Tinhorn Creek Vineyards, in British Columbia’s South Okanagan valley, is pleased to announce a new service that allows its award winning wines to be ordered directly from the winery and then shipped to addresses across the US.
This new service benefits not only American visitors to Tinhorn Creek’s tasting room, who can now arrange for their new discoveries to be shipped home, but also Canadian enthusiasts who want to share their favourite Tinhorn Creek wines with others across the border.
“For the first time since moving to Canada twenty years ago, I can now send our wines to my family and friends in the US,” says President & CEO Sandra Oldfield, who came from California to British Columbia to bottle the winery’s first vintage in 1994. “We hope many more US wine lovers will come visit to discover the unique qualities of Canadian wines, and if they can’t visit they can now try a little taste of Tinhorn Creek delivered right to their door. For other Canadians with family in the US or snowbirds who winter in the States, they can now arrange to enjoy the best of the Okanagan year round.”
Six select Tinhorn Creek wines that showcase the region’s distinct winemaking style and terroir have been chosen to launch this program:
2013 Pinot Gris
2013 Oldfield Series 2Bench White
2011 Cabernet Franc
2010 Oldfield Series Merlot
2010 Oldfield Series 2Bench Red
