We are pleased to announce the Spring 2017 VINsider Club shipment, highlighted by the 2014 Panoplie. It also includes our luscious dry Dianthus rosé, plus four small-production single-varietal bottlings. The Classic Mix is below; information on the red-only and white-only shipments is on our club shipments page.
If you need to your make any changes to your account, such as updating your shipping address (an adult signature is required) or providing a new credit card you can email your changes to firstname.lastname@example.org, call us at 805.237.1231, or update your VINsider information online.
The shipment’s cost of $213.60, plus applicable shipping and taxes, reflects as always a 20% VINsider discount off the retail prices of the wines in the shipment. If you’ve requested to pick up your shipment here at the winery, it is now available. Shipped shipments went out (unless you made other arrangements) the week of March 20th.
Each year, wine club members are invited to join Tablas Creek's winemakers for our annual barrel tasting and sale en primeur of Tablas Creek's top wines from the most recent vintage. Offering wine en primeur is a time-honored French tradition most often associated with first-growth Bordeaux estates. Valued customers are offered the opportunity to secure a limited quantity of sought-after wines at a special price in advance of bottling and subsequent general release.
On December 3rd, about 200 Tablas Creek wine club members joined Tablas Creek's winemakers at one of two sessions (10:30am or 1:30pm) to taste the 2015 Esprit de Tablas, 2015 Esprit de Tablas Blanc, and 2015 Panoplie from barrel, discuss the vintage, and enjoy a seasonal dish created to pair with the wines. The $30 cost to attend the event was refundable on any en primeur purchase.

We are excited to offer, in addition to our classic mix of red and white wines (and the occasional dry rosé) in each shipment, options for VINsider club members who prefer red-only and white-only shipments. Like our classic mix, the red-only and white-only options are selected from small-production lots, special blends, and sneak previews. Current VINsider Club members can select red-only or white-only options on the VINsider Update Form, and prospective new members can choose their preferred color mix when they register on the VINsider Sign-Up Form.
Please note that due to the limited supplies of our library wines, we cannot offer red-only or white-only options for our fall Collector's Edition shipments, although Collector's Edition members are welcome to choose red-only or white-only for their spring shipments.
If you have any questions about our different color mix options, please contact us at email@example.com or 805.237.1231 x30.
Collector’s Edition members have exclusive access to library vintages of Esprit de Beaucastel wines that we have aged in ideal conditions in our own cellars since the 2003 vintage. Members also receive an increased allocation of our newest Esprit wines. Collector's Edition details »
The Collector's Edition is full. Members who were on the waiting list for our fall 2016 offer should have received notice of whether they were upgraded or whether they remain on the waiting list. VINsiders interested in the Collector’s Edition for 2017 should upgrade their membership. We hope to be able to add members in advance of the fall 2017 shipment, and members will be added to the Collector's Edition in the order in which their requests are received.

I was struck recently by a headline posted recently by a Seattle-dwelling friend of mine: Seattle just broke a 122-year-old record for rain. The total rainfall for this famously rainy city between October 2016 and April 2017? 44.67". Here at Tablas Creek, over the same period, we've received 41.57" of rain. No, you aren't reading that wrong. The rainfall we've received this past winter would be one of the wettest winters ever recorded in Seattle. So perhaps it shouldn't be surprising that the below landscape (taken down near our creek a few months ago) could be straight out of the Pacific Northwest: Read More »
