Esprit de Tablas/Beaucastel Vertical Tasting

Aug 27th, 2017, 10:30 am to 1:30 pm
One of the highlights of our year is the day when we taste back through all the back vintages of the red Esprit de Beaucastel/Tablas. (We’ve written up the results of these tastings for our blog most recently in 2014) We are excited to open up this opportunity to our fans. Taste eight vintages of Esprit de Beaucastel and Esprit de Tablas, from our first-ever 2000 to our newly-bottled 2015, and discuss the wine's development over time. We'll conclude the event with a lunch, during which we'll share another recent Esprit vintage.

Seats at this unique opportunity are $80 for VINsiders and $105 for guests, and the event will be limited to 75 people. To reserve, contact our events team at events@tablascreek.com or 805.237.1231 x236.

43" Of Rain: The Good, The Bad, and What It Means for the 2017 Vintage

June 15, 2017
By Jordan Lonborg
As of now I am sure you are all aware of the phenomenal winter we experienced in California. The snow pack in the Sierras is record setting. Lakes and reservoirs are at capacity in the northern two-thirds of the state. Mammoth Mountain is expecting to be open through July (and possibly the entire year). Lastly, our beloved Senior Assistant Winemaker, Chelsea Franchi, will reach her personal goal of skiing 40 days this season (you read that right) even as a weekend warrior. Read More »
