Celebrate Lunar New Year With Penfolds

January 9, 2023

Lunar New Year is an occasion to be celebrated with a generous gift of exceptional wine. Penfolds has been making remarkable wine since 1844 and has become one of the most recognizable and respected New World wine brands, which makes them a trusted choice for gifting.

This year, wish your friends and family good luck, good health and longevity with the gift of Bin 389. Numbers that sound similar to fortunate words in Chinese are regarded as auspicious:

  • 3 symbolizes New Beginnings
  • 8 symbolizes Prosperity
  • 9 symbolizes Longevity

Bin 389 was often referred to as Baby Grange, in part because components of the wine are matured in the same barrels that held the previous vintage of Grange. First made in 1960 by the legendary Max Schubert, this was the wine that helped forge Penfolds reputation with red wine drinkers by combining the structure of cabernet sauvignon with the richness of shiraz. Exemplifying the judicious balance of fruit and oak, Bin 389 highlights the generous mid-palate Penfolds in known for.

Other Penfolds wines available at select BCLS stores include; Penfolds Grange Shiraz 2018, Penfolds Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon 2019, Penfolds Bin 407 Cabernet Sauvignon 2020, Penfolds Bin 311 Chardonnay 2021, Penfolds Bin 51 Eden Valley Riesling 2022, Penfolds 2018 Quantum Cabernet Sauvignon, Penfolds Bin 149 Cabernet Sauvignon 2019, Penfolds Bin 600 Cabernet Shiraz 2019, Penfolds Bin 704 Cabernet Sauvignon 2019, Penfolds Bin 128 Coonawarra Shiraz 2020, Penfolds Bin 28 Shiraz 2020, and many more.

On Friday January 20, when you purchase a bottle of Penfolds at BCLS Park Royal, consumers will receive a personalized engraving courtesy of Vancouver Calligrapher artist Vivien Wang, from Vivi Lettering from 4 to 8 p.m. Gift wrapping will be provided while supplies last.
