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 Château de Beaucastel, in Châteauneuf-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. Characteristics of the Tablas Creek clones are available through the links below.
