2007 Horizontal Tasting

Feb 11th, 2017 - 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm

In 2014 we began an annual tradition of looking back a decade later at how a broad range of wines have developed. In February, we will turn our attention on the 2007 vintage. At this horizontal tasting (horizontal referring to tasting several wines from a single estate made in a single year, as opposed to vertical, which would imply a tasting of the same wine across several vintages) you can join us as we look back at 2007 with the perspective of ten years’ time. The cost is $45 for wine club members and $60 for guests and non-members. This event is sure to fill up early. To reserve, email events@tablascreek.com or call 805.237.1231 x36.

Festival Mozaic 'Notable Encounter' Concert and Dinner

Feb 25th, 2017 - 5:30 pm to 9:30 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 piano quartets by Frank Bridge, Johannes Brahms, and Gabriel Fauré. Join us Saturday, February 25th for a gourmet farm-to-table dinner (paired with Tablas Creek wine, of course) at a beautiful private home in Edna Valley.  The evening will include interactive presentation, performance, and discussion by Music Director Scott Yoo and other festival musicians, who will then join us all for dinner and to mingle.  Tickets for this once-in-a-lifetime experience are $135 per person. For more information, click here, and to buy tickets, visit festivalmozaic.com or call 805.781.3009.

Planting & Vineyard Development Seminar

Mar 4th, 2017 - 9:00 am to 12:00 pm

We're planting one of the choice sections of our new property, named "Jewel Ridge" after a long-lived and wonderful vineyard dog who some of you may remember.  We'd love you to join Winemaker Neil Collins, Viticulturist Jordan Lonborg, and our vineyard crew for some hands-on planting experience, as well as an interactive discussion about vineyard development. We'll discuss matching varietal and site as well as vine spacing, rootstock selection, and -- even though this block will be head-trained and dry-farmed -- irrigation. We’ll finish the morning with a seasonally inspired picnic lunch paired with Tablas Creek wine. The event is $25 for VINsiders and $35 for guests.

Vintage Paso- Zinfandel Weekend

Mar 17th-19th, 2017

All weekend, visit the winery 10am – 5pm to taste a selection of new releases, including our Rhone-style blends and Rhone varietal wines, and our newly-released 2016 dry rosé. Learn about our organic viticulture and our limestone soils, and meet our biodynamic sheep, llama, alpacas and donkeys! Or join us for a vineyard and cellar tour (free; daily at 10:30am and 2pm).

Saturday: Join us on Saturday for one of two interactive hikes into the vineyard (10:30am & 2:00pm) and learn about the biodynamic farming practices at Tablas Creek. Learn the benefits we see from using animals and fruit trees to increase the biodiversity of our organic vineyard, and conclude with wine tasting among the dry-farmed, head-trained vines. Guests are encouraged to wear sturdy shoes and preregister by calling 805.237.1231. Also on Saturday, enjoy live music on our patio from 12-3 with the very talented, local favorite Dorian Michael

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 gentle exit from holiday excess: chicken braised with olives & lemon, paired with Grenache Blanc

January 13, 2017
By Suphada Rom
In the course of a month and a half, I've managed to fly to New York City and back, drive up to San Francisco, drive down to Los Angeles, and fly back out for an East Coast Christmas. These moments where I see friends and familiar faces are always incredibly rewarding. Most of the time, we haven't seen in each other in months and in turn we feast like we haven't eaten in years. I know you can relate- "just one more bite!" or "well what the heck- we never see each other, let's just have that extra bottle of wine". Read More »
