VINsider Shipment Tasting Party

Oct 5th, 2014 - 10:30 am to 4:30 pm

Twice a year, immediately after each VINsider club shipment, we close our tasting room to the public and dedicate it to our wine club members. This fall's event will be Sunday, October 5th.  VINsiders can reserve one of four visit times (10:30am, 12noon, 1:30pm, or 3pm) and we will take each group through the progress of the 2014 harvest, look back with a little perspective on 2013 and 2012, and taste through the wines in the fall VINsider shipment, including the new 2012 Esprit de Tablas and 2012 Esprit de Tablas Blanc. We will serve small bites to pair with the wines.
 
This tasting is open only to VINsiders (complimentary) and their invited guests (up to 4 guests - $15/person). Attendees receive an additional 5% discount on the wines in the shipment at this event only. Contact us at 805.237.1231 x30 or events@tablascreek.com for reservations or more information.

Kick off the festival Friday night with us at the Cass House Inn for a five-course, five-wine dinner.

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 have exclusive booking rights to this ship until July 2014, and I 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!
