Tablas Creek Vineyard
Dear Tablas Creek Supporter,

Spring greetings from Paso Robles, where what had been a dry winter transformed wonderfully with 11" of rain in March. This rain, with the warming spring days, has produced amazing wildflowers. Budbreak is proceeding apace. News about that, and much more, below.

Remembering Robert Haas, 1927-2018

It is with sadness that we share that our founder Robert Haas passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, March 18th, surrounded by his family, at age 90. A seminal figure in the world of American wine for 65 years, and a regular presence at Tablas Creek into his tenth decade, we will miss him greatly but are grateful for the legacy he left us. His son Jason penned a remembrance of his father on our blog
We have been pleased to read some wonderful tributes to his long and influential career. We have compiled these links: Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast, Decanter, San Francisco Chronicle, Los Angeles Times, New York Times, and Wall Street Journal

2018 Vineyard Update

We have budbreak! We were grateful for the chilly late February weather and the wet March, which combined to give us our latest budbreak since 2013. Jason Haas explores what this all means for the 2018 growing season in his recent blog.  Also on the blog, a wildflower tour of the vineyard, also showing the amazingly green Paso Robles spring landscape. Those of you coming for a tour in the coming weeks are in for a treat.

Blog Feature: Patagonia and Tablas Creek Co-Branding  

Patagonia Inc. is one of the American companies most famous for environmental initiatives and green business practices. We have enormous respect for how they do business. We too strive to ensure that our work has a positive impact on our environment and our community, and our organic and Biodynamic certifications are just a part of this work. On the blog we explore our recent co-branding with Patagonia and the people that made it happen. 

New Seated Flight Tasting

We now offer seated flight tastings at Tablas Creek! Enjoy a flight of wines in our semi-private seated room, including multiple vintages of our flagship Esprit de Tablas. Flight tastings are $25 per person ($10 for wine club members), fee waived with a $75 purchase. Because of our seating constraints, this experience is limited to groups of 8 or fewer. Guests may choose from classic (mixed) flights, all-red, or all-white flights. Although we will fit in walk-ins when we can, reservations are highly recommended. For photos and background, see the Tablas Creek blog. To reserve, choose your date and time online or email

April Wine Feature- 2016 Cotes de Tablas

Each month, we pick a wine to feature, based on the season and how the wine is tasting. We offer that wine at an extra 10% discount, beyond any club or case discounts.
This April we are excited to feature the 2016 Cotes de Tablas. This blend features 55% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 13% Mourvedre, and 7% Counoise, with Grenache's juiciness and vibrancy given substance and depth from the three other grapes. Vinous awarded it 92 points, and said it showed "impressive eneergy thanks to a spine of juicy acidity." Great with everything from steaks, hearty pastas, or anything grilled, this blend will carry you through all those BBQ's in the warmer months to come!  Try it with our braised short ribs recipe.
