Twenty miles west, another idealistic realm, Tablas Creek Vineyard, had a very different experience. Like AmByth, Tablas cultivates biodynamically. In 2020, it became the first vineyard in the country to receive a regenerative organic certification, which requires adherence to standards to encourage healthy soils and promote animal welfare and fairness for agricultural workers.

It’s much bigger than AmByth, with six times the vineyard. It has a reception center, parking and professional reception staff. When visitors come up the hill to visit AmByth, Robyn Hart meets them and pours the wine.

Tablas Creek also produces superb wines, although more conventional than Ambyth’s, mostly blends and varietal wines made from 16 grape varieties from the southern Rhône.

Unlike AmByth, Tablas started with a serious plan. The owners are a partnership of two families with a long experience in wine. The Perrin family in the south of the Rhône valley in France had owned Beaucastel Castle, revered domain of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, for generations. The Haas family in the United States had a successful wine import business, Vineyard brands.

In the mid-1980s, the families decided to look together for a property in California to cultivate the Rhône grape varieties. After a long search, they settled on a 120-acre site west of the town of Paso Robles, just 12 miles from the Pacific.

They chose the site because the rocky soils were geologically linked to those of Beaucastel, the climate was close to that of the Mediterranean and because they believed that the annual rainfall would allow them to cultivate without irrigation, as in Beaucastel.

Plantations only started in 2003, because the vines, imported from Beaucastel, had to go through quarantine in the United States. When they planted their first vine they said Jason haas, the general manager, they tried to plant as densely as they did in Beaucastel, with a lot more vines per acre than was typical in old California dry-grown vineyards.
