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!

Save the date for the Fall VINsider Tasting Party on Sunday, October 4th. We'll close the tasting room to the public and dedicate it to our wine club members. You 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 harvest, look back with a little perspective on 2014 and 2013, and present a guided tasting through the wines in the fall VINsider shipment. 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 will receive an additional 5% discount on the wines in the shipment at this event only.
