterranean in the summer of 2015.
