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. We hope that you will join us!

One of the highlights of our year is the day when we get together with our winemaking team to taste back through all the back vintages of the red Esprit de Beaucastel/Tablas. (We’ve written up the results of these tastings for our blog four times, most recently in 2014, but also in 2010in 2009, and in 2006.) We are excited to open up this opportunity to our fans. We will taste eight vintages of Esprit de Beaucastel and Esprit de Tablas, from our first-ever 2000 to our newly-bottled 2015, and discuss the wine's development over time. We'll conclude the event with a lunch, during which we'll share another recent Esprit vintage.

Seats at this unique opportunity are $80 for VINsiders and $105 for guests, and the event will be limited to 75 people. To reserve, contact our events team at events@tablascreek.com or 805.237.1231 x236.

By Jordan Lonborg

Lakes and reservoirs are at capacity in the northern two-thirds of the state. Mammoth Mountain is expecting to be open through July (and possibly the entire year). Lastly, our beloved Senior Assistant Winemaker, Chelsea Franchi, will reach her personal goal of skiing 40 days this season (you read that right) even as a weekend warrior. Read More »
