We are extremely excited about our tasting with Jason Haas, at Tablas Creek, the world's first Regenerative Organic Certified winery. Between 2018 and August 2020, the team at Tablas Creek committed to adding practices to their already biodynamic farming that are meant to create solutions to the nefarious effects of the climate crisis, factory farming, and to help repair fractured rural economies. It is an ambitious but wonderfully hopeful vision. Please join us to hear more while tasting some of our favorite, high-value wines.
