Tablas Creek Vineyard

Tablas Creek Vineyard is a pioneer of the California Rhone movement, founded by the Perrin and Haas families in the limestone hills of Paso Robles.

About the winery
Tablas Creek Vineyard is a pioneer of California’s Rhone movement. In 1989, after a decades-long friendship, the Perrin family of Château de Beaucastel and the Haas family of Vineyard Brands bought an estate in the limestone-rich Adelaida District of Paso Robles. They chose the site for its similarities to Chateauneuf-du-Pape, and vine material was imported from Beaucastel, underwent a rigorous 3-year quarantine, and was propagated in an on-site grapevine nursery. Planting began in 1992. Today, Tablas Creek’s largely dry-farmed vineyard is certified both organic and Biodynamic, with a mobile herd of 200+ sheep and alpacas controlling weeds and building fertility. Native yeast fermentation and aging in large neutral oak foudres produce Rhone-style wines of character and intensity.

History & Geography
The partners searched California from the foothills of the Sierras in the north to coastal Ventura County in the south, looking for a close match to the Mediterranean climate and high pH soils of Château de Beaucastel. In 1989, they purchased a 120-acre parcel twelve miles from the Pacific Ocean in what is now the Adelaida District west of Paso Robles. They named it Tablas Creek Vineyard, after the small creek running through the property. The property elevation averages 1,500 feet, and the shallow, rocky limestone soils are of the same geologic origin as those at Beaucastel. Summer days are hot and sunny, but the influence of the nearby Pacific cools the nights, and the remarkably Rhône-like Paso Robles climate allows the grapes to mature fully and yet retain crisp acidity. Ample rainfall in the winter allows most of the vineyard to be dry-farmed each year.
