Clonal Vinestock - Our Tablas Creek Clones

All of our plantings are high quality clonal vinestock sourced from Inland Desert Nursery in Benton City. Most of the Rhone varietals are Tablas Creek clones, which are cuttings from vines at Ch√Ęteau de Beaucastel, in Ch√Ęteauneuf-du-Pape. These cuttings were imported by the Perrin family and subjected to the USDA indexing process to ensure that they are free of virus.

In the late 1980's, Tablas Creek was created in Paso Robles, California. This beautiful 120-acre parcel has very similar characteristics to the Mediterranean climate and high pH soils of the Rhone region of France. Characteristics of the Tablas Creek clones are available through the links below. All of our Tablas Creek clones are TCVS A.

VCR develops desirable French and Italian clones. The VCR website describes the characteristics of these clones including a sensory analysis:
