Four Shadows Vineyard and Winery

Four Shadows is a fairly new Naramata Bench winery with a focus on family. Owners Joka and Wilbert Borren grew up in the Netherlands and farmed in Alberta before moving to Penticton in 2011.

Initially, they grew grapes for other producers before starting their very own winery. The tasting room opened in 2019.

Four Shadows may sound like an unusual name for a winery but there’s a lot of heart behind it. The four shadows in question are Joka and Wilbert’s four sons, inspired by a photograph taken on a family holiday. Their silhouettes now welcome guests to the winery and adorn every bottle of wine sold.

Fans of Riesling and (oaked) Chardonnay will enjoy the opportunity to try and buy multiple varieties at Four Shadows. Other vintages include Merlot, Pinot and Rosé.

Four Shadows has two different spaces for tasting – at a ‘U’ shaped bar inside the modern tasting room or on the paved patio outside. The latter is surrounded by vineyards, with views of Campbell Mountain above. There is the possibility of being served by a member of the family, particularly in the quieter tasting months.
