2006 Horizontal Tasting

Feb 20th, 2016 - 1:00 pm to 3:30 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 2006 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 2006 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 x30.

Spring 2016 VINsider Shipment Tasting Party

Apr 10th, 2016

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. The spring tasting party is also one of just two times each year we open the Panoplie!  On Sunday, April 10th we will be closing the tasting room to the public and dedicating it to our wine club members. VINsiders should reserve a specific time slot (10:30am, 12noon, 1:30pm or 3pm) and we will take each group through the results of the 2015 harvest, our Biodynamic efforts, and a guided tasting through the wines in the spring VINsider shipment. We will 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).

Annual Blending Seminar

Apr 30th, 2016 - 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 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. To reserve, contact us at events@tablascreek.com or 805.237.1231 x36.

A Valentine's Day truffle recipe... and a wine to drink them away

February 5, 2016
By: Suphada Rom
Prior to working at Tablas Creek, I spent three years working at a small French bistro that was adjacent to a chocolate shop, which was also conveniently co-owned by the owners of the restaurant (pommes frites…check! chocolates…check!). I was in heaven learning not only about our menu, but about the chocolates we produced. As I reflect on my time there, I realized wine and chocolate have really similar foundations. Read More »
