Tablas Creek Vineyard at Faz
Note that Tablas Creek Vineyard at Faz in Danville is SOLD OUT!

Tablas Creek
was started by the Haas family and the Perrin family, the Perrins being the owners of the renowned Chateau de Beaucatel in Chateauneuf du Pape. They established Tablas Creek in the northwestern part of the Paso Robles area because the soil types reminded them of their Rhone property. Needless to say, all of the wines will be Rhone varietals or blends of Rhone varieties. Attendees will also be treated to a mini-vertical, as Tablas Creek’s flagship red wine, Esprit, will be poured in both the 2003 and 2012 vintages. General Manager Jason Haas is scheduled to be our speaker.
 
For this dinner we are returning to Faz in Danville. Chef Robert Rodriguez, who assisted Dolly Jacoby for many years will be executing the five course menu.

End-of-Year French Champagne
There is still one more event on our 2014, 20th Anniversary calendar:
 

Champagne!


K&L Wine Merchants
sends their Champagne Buyer, Gary Westby, to the Champagne region of France to procure Great Champagne at reasonable prices. We have had this event several times before, and Gary Westby is always our speaker. However, earlier this year, Gary had a little “boo-boo” on his bicycle and broke his femur in three places. While he is on the mend, rest and therapy are as much as he can currently handle. This will prevent him from being our speaker this year. He did, however promise to send me equipped with a plethora of information about the TEN, count ‘em TEN Champagnes, we will be pairing with the delicious fare of Buon Appetito Restaurant, as created by Executive Chef Martino.
