"A key region for wine production on the stretch of land between San Francisco and Los Angeles known as the Central Coast is Paso Robles, with 200-plus wineries draped across more than 650,000 acres and centered around the city that shares its name.

Since its inception in 1989, Tablas Creek has led the charge for top-quality Rhône-style wines in California."

The Press Paso Tablas Creek

San Francisco Chronicle: "Tablas Creek, Key Winery for America's Rhone Movement"

The Press is the San Francisco Chronicle's guide to wine country, which recently expanded to include Paso Robles. From our review:

"The Tablas Creek story is well told, but the importance of this vineyard and winery for the state of America’s Rhone wine movement cannot be overstated. As you might expect from such a focused, generational, global project, the tasting room is really a place for education about all aspects of wine."

Winemaking: the Next Generation on Alcohol Professor

Our Jason Haas is one of six second-generation proprietors featured in this thoughtful article. From the introduction:

"While the wine business has always been challenging, new generations of winemakers face new sets of challenges their parents and older winemaking relatives didn’t have to contend with--things like how to stay relevant using social media, effects of climate change, and connectivity with modern consumers who have higher expectations and don’t necessarily choose wine by regional or brand reputation alone. Are sweeping changes at the house always necessary, or can next generation winemakers take on the business with simple tweaks? Here are six winemakers who’ve continued a family legacy, and how they operate in a very different modern world."
