Tablas Creek Vineyard
Open: Year Round
Tablas Creek is a vineyard and winery in north-west Paso Robles, and one of the pioneers of Rhone varietals in California. Tablas Creek is the result of a decades-long friendship between the Perrin family of ChÃ¢teau de Beaucastel and Robert Haas, longtime importer and founder of Vineyard Brands. The families created a partnership in 1985 and in 1989 purchased a 120-acre property in the hilly Las Tablas district of west Paso Robles for its similarities to ChÃ¢teauneuf du Pape: limestone soils, a favorable climate, and rugged terrain.The partners imported the traditional varietals grown on the Perrins' celebrated estate, including MourvÃ¨dre, Grenache Noir, Syrah, and Counoise for reds, and Roussanne, Viognier, Marsanne, and Grenache Blanc for whites. The wine at Tablas Creek Vineyard is produced by Ryan Hebert.
Upon a recent vacation to Paso Robles, my friends and I happened upon this gem of a winery. From the start, it was obvious the staff knew a vast amount about flavor profiles and the complexities of aptly growing grapes of a wide variety of origins. The wines themselves were outstanding, each blended wine was subtle, smooth, and paired well with a variety of foods we brought in. Notably, our semelier, Amanda Weaver, was knowledgeable, helpful, and incredibly considerate. I'd highly recommend this winery to anyone visiting the Paso Robles area.
My recent experience at Tablas Creek was incredible! Along with the beautiful scenery, Amanda was able to recommend their most applicable wines for the warm weather. Definitley coming back!
Very cool tasting room showcasing enormous barrels indoors and beautiful views outdoors. Wines are all blends in the style of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, so if that's your thing, this is your spot. Wasn't my kind of wine, and service wasn't so great. I felt it was pricey, but for the right person, this could be a fine place to visit.
Warm and personable service in the tasting room. Wines are outstanding. The limestone rock wall is stunning -no mortar used !
Great experience. Friendly service great wines.
