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.
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. Although the Collector’s Edition is currently full, we plan to add some members before this fall's shipment. We will add members subject to available space, in the order in which we received the registrations.
Each year, we invite members of the waiting list to upgrade in waves. Look for the first set of emails in early July. Depending on the response we get to the first wave of invitiations, we may invite additional waiting list members. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 805.237.1231 x36.
The wines featured in the fall 2017 Collector's Edition shipment will be:
The price of the shipment will be $487.50 (a 25% discount off the list price of $645) plus applicable taxes. Shipping is included in Collector's Edition shipments.
Notes on the library wines from a June 2017 tasting are available on the Tablas Creek blog.

On Saturday, join us in the cellar at Tablas Creek for a series of interactive harvest cellar tours throughout the day, led by our Winemakers.

Tours will be offered 10:30, 12:00, 2:00 and 3:30 (limited to 20 guests per tour), are free to all guests, and reservations are highly recommended.
