Friday, February 9th we will be pouring a flight of several selections from Tablas Creek Vineyards. Darren Delmore, their National Sales Manager, will be in attendance to share more about the winery. Darren has worn many hats over the years: surfer, writer, publisher, educator. His most recent chapeau for the last 5 years has been national sales manager for Tablas Creek. He's been in love with Tablas Creek wines well before he donned that hat, and has many stories and facts to share with us.
Tablas Creek is the combined effort of two proud wine families: the Perrin family of Château de Beaucastel and the Haas family of Vineyard Brands. Not enough to merely grow Rhône varietals in California, they created their own nursery to plant the special clones needed to grow their grapes. Of their many unique vintages, we will be pouring the following selections:
2016 Tablas Creek Patelin de Tablas Blanc
2016 Tablas Creek Clairette Blanche
2015 Tablas Creek Patelin de Tablas (red Rhône varietals blend)
2014 Tablas Creek Tannat
And an additional surprise older vintage that Darren will be bringing!
The cost of the flight is $15 for general admission, and free of charge for Soif wine club members.
