Tablas Creek Vineyard: First Winery in the World to Receive Regenerative Organic Certificate
We're thrilled to see the recognition in our home town Paso Robles Press of our being the world's first winery with Regenerative Organic Certification. From Mira Honeycutt's story:
Tablas Creek Vineyard understandably prides itself on the number of “firsts” achieved by the winery.
It is certainly the first — and only — winery to import all grape varieties that grow in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape region of France. Consequently, Tablas Creek is the first to establish a style of wine that hasn’t existed before in North America —namely Châteauneuf-du-Pape-style blends and single varietal wines.
But the winery’s latest “first” is truly a first among firsts. Tablas Creek Vineyard is the first winery in the world to receive the Regenerative Organic Certificate (ROC), a certification dedicated to organic and biodynamic farming, with an emphasis on climate change and reforming agriculture.
