Tablas Creek Chooses lighter glass bottles landscape

Washington Post: Lighter wine bottles don’t affect quality and are better for the planet

In a great new perspective column by Washington Post Wine Writer Dave McIntyre, Tablas Creek gets highlighted for our work moving to (and educating consumers on) lightweight bottles. From his introduction:

Those behemoths weighing as much as a kilogram when empty are not yet extinct, but they may be close to endangered. More and more wineries are shifting to bottles under 600 grams, even closer to 500 and as low as 380 grams. This is great news, and not just for our backs and our wrists. It’s good for our planet.

Bravo, Dave!

Jancis Robinson: A step beyond organic viticulture, producers are reaping the rewards of regeneration

In her weekly column in Financial Times, Jancis Robinson dives into the promise of regenerative farming. In it, she highlights the Regenerative Organic Certified program, Tablas Creek's role as an early adopter, and recommends our 2017 Esprit de Tablas as one of her regeneratively farmed top picks! From the piece:

The American ROC (Regenerative Organic Certification™), launched in 2020, is more demanding because it’s even more wide-ranging and requires a commitment to organic farming. It also requires integrating animal welfare and livestock operations, where appropriate (it can be applied to a wide variety of products — not just wine) as well as the social aspects of sustainability (looking after the workforce and so on).

The organisation’s motto is “Farm like the world depends on it”. So far the only wine operations to be fully ROC-certified are Domaine Bousquet in Argentina, Troon in Oregon and Fetzer, Neal, Sominer, Tablas Creek and Truett-Hurst in California.
