Once inside, there are many tasting areas and rooms throughout, and you'll be certain to notice that they have a TON of assorted merchandise for sale. Our wine host was McKenna, and she was very nice and knowledgeable. I may say that in a lot of my blogs, but I still get amazed at the amount of knowledge these people have!

that is one of the many reasons why I love wine!  Just keeping it real.

Tablas Creek Vineyard-

Tablas Creek is one of the older wineries in Paso Robles, and I would say is best known for bringing
Rhône style wine to the region. There’s some great information about their history on their website, if you’re interested. Upon entry into the tasting room, there are vines of Rhône Varietals for sale, and canteens full of cold water to take around with you during your visit; there is also a water bowl for dogs, on the ground, as it's a pet friendly place (and we like that).

So on this particular day, the wine was just okay to us, which I’m sure will be an unpopular statement to some of you. We’re not sure if maybe it was because we had so many BIG wines prior that weekend, but the wines just seemed….light. We did, however, really enjoy the Rosé and the Syrah. Much to our disappointment, the Rosé was unavailable to purchase unless you are a Club Member. We found that a bit odd, especially since it was on the tasting list, and you can also purchase it through their website.

The winery is very beautiful and BIG! The grounds are very nice and there is a shaded patio area outside, should you wish to bring a picnic.  Tablas Creek is a staple of Paso and pretty much on many people’s top ten list of Paso wineries to visit, so please don’t let us deter you. Everyone’s palates and preferences are different, and not everyone is going to have the same opinion....and
