The shipment’s cost of $220.00, plus applicable shipping and taxes, reflects as always a 20% VINsider discount off the retail prices of the wines in the shipment.

Wine Club members are invited to join Tablas Creek's winemakers for our annual barrel tasting and sale en primeur of Tablas Creek's remarkable red wines from the outstanding 2015 vintage. Offering wine en primeur is a time-honored French tradition most often associated with first-growth Bordeaux estates. In outstanding vintages, 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.
Whether or not they attended the tasting, VINsiders may order futures through the week of December 5th at a futures-only 30% discount off release price. For a downloadable/faxable order form, click here.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 in 2015 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 2016 should upgrade their membership. We hope to be able to add members in advance of the fall 2016 shipment, and members will be added to the Collector's Edition in the order in which their requests are received.

At this horizontal tasting (horizontal referring to tasting several wines from a single estate made in a single year, as opposed to vertical, which would imply a tasting of the same wine across several vintages) you can join us as we look back at 2007 with the perspective of ten years’ time. The cost is $45 for wine club members and $60 for guests and non-members. This event is sure to fill up early. To reserve, email email@example.com or call 805.237.1231 x36.

In the course of a month and a half, I've managed to fly to New York City and back, drive up to San Francisco, drive down to Los Angeles, and fly back out for an East Coast Christmas. These moments where I see friends and familiar faces are always incredibly rewarding. Most of the time, we haven't seen in each other in months and in turn we feast like we haven't eaten in years. I know you can relate- "just one more bite!" or "well what the heck- we never see each other, let's just have that extra bottle of wine". Read More »
