This region is the beating heart of wine country, benches, gentle hills, plains and slopes account for almost 60% of all vineyards in the Okanagan Valley and 50% of all vineyards in British Columbia. Home to 3 sub-Geographical Indications: Black Sage Bench, Golden Mile Bench & Golden Mile Slopes, a highway hugged by fruit trees where land is more fertile. The region also includes the first indigenous winery in Canada.
Welcome to Oliver & Osoyoos!
Let me take you on a wine adventure where you will have the opportunity to visit a 650 acre regenerative farm and winery where you'll enjoy picturesque views left behind from the last ice age with the majestic MacIntyre Bluff in the distance.
Here you'll find Covert Farm Family Estate, a fourth-generation, family-run farm who are leaders in regenerative agriculture. You’ll taste your way through 7 wines from their portfolio which will be paired alongside locally sourced artisanal cheeses, cured meats, pickles, olives, crackers, and seasonal produce and edible flowers grown right from their farm.
Optional Add-on: Based on availability at time of booking, I can arrange a tour aboard their cherry-red ’52 Mercury truck for a private, guided 1.5-hour outdoor tour throughout their 650-acre regenerative farm and vineyards. This is one of my all time favourite tour options in the Okanagan where you'll enjoy the breathtaking views while learning about the world of sustainable farming and winemaking, meet the resident farm animals, enjoy wine tasting in the vineyards, and pull fresh strawberries or blackberries from the U-pick (when in season). This feature is only Wednesday-Sunday and is based on availability. This is a tour that the sooner you book, the better. To see what dates are available for this feature you can always sneak peak here or, let me know in advance as soon as possible. This will have an additional fee of $49 per person plus applicable taxes. At the time of booking, there will be a drop down box where you can specify if you would like this add-on.
But that's not all! Have the opportunity to visit 3 other wineries during your day who all focus on organic and biodynamic principles, waiting for you to discover and leave a lasting impression on your palate and your soul. The wines are calling you.... are you ready to answer?
