We are pleased to announce the Fall 2017 VINsider Club shipment, highlighted by the 2015 Esprit de Tablas and 2015 Esprit de Tablas Blanc. It also includes a library release of the 2013 Esprit de Tablas, two compelling blends and one single-varietal bottling. The Classic Mix is below; information on the red-only and white-only shipments is on our club shipments page.

The shipment’s cost of $216.00, plus applicable shipping and taxes, reflects as always a 20% VINsider member savings off the retail prices of the wines in the shipment. For will-call customers, shipments are now available for pickup. Shipped shipments (unless other arrangements were made) were sent out the week of October 3rd.
Red Only and White Only Options
We are excited to offer, in addition to our classic mix of red and white wines (and the occasional dry rosé) in each shipment, options for VINsider club members who prefer red-only and white-only shipments. Like our classic mix, the red-only and white-only options are selected from small-production lots, special blends, and sneak previews.
Please note that due to the limited supplies of our library wines, we cannot offer red-only or white-only options for our fall Collector's Edition shipments, although Collector's Edition members are welcome to choose red-only or white-only for their spring shipments.
If you have any questions about our different color mix options, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 805.237.1231 x239.
