- Chef Jacques' Table Six-Course Wine Tasting & Dinner Experience Featuring the Delectable Wines of Tablas Creek Vineyard With Special Guest Daniel Haas, Celebrating the 68th Anniversary of the Founding of Chez Francois
September 15, 2022

Grande Tente Garden Terrace
Please join us as we welcome Daniel Haas to L’Auberge Chez François to once again celebrate the wines of Tablas Creek Vineyard in Paso Robles. Daniel is the son of founder and renowned importer Robert Haas, and we are thrilled to have him with us to discuss the wines and Tablas’ vision. Founded in 1989 as a partnership between the Perrin family of Château de Beaucastel and the Haas family of importer Vineyard Brands, Tablas Creek has been at the center of the Rhône movement in California, bringing in and propagating high quality cuttings of the many different varieties grown at Beaucastel. Not only has this broadened the range of wine styles that can be produced in California and the US, it gives growers access to grape varieties from the south of France that should perform well in a changing climate.
Recently Tablas has also become a pioneer in sustainability, as the first winery anywhere to achieve Regenerative Organic Certification, applying a range of science-based, holistic practices that sequester carbon in the soil while increasing the health and diversity of the soil microbiome. This in turn increases the health of the vines and the resilience of the vineyard to pressure from bad weather, disease, or pests. Tablas has a robust virtual presence, with a celebrated blog, live podcasts and interviews, all of which are entertaining and enlightening on wine-related topics. Check them out!
We are very excited to feature the Rhône-inspired wines of Tablas Creek tonight. Chef Jacques and team have designed a menu to highlight the complexity and beauty of these wines. You won’t want to miss this very special 68th anniversary wine dinner experience with Tablas Creek and Daniel Haas, served on our beautiful terrace in our 40 x 55 foot tent overlooking our two on site vegetable gardens and beautiful grounds. See you there!
