Food & Wine: How To Pair Wines with Party Snacks

Our Patelin de Tablas made an appearance in Food & Wine's Holiday Entertaining issue, where Wanda Mann recommends it as a suggested pairing for baby lamb chops. We approve! On the wine, she comments:

Patelin combines the Rhône varieties Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Counoise, and Terret Noir to create a blend with sultry dark fruit flavors and pops of spice.

Wine Enthusiast Top 100 of 2023

2021 Esprit de Tablas Blanc: #51 on Wine Enthusiast's Top 100 of 2023

We were excited to learn that our 2021 Esprit de Tablas Blanc was named #51 on Wine Enthusiast's "Top 100 wines of 2023"! This year, Wine Enthusiast editors blind-tasted more than 23,000 bottles and select their Top 100. Their criteria? These were "not simply the highest scoring bottles, nor are they the most expensive—these are wines that opened our reviewers’ eyes and stimulated their imaginations."

Of the 2021 Esprit Blanc, they say:

As the importer of so many Rhône varieties, it's no surprise that Tablas Creek manages blends like few other domestic producers. This combination of 70% Roussanne, 17% Picpoul Blanc, 10% Grenache, 2% Bourboulenc and 1% Clairette Blanche shows clean nectarine and apricot aromas on the nose, with a light nuttiness. The palate's chalky texture offers creamy flavors of cashew milk and apple blossoms.

California Now Podcast

Proprietor Jason Haas shares his Paso Robles recommendations on California Now Podcast

Proprietor Jason Haas is this week's guest on Visit California's bi-weekly podcast, California Now. Jason shares the origin of Tablas Creek, the three factors that drew us to Paso Robles, the importation of our original clones from our partners at Chateau de Beaucastel, and our move from organic to biodynamic to Regenerative Organic.⁠

Our favorite part of this segment comes when host Soterios Johnson asks Jason about some of his favorite spots on the Central Coast. Jason names a baker's dozen of his favorite local wineries, his three favorite local beaches, three great downtown Paso Robles hotels, four local restaurants, and even his two favorite farmers' markets. Listen and then plan your next trip!⁠

Wine Enthusiast: The Best Wineries (and More) to Visit in Paso Robles Right Now

We are proud to make Matt Kettman's list of "Best Wineries to Visit" in Paso Robles. From Matt's piece:

For an educational experience, head through the oak-lined twists of Adelaida Road to Tablas Creek Vineyard. Founded in the 1990s by wine importer Robert Haas, who worked with the Perrin family of Chateau Beaucastel to identify the best place for Rhône varieties in California, Tablas is “the epitome of Paso,” says Addamo. “You go to that tasting room to learn something.”
