Please join us Thursday, March 28th at 7:00 PM, as we welcome Jason Haas of Tablas Creek Vineyard, who will be presenting his wines along with wines from partner Château de Beaucastel.
Tablas Creek is the realization of the combined efforts of two of the international wine community’s leading families: the Perrin family, proprietors of Château de Beaucastel, and the Haas family of Vineyard Brands.
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 son of Tablas Creek Vineyard founder and renowned importer Robert Haas, Jason learned the wine business at an early age, accompanying his family on yearly European wine-buying trips and spending two summers working at Château de Beaucastel. He now manages the day to day operations at Tablas Creek, as well as speaking at events around the country on topics including Tablas Creek, Rhone varietals, organic farming, and the Paso Robles region.
We are excited not only to feature the Rhône-inspire wines of Tablas Creek, but to taste the Esprit de Tablas along with its inspiration, Château de Beaucastel from Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Chef Jacques has designed a menu to show off the complexity and beauty of these wines.
