2023 Patelin de Tablas Blanc Boxes Released!

We are excited for our second 3L box release of the year: the 2023 Patelin de Tablas Blanc! Why a box? It's about 4 pounds lighter than 4 glass bottles, takes up less space, and stays fresh in your fridge for several weeks after you open it. Plus it carries an 84% lower carbon footprint. Hello summer! And the wine is delicious:

A plush nose equally balanced between Grenache Blanc and Viognier: apricot and ripe pear, oyster shell minerality, and a little pithy note. On the palate, white grapefruit and honeycrisp apple, anise, chamomile, orange oil, and a chalky mineral note on the finish. Lovely acids.

Because the boxes cost us less, we are able to pass along a 15% savings over the same wine in bottles. Each box is $95 list/$76 VINsider. Limit 3. Purchase yours in our online shop.

Newsweek: How Climate Change Could Affect Your Favorite Wines

Newsweek Editor, Jeff Young featured Tablas Creek Vineyard in his recent article highlighting how climate change is effecting wine regions around the world, and how the way vineyards choose to farm can be part of the solution. From the article:

Haas said those practices require attention and effort but do not necessarily add a lot of cost considering the substantial benefits for both growing grapes and selling them: Wine consumers want to know what's behind the label they're buying."I think people more and more want to know that the products that they support are being made, farmed in a way that's consistent with what they think is the right way to do things," he said. "There's not a negative side to this at all."
