2005 Horizontal Tasting

Feb 28th, 2015 - 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm

Last year, we began what we hope will be an annual tradition of looking back a decade later at how a broad range of wines have developed.  This year, we turn our attention on the 2005 vintage, which was an unusual combination of wet winter (our first after three years of drought), warm summer, and exceptionally long growing season.  It produced wines with substantial tannins and lots of fruit: a big, personality-filled vintage which has proven to age in a fascinating way.  At this horizontal tasting (horizontal referring to tasting several wines from a single estate made in a single year, vs. vertical, which would imply a tasting of the same wine across several vintages) we'll offer the opportunity to join Tablas Creek's winemaking team to look back at 2005 with the perspective of ten years' time.  For a preview, check out our notes on the blog from the 2005 retrospective preview we did in early January.

$45 for wine club members and $60 for guests and non-members (2 guest maximum).  This event is sure to fill up early.  To reserve, email events@tablascreek.com or call 805.237.1231 x30.

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.

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

Just after Christmas, Jason and I had the fun and honor to be invited to pour Tablas Creek for guests at the last 49ers game of the season. The sparkling new Levi's Stadium has built-in wine bars incorporated into their club boxes, and the team invites eight wineries each week to show their wines to the fans sitting in that section.
