Wine Clubs

VINsider Wine Club

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 learn more about the benefits of being a Tablas Creek VINsider, or view details of current and past VINsider shipments.  You can become a VINsider online.

Current members can read VINsider News & Updates or Update Member Information.

VINsider Wine Club Collector's Edition

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.

VINdependent Wine Club

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!

En Gobelet Vertical Tasting and Dry Farming Exploration

Since 2007, we have made our En Gobelet exclusively from dry-farmed, head-trained vineyard blocks. The results have been so compelling that we're planning to plant our entire new parcel -- all 55 acres -- in this style over the coming decade. Join us for this vertical tasting of every vintage of En Gobelet, from the 2007 to the newly-blended 2014. We'll also offer, before the tasting, an optional hike led by Viticulturist Levi Glenn through the rugged Scruffy Hill block from which we source most of the wine, and finish with a picnic lunch on our patio. $60 for wine club members and $75 for guests. Reservations are essential; we expect this to sell out. To reserve, email us at events@tablascreek.com or call us at 805.237.1231 ext 30.  Details & More Events »

On the Road: a Rhone Pilgrimage

June 24, 2015
By: Darren Delmore
I had the distinct pleasure of tagging along last week on a trade visit to the Perrin family's holdings in the Rhone Valley. Our odyssey began with our thirsty quintet of wine professionals packed into an undersized rental car like foie gras terrine as we traversed from Dijon to Valence. I sat shotgun with GPS in hand and snails in my belly as we watched the landscape change from the sunflowers and Charolais beef pastures of Burgundy to the lavender fields and olive groves of the Rhone.
