Tablas Creek Vineyard is worth a visit

Our Journey

Tablas Creek Vineyard is counted among the finest vineyards in the country. They’ve also gained acclaim for some of their wines all over the globe, which is certainly worth being proud of. The folks at this outstanding vineyard deserve to be proud of their achievements and a visit to their estate is certainly worth planning for.

This gorgeous estate is spread across 120 acres and features some idyllic scenery. From the Paso Robles city center, it takes 25 minutes to reach the vineyard, which is well-situated with plenty of road access. The views while traveling to the vineyard will have your camera popping as well, which is an added bonus.

From modest beginnings

Tablas Creek Vineyard was established by 2 families in 1989. The Perrin Family and Robert Haas were in the business of importing wine for a pretty long period of time before they bought land for setting up Tablas Creek Vineyard. The vineyards today only employ organic farming in order to grow the grapes for wine making. This ensures that the quality of the wine is pretty astute and meets the Certified Organic standards that have become quite popular.

In 2010, they launched the Patelin de Tablas collection, which was an instant hit with the local Wine lovers as well as wine consumers across the world. They have released several vintages over the years that have gained great acclaim, making them a producer of premium wines, which keeps the connoisseurs quite happy.

Things to do in Tablas Creek Vineyard

There is plenty to do at this lovely location from their tasting experiences to tours of the vineyard. ¬†We certainly suggest both, as you’ll love the atmosphere and the staff are friendly, informative, and quite knowledgeable.

  1. Wine tasting session:
    • The tasting room in Tablas Creek Vineyard is open each and every day from 10 AM to 5 PM. The wines which are available for tasting are Rhone Style wines. In addition to Wine tasting, you can also head over to the estate for a picnic. They’ve arranged quite a large amount of space for those who wish to do this, so you’ll have no trouble finding a great spot.
    • The cost for a basic tasting experience is $15, however, this fee is refunded to you if you purchase a bottle of wine, making it quite a nice option. In addition, the friendly staff are more than willing and able to help you select a wine that will suit your needs, explaining each one.
    • If you’re looking for a more expansive wine tasting session, you can opt for the collectors tasting experience. The cost of this experience would be $ 40 per person and reservations need to be made at least a day in advance in order to book your seat in the sessions. The sessions are conducted from Sunday to Friday from 11:30 AM to 3 PM. On Saturdays, they are conducted only at 10 AM. These sessions are quite sought after, making it essential to reserve a seat well ahead of time.
  2. Winery Tours:
    • If you’d like to explore the entire estate, they also hold daily winery tours, free of charge. The tours are held twice per day and cover the vineyards, as well as the rest of the estate. The outstanding staff discuss the process of making the wine from vine to bottle and are more than able to answer any questions you may have about their wines.
