It’s no longer the new kid on the block. Four Shadows Vineyard in Penticton has firmly established its position on the wine trail, winning 11 national and provincial awards since opening its tasting room in 2019.
“All of our wines are made from our own grapes grown right here,” said owner Wilbert Borren as he smiled and gestured to the scenic rolling hills of their 17-acre vineyard. “Riesling is our flagship wine and we are happy to announce an increase in production this year of our Classic and Dry as well as adding a new Riesling Sparkle to our portfolio.”
“2020 was a spectacular year for growing grapes,” Borren continued. “The beautiful fall season allowed the fruit to come in nice and clean, really allowing the grapes to just do their own thing. Harvesting was an absolute pleasure.”
On April 1, 2021, the 2020 Rieslings will be released, and visitors to the tasting room will also have the opportunity to sample the 2019 Chardonnay, 2017 and 2018 Merlot, 2018 Pinot Noir and 2020 Rosé. Aficionados can join the Four Shadows Wine Club to purchase wines before they are offered to the public.
