In this feature in the Napa Valley Register, author Allen Balik dives into the diverse traditions of blending around the world, then uses a conversation with Proprietor Jason Haas as a starting point for an exploration of how we at Tablas Creek have applied those traditions to our unique situation here in Paso Robles.
