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.

** In 2003, Tablas Creek brought the seven remaining Châteauneuf-du-Pape grapes into quarantine. These cuttings have been undergoing testing and certification at U.C. Davis. The first of these was released in 2010, and we expect to have the full collection available for propagation by 2016.

One of the world's largest wine companies, Treasury is best known for owning flagship brands like Penfold's, Stag's Leap, Lindeman's, Beringer, and Chateau St. Jean, but those are just a few of the wines they make. Between all their brands, according to their Web site, they sold over 30 million cases of wine in 2015 Read More »
