We begin each year by looking back with a decade's perspective at how a broad range of wines from the vintage ten years earlier have developed. This February, we will turn our attention on the powerful 2009 vintage, concentrated by a combination of three years of drought and some of the most serious spring frosts we've ever seen. 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 open 10 different wines from 2009, including the 2009 Esprit de Beaucastel Blanc, 2009 Esprit de Beaucastel, and 2009 Panoplie. The cost is $60 for wine club members and $75 for guests and non-members. This event is sure to fill up early. To reserve, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 805.237.1231 x236.
Tablas Creek will join the 50+ members of the Paso Robles Chapter of the Rhone Rangers for the 2019 Paso Robles Rhone Rangers Experience.

The day's events will take place at the beautiful Rava Winery, on Creston Road about 5 miles east of Paso Robles. Tickets for the seminar and lunch are just $95, and seminar/lunch attendees will receive free entry into the Grand Tasting. Tickets for the Grand Tasting are just $45, and free to qualified trade and media (advance registration is required). For more information or to purchase tickets, click here.
We are proud each year to sponsor Festival Mozaic, which brings orchestral and chamber music to the Central Coast each summer and in two "Wintermezzo" weekends in November and February. One of our favorite opportunities that the festival offers is a series called Notable Encounters: intimate concerts and discussions paired with gourmet food and great wines in wonderful venues.
This year, we're sponsoring a weekend of chamber music focusing on German composer Felix Mendelssohn. Join us Saturday, February 23th for a gourmet farm-to-table dinner (paired with Tablas Creek wine, of course) prepared by Field to Table Catering at a private home in Varian Ranch, outside Arroyo Grande.
The evening will also include an interactive presentation, performance, and discussion by Music Director Scott Yoo and other festival musicians, who will then join us all for dinner and to mingle. For more information or to buy tickets, visit festivalmozaic.com or call 805.781.3009.
We’re excited to be returning to the Mediterranean in the summer of 2019 to host a Mediterranean cruise aboard the wonderful Oceania ship Sirena. Executive Winemaker Neil Collins, with his wife Marci, and Assistant Winemaker Craig Hamm, with his partner Annika, will host this 13-day experience that begins June 16th with a pre-cruise program in Avignon (including a behind-the-scenes visit to Chateau de Beaucastel and the Perrins' new properties in Gigondas, with a gourmet lunch prepared by Beaucastel’s Michelin-starred chef Laurent Deconick) before embarking in Monte Carlo on June 18th. The cruise will continue down the Italian coast, make stops in Corsica and Sardinia, cross the Mediterranean and proceed up the Spanish coast, disembarking in Barcelona on June 28th.
Throughout the trip, we will be offering Tablas Creek and Famille Perrin wines with meals, exploring connections with local food and wine culture, and sharing our perspectives and experiences.
Our travel partner Food & Wine Trails makes sure that the shore excursions are memorable and the food and amenities are top notch. The itinerary and event details are at foodandwinetrails.com/tablascreek2019.
