About Tablas Creek
Tablas Creek’s limestone-rich 120-acre organic estate vineyard is located in the heart of the Adelaida District, in the hills north and west of Paso Robles, about 11 miles from the Pacific Ocean. Their viticulture practices emphasize quality through dry-farming and moderate crop levels. They farm organically, and received our organic certification in January 2003. Since 2010 they have incorporated many Biodynamic techniques across the vineyard, including their own mobile herd of sheep, alpacas and two guard donkeys, Fiona and Dottie. Their goal in our farming, as in their winemaking, is to maximize the expression of place from their vineyard, and to produce grapes full of intensity and character.
Like their viticulture, their winemaking decisions are made to preserve the wines’ expression of their place of origin. At harvest, each vineyard block is hand-harvested selectively, typically in 2-4 passes through each block.
