The VINsider wine club is an opportunity to join the Tablas Creek family. Every six months, members receive a six-bottle shipment of wines chosen by our winemakers. Selections include pre-release specials, members-only cuvées, and unique single-varietal bottlings. Members receive these wines, and anything else that they order, at a members-only 20% discount (25% on orders of a case or more).
You can become a VINsider online.
Want more? Since 2003, we have been aging small libraries of our flagship Esprit de Beaucastel wines at Tablas Creek. Members of the VINsider Wine Club Collector’s Edition have exclusive access to these wines, as well as all the other benefits of being a VINsider Wine Club member.
Although the Collector’s Edition is currently full, we plan to add some members before next fall's shipment. We will add members subject to available space, in the order in which we received the registration. If you're not yet a VINsider, you can register for the Collector's Edition when you join the VINsider Wine Club. If you're currently a VINsider member, you can upgrade your membership.
Want less of a commitment? As part of the VINdependent Club, you choose your wines when you want them… the only requirement is a cumulative purchase of six bottles each calendar year. And the benefits (10% discount on all purchases, with a 20% discount on orders of a case or more, free tasting at the winery, and access to club-only wines) are great!
Join us for the Paso Robles Wine Community's biggest celebration! We'll pour Esprit de Beaucastel at Friday's Reserve Event and a range of new releases at Saturday's Grand Tasting. And all weekend we'll have special wines open at the winery and will be taking tours to visit our herd of sheep, alpacas and donkeys. Sunday 11am to 1:30pm enjoy Chef Jacob Lovejoy's small plates, free with a tasting. Details & more events »
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 »

Take a look at the seven-line entry of Frank Schoonmaker, America’s foremost wine expert and author in 1964, about terroir. His association, rather than the "somewhereness" the wine exhibits, is more of a taste of dirt, neither elegant nor elevated: "somewhat unpleasant, common, persistent”. My, how things have changed.
