We are excited for the Fall 2014 VINsider Club shipment, highlighted by the 2012 Esprit de Tablas and 2012 Esprit de Tablas Blanc. The Classic Mix is below; for information on the red-only and white-only shipments, click here:
The Fall 2014 shipment will ship out the week of September 22nd. Will-call members will be able to pick-up their shipments here at the winery beginning Friday, September 19th.
Now is the time to update your billing or shipping information to ensure on-time delivery of your shipment. You may use our VINsider Update Form, or contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 805.237.1231 x30.
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.
We are excited to now 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.
Twice a year, immediately after each VINsider club shipment, we close our tasting room to the public and dedicate it to our wine club members. This fall's event will be Sunday, October 5th. VINsiders can reserve one of four visit times (10:30am, 12noon, 1:30pm, or 3pm) and we will take each group through the progress of the 2014 harvest, look back with a little perspective on 2013 and 2012, and taste through the wines in the fall VINsider shipment, including the new 2012 Esprit de Tablas and 2012 Esprit de Tablas Blanc. We will serve small bites to pair with the wines.
This tasting is open only to VINsiders (complimentary) and their invited guests (up to 4 guests - $15/person). Attendees receive an additional 5% discount on the wines in the shipment at this event only. Contact us at 805.237.1231 x30 or firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your preferred time slot or more information. Other upcoming events »

The Collector's Edition is full for 2014. Members who were on the waiting list have received notice of whether they were upgraded or whether they remain on the waiting list. VINsiders interested in the Collector’s Edition for 2015 should upgrade their membership. We hope to be able to add members in advance of the fall 2015 shipment, and members will be added to the Collector's Edition in the order in which their requests are received.
On December 6th, all VINsiders are invited to join Tablas Creek's owners and winemakers for our 10th annual En Primeur Tasting and Futures Offering.

The grapes are all off the vines. The days are shorter, with a lower sun angle....on Saturday, we actually got a few sprinkles. Next weekend we're forecast to see measurable precipitation. It's all hopeful for a vineyard (and a region) struggling under three years of drought. Read More »
