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.
We will be inviting members of the waiting list to upgrade in waves. We sent out the first wave on Thursday, June 23rd. If you are in that first wave of members, please reply to the links in the email you received. If you are on the waiting list and did not receive an email, we may be sending out additional invitations on June 30th. If you have any questions, please email email@example.com or call 805.237.1231 x36.
The wines featured in the fall 2016 Collector's Edition shipment will be:
The price of the shipment is $468.75 (a 25% discount off the list price of $625) plus applicable taxes. Shipping is included.
Notes on the library wines from a June 2016 tasting are available on the Tablas Creek blog.

You may know Mourvèdre best as the backbone varietal for our flagship Esprit de Tablas and our elite blend Panoplie. But we’ve bottled it on its own most years since 2003. Join us Saturday, July 16th for a vertical tasting of every vintage of our varietal Mourvèdre, from that first 2003 to the newly-bottled 2014. $50 for wine club members; $65 for non-members and guests. To reserve, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 805.237.1231 ext 36. For a preview, check out our notes from a 2014 Mourvèdre retrospective. Details & more events »

Each June, I have the pleasure of tasting through library vintages of our Esprit de Beaucastel and Esprit de Beaucastel Blanc to choose the wines for the upcoming VINsider Wine Club Collector's Edition shipment. We created the Collector's Edition version of our VINsider Wine Club back in 2009 to give our biggest fans a chance to both see what our flagship wines were like aged in perfect conditions. Members also get a slightly larger allocation of the current release of Esprits to track as they evolove. This club gives us a chance show off our wines' ageworthiness, and it's been a great success, generating a waiting list each year since we started it. Read More »
