“Great wines can only come from great grapes, and the art of winemaking is founded on starting out with the very best grapes and bringing their juice through fermentation as naturally as possible.”
- Neil Collins


Neil Collins

Neil Collins, Winemaker and Vineyard Manager at Tablas Creek, was born and raised in Bristol, England. Trained as a chef, he moved into winemaking with stints with John Munch at Adelaida Cellars and Ken Volk at Wild Horse. At Adelaida, Neil met Robert Haas and the Perrins when Tablas Creek was in its infancy. Neil was so intrigued by the project that he offered his services, and spent a year working and learning at Château de Beaucastel. Before the year was finished, Neil was offered the winemaker position at Tablas Creek, and he has overseen both the organic vineyard and the winery since 1998.

Where the Wine is Made


Tablas Creek Vineyard

Tablas Creek Vineyard, founded by the Perrins of Chateau de Beaucastel and the Haas family of Vineyard Brands, is a pioneer of California's Rhone-style movement and the world's first Regenerative Organic Certified vineyard. Equally owned and run by the two families, the partnership begun in 1987 remains today as ever, even as the next generation of Haases and Perrins have stepped into leadership roles over recent decades.
