“In this series we bring you our #FavouriteThings Holiday Gift Suggestions which we personally recommend”
Yes, it’s that time of year once again. Time for you to get thinking about gift giving. We want to make it easy for you to give the perfect gift and so today we are launching our 2020 #FavouriteThings Holiday Gift Suggestions.
This year we are recommending the wines of Four Shadows Vineyard & Winery for yourself and for the perfect gift for friends or family members that love wine.
Here is a small selection I have enjoyed before and personally recommend.
This full bodied, slightly oaked wine releases aromas of honey, butter, pear, caramel and mint. On the palate you will find flavours of toasted bread, vanilla and ripe pear.
This barrel aged, unfiltered Merlot releases intense aromas and flavours of dried plums, black currants, vanilla and caramel. A dry, full bodied and well balanced fruity wine with a long finish.
2018 Pinot Noir
This medium bodied, barrel aged Pinot Noir has elegant, fruity aromas of raspberries, candied cherries and dried plums. Upon tasting you’ll find blackberry, pepper and earth-driven layers, like herbs and mushroom on the palate. A dry, well balanced wine with a lovely long finish.
We are pleased to announce that Four Shadows wine can be purchased from multiple locations throughout British Columbia or if you prefer the convenience, you can now order your wine online.

About Joka & Wilbert Borren
“Family means the world to us. The Four Shadows name was inspired by a photograph of our four sons during a family vacation in Mexico. Even though our boys are growing up and following their own dreams, they are still a big part of Four Shadows. They have left their mark – from helping in the vineyard, renovating the tasting room building, or making the beautiful sign that hangs outside our tasting room. “
“We hope that when you visit our tasting room, your experience is one which is comfortable and fun. Our intention is for it to be an extension of our home where anyone can feel at ease talking about wine regardless of their level of wine knowledge. We want to make wines that you can enjoy with friends and family, and create your own special memories.”
The Borrens have always had adventurous spirits. Wilbert and Joka both grew up in Holland. They bought a small pig farm in Lacombe AB and started a family. After successfully growing and expanding the farm, it was time to sell and find their next adventure. A previous vacation to the beautiful Okanagan area had them intrigued. With a strong desire to continue farming, in 2011 they purchased a 17 acres vineyard property and moved their young family to Penticton BC.
