This September, Decanter Magazine honored Jean-Pierre and Francois Perrin, Founders and Partners at Tablas Creek, as their annual "Men of the Year" for their achievements in the Rhone, Provence and California. Decanter praised them for having "dedicated themselves to elevating the reputation not only of the Perrin name, but of the Rhone and its grapes, around the world". We join the wine community in saluting this remarkable family!
In April, The Rhone Rangers recognized Tablas Creek founder Robert Haas with the 2014 Rhone Rangers Lifetime Achievement Award, given for services to the American Rhone movement. It's just the second-ever lifetime achievement award that the organization has given out. Details »
The awards ceremony featured a wonderful tribute video with reflections on Haas's career from California icons like Paul Draper, Josh Jensen, Gary Eberle and Bob Lindquist. You can watch the video on YouTube »
Each month, we taste through our current offerings and our library and select a wine to feature, based on the season and the wine's own inherent evolution. We then offer this wine at a 10% discount, above and beyond any other discounts for club membership or case purchases. This September's feature is our 2012 Cotes de Tablas. Based on Grenache from our best-ever Grenache vintage, it just received 92 points from Antonio Galloni, who called it “impeccably balanced and classy to the core.” Try it with this braised short ribs recipe.
