Our grapevine material has been selected by Château de Beaucastel and imported from France beginning in March of 1990. It has passed through a 3-year USDA certification program, and was certified virus free upon its release. Vines were subsequently propagated by us at Tablas Creek Vineyard.
In order to simulate the diversity of an established French vineyard, we imported multiple clones of our chosen varietals, where available, and we recommend that growers consider an selection of clones in their chosen varietals
Tablas Creek partners with NovaVine Nursery of Santa Rosa, California to enable customers to purchase grafted vines using Tablas Creek vinifera material. We offer for purchase a selection of TRUWOOD™ Vinifera budwood (subject to the availability of material) through NovaVine.
NovaVine was established in 1996 to fulfill the industry's need for high quality sources of both standard California selections and unique European clones. They use ecologically responsible growing practices, and produce vines of consistent high quality, health, and vigor.

** Tablas Creek has brought the seven remaining Châteauneuf-du-Pape grapes into quarantine. These cuttings are currently undergoing testing at U.C. Davis. We expect to have the first of these available for propagation and sale in 2012.

In May, we're featuring our 2011 Cotes de Tablas Blanc at a 10% discount. In 2011, our Viognier crop was cut by 80% due to spring frost, leaving a tiny, intense yield of less than one-half a ton per acre. The resulting wine is rich and tropical, with stone fruits and honey, but at the same time firmly dry, with a very long, saline & mineral finish. Details »

We'd love to make the 2013 awards a three-peat, and look back at nine favorite posts of the last year. More »
