Tablas Creek in the Purely Domestic Wine Report (PDWR): Seventeen Wines 90+ (Nine 93+)

We were excited to read Doug Wilder's newest issue of the Purely Domestic Wine Report (PDWR) in which he reviewed the wines of the Central Coast. If you're unfamiliar with the publication, Doug combines wine reviews with portrait-style photographs of each winemaker or proprietor whose wines he features. The result is a visual presentation unlike any other wine journal out there.

New Times: As the first Regenerative Organic Certified winery, Tablas Creek is committed to farming like the world depends on it

In this great article in our local New Times SLO, writer Camillia Lanham shares the story of our first-in-the-world Regenerative Organic Certification. From her conclusion:

"It starts really with our belief that farming this way makes better grapes and better wine," Haas said, adding that the vineyard is a small piece of a broader community. "I hope we're not the only [winery with the certification] for long. This is one of those things where the more people who do it, the better it is for all of us."

Bloomberg: Organic Winemaking Is a Zoo With Armadillos, Falcons, and Pigs

Author Elin McCoy spoke to our Jason Haas for this fun Bloomberg article, with a more serious message: "Beyond cute cats and dogs, vineyard animals are becoming essential eco-conscious parts of the fine-winemaking process."

Our sheep, alpacas, donkey, and llama are pretty basic when compared to the snakes, armadillos, and geese in this story!

Washington Post: The ROC certification could become the gold standard for wineries, and the earth

In this terrific article in the Washington Post, Dave McIntyre explores the significance of the new Regenerative Organic Certification which we were the first winery to receive in August. He comes away as enthusiastic as we are. From his piece:

For consumers, the ROC logo on a wine label is “not going to tell you much about the wine, but it’s going to tell you a lot about the company,” says Haas of Tablas Creek. “It’s the most rigorous evaluation of farming and business practices that we’ve seen. It says this is a company that treats its people well and does what it can to be a part of the solution to challenges like climate change.”
