Spring 2015 VINsider Shipment Tasting Party

Apr 19th, 2015

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 19th 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 2014 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).

Blending Seminar

May 2nd, 2015 - 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 (both reds and whites), 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. Contact us at events@tablascreek.com or 805.237.1231 x30.

Paso Robles Wine Festival Weekend

For tickets and more information click here.

We'll also be a part of a delicious 4-course, 4-wine Winemaker Dinner at Thomas Hill Organics paired with the wines of Tablas Creek Vineyard, Justin, Calcareous and Halter Ranch on Thursday, May 14th.  The dinner is $125 per person; for additional information or reservations call Thomas Hill Organics at 805.226.5888.

Finally, we invite you to come out to the vineyard on Sunday, for a tasting of our flagship wines paired with small bites prepared by Paso Robles resident and author Brigit Binns. Bridget will be on-site to sign her cookbooks and to answer your questions. Her newly released book “Eating Up the West Coast,” was the cover feature of the March issue of Sunset Magazine. Her parings will be free to VINsiders, and included with a tasting fee for others. Food pairings will begin at 11am and last until we run out. Finally, enjoy live, upbeat music on our terraced patio by the local band Bear Market Riot!
