Andrew Jefford in Decanter: Is Paso Robles California's Mediterranean Wine Lab?

It was so exciting to see one of our favorite wine writers (Andrew Jefford) in one of the world's most important and venerable wine magazines (Decanter) dive into the amazing diversity of Paso Robles. Plus, his featured wine was our Patelin the Tablas Blanc!

From his conclusion:"Is it California’s Mediterranean wine lab? Or a place for purring, blue-velvet Cabs? Let’s see. Enjoy the ride."

Wine Enthusiast Article on Alternative Packaging

Wine Enthusiast: Are Wine Drinkers Ready for Paper, Aluminum and Other Alternative Packaging?

We were excited to see Kate Dingwall's article on alternative packaging! She did a great job referencing the different alternatives to the typical glass vessel. She highlighted our boxed wines prominently. From the article:

Despite shifts in drinking habits and values, the larger wine industry continues to be resistant to change. Even so, sustainability leaders like Haas are heartened that more wineries are experimenting with these new formats.“I’m a big believer in not letting perfect be the enemy of the good,” says Haas. “Based on the technology we have right now, these are good environmental solutions, particularly for wines people are going to be drinking in the next six to twelve months.”

Jancis Robinson Wines of the Week Tablas Creek Patelin de Tablas

JancisRobinson.com: "The best-value wines, bar none, in Paso Robles"

In a lovely new feature on jancisrobinson.com, Samantha Cole-Johnson recommends both our 2022 Patelin de Tablas Blanc and our 2022 Patelin de Tablas. From her introduction:

On my trip to Paso Robles last September, I tasted 152 wines from 44 producers in four days. The best-value wines, bar none, were Tablas Creek’s 2022 Patelin de Tablas wines. Both the white and the red were affordable, inarguably delicious, balanced and refreshing, and either could have aged for a further five years.
