The Drinks Business: How a few changes to vineyard management could help save the planet

We were happy to be mentioned in this article highlighting the benefits of grazing in regenerative agriculture. From the article:

It’s been dubbed ‘regenerative viticulture’ and it can be practised under any farming regime to improve sub-surface microbial life, root health, and, crucially, capture carbon in large enough quantities to help offset emissions from other activities that consume this valuable element and release it as a ‘greenhouse gas’: CO2.

Owen Bargreen: "the outstanding new wines by Tablas Creek."

We were excited to find six of our newest releases rated over 90 points by Owen Bargreen.

"I loved the new 2020 Tablas Creek ‘Patelin de Tablas’ Rose (OB, 90) which is such a fantastic deal with the complexity gained at this price point. One of the great California Rose wines I have had this year, the 2020 Tablas Creek ‘Dianthus’ Rose (OB, 92) is dense and chewy with awesome range and a seriously good texture. This is a Rose to buy by the case. Here are the outstanding new wines by Tablas Creek."

Wine Enthusiast: Paso Robles’ White Wines Defy Expectations

We're happy to see Paso Robles' whites wines getting their due. This article by Wine Enthusiast opens using Tablas Creek Vineyard as an example of the diversity of white varieties emerging in the region and a quote from winemaker Neil Collins:

"'Let’s be fair,' says Neil Collins, winemaker for Tablas Creek since its inception in 1998. 'A summer evening in Paso Robles lends itself to a crisp, complex white every bit as much as it does a massive red.'"

The venerable Underground Wine Letter reviewed six new Spring 2021 releases, including the first reviews of our newly-bottled 2020 Vermentino and 2020 rosés, our 2019 Roussanne, and two of our newest red blends from 2019: Patelin de Tablas and Cotes de Tablas. From John Tilson's introduction:

as usual, the wines are stunning across the board representing Rosé in two different styles, White Wines in two distinctly different styles, and two Red Wines that are distinctive and really lovely. And from a consumer standpoint the values here are really extraordinary. With prices in a range of $25 to $40 this is a group of wines that represent the three different type of wines at prices that cannot be beat!
