En Gobelet Vertical Tasting and Dry Farming Exploration

Jul 19th, 2015 - 9:30 am to 12:00 pm

Since 2007, we have made our En Gobelet exclusively from dry-farmed, head-trained vineyard blocks. The results have been so compelling that we're planning to plant our entire new parcel -- all 55 acres -- in this style over the coming decade. Join us for this vertical tasting of every vintage of En Gobelet, from the 2007 to the newly-blended 2014.  We'll also offer, before the tasting, an optional hike led by Viticulturist Levi Glenn through the rugged Scruffy Hill block from which we source most of the wine, and finish with a picnic lunch on our patio. $60 for wine club members and $75 for guests.  Reservations are essential; we expect this to sell out.  To reserve, email us at events@tablascreek.com or call us at 805.237.1231 ext 36.

9:30am: Optional exploration of Scruffy Hill
10:30am: Vertical tasting of En Gobelet
Lunch to follow

We have notes from a recent vertical tasting of En Gobelet as well as more information on dry-farming at Tablas Creek on the Tablas Creek Blog.

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. Founders Robert and Barbara Haas will join Winemaker Neil Collins to lead the trip, this time on an intimate river cruise up the Rhone Valley from Avignon to Lyon aboard Uniworld Boutique River Cruises’ new ship, the SS Catherine. The daily shore tours include a behind-the-scenes visit to Chateau de Beaucastel culminating in a gourmet lunch prepared by Beaucastel’s Michelin-starred chef Laurent Deconick. We still have exclusive booking rights to this ship for a few more weeks, and hope we can have a 100% Tablas Creek group.  Cabins start at $4234 per person.  For all the details, and to book, visit our travel partners' Web site at foodandwinetrails.com/tablascreek2015 or call Food & Wine Trails at (800) 367-5348. We hope that you will join us!
