Picpoul Blanc brings pineapple aromas and saline minerality. Picardan adds elegance while Clairette Blanche is crisp and gently citrusy. Bourboulenc provides a limestone, citrusy lift.

Wine Business Monthly: Tablas Creek Levels Up Organic Practices to Regenerative

In 2019, we began measuring the soil health on our farm by looking at soil density, active carbon, and organic matter. What started as a requirement to comply with the standards of the Regenerative Organic Alliance led to a three-year soil health trial to measure the effects of tilling on a regenerative farm.

Vine Pair Next Wave Award 2022 Tablas Creek

Tablas Creek is 2022 Winemaking Team of the Year at the VinePair Next Wave Wine Awards!

We are excited to announce that our rock star winemaking team won the 2022 VinePair Next Wave Award for Winemaking Team of the Year! From their article announcing the award:

In a decade or so, we might look back at 2022 as the year when boxed wine finally broke free from some of the stigma attached to the format and made a compelling case to the broader wine-drinking market. If indeed that proves to be true, one of the catalysts was undoubtedly the small but noteworthy venture of the winemaking team at Tablas Creek, led by executive winemaker Neil Collins and proprietor Jason Haas.
