Tablas Creek Vineyard named #1 Winery in the Daily Meal's 2015 list of America's Best Wineries

We were honored and humbled to learn that The Daily Meal placed Tablas Creek at #1 on its list of 101 Best Wineries in America for 2015 among an impressive collection of exemplary producers. They called us "a leader in the use of Rhône varietals in the Paso Robles region, a leader in the fight for approval of 11 sub-districts in the area, and a leader in advancing sustainable and biodynamic vineyard practices".  Wineries were selected based on input from a panel of sommeliers, wine writers, chefs and restaurateurs for "what gets put into the bottle" but also considering factors such as innovation, leadership in their region, and value. Full list of recent press »

Harvest 2016 Begins!

August 18, 2016
By Jordan Lonborg
The wine grape harvest of 2016 has begun. Early this morning, our first Viognier pick kicked off our estate harvest at Tablas Creek. Our first fruit (also Viognier, from Adelaida Cellars) for the Patelin program came in yesterday. Next week, we expect to bring in more Patelin Viognier from one of Derby's vineyards, Pinot Noir from the Bob Haas's vineyard for our Full Circle Pinot, and some Syrah from Estrella Vineyard for Patelin red. At this stage, we're sampling fruit on a daily basis from several Patelin vineyards and multiple blocks at Tablas Creek to stay ahead of the ripening curve.
