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).
Want more? Since 2003, we have been aging small libraries of our flagship Esprit de Tablas/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!
You're invited to join us for a weekend-long Wine Festival celebration Friday, May 20th through Sunday, May 22nd. Friday, we're pouring at the RESERVE event from 4:00-6:30 then hosting a winemaker dinner at Bistro Laurent with wines from Beaucastel and Tablas Creek at 7:00. On Saturday at the Paso Robles downtown park we'll be joining the Paso Robles wine community for the Grand Tasting from 12:00 to 4:00. Sunday at the vineyard we'll have "brunch style" bites starting at 10am and live music with Shawn Clark Family Band from 12:00-3pm.
We were proud to learn that Tablas Creek Partner/GM Jason Haas was voted by his peers the 2015 Paso Robles Wine Industry Person of the Year. His father, our founder Robert Haas, wrote this appreciation on our blog.

Think of each plant that's growing in a given plot of land as like a wick, with its roots delving into the soil for available moisture. If we had overabundant water, we might want to leave some surface weeds to keep levels more reasonable. Instead, in our California climate, eliminating competition from grasses and other surface plants is an essential part of our ability to dry farm. Tilling in the cover crop also allows the insects and microorganisms in the soil to start breaking down the surface biomass accumulated during the winter growth into nutrients that the vines will draw from in the coming months. Finally, the loosening of the soil creates an insulating layer at the surface that helps conserve the water deeper down. Read More »
