Sister vineyard to Chateau de Beaucastel in France exclusively produces estate-grown, organically farmed wines on its Westside property.. In Short Established in 1989, when the area was still in its adolescent stages of wine production, Tablas eschewed the movement towards big, New World zins and cabs, instead producing Rhone-style blends and unusual varietals like mourvedre. The land was chosen for similarity in soil and climate to the French Chateauneuf de Pape region. The red- and brown-hued tasting room consists of two separate coverted office and conference spaces, with three sampling stations. Once very form over function, a complete remodel was completed in early 2007.
