From the rich, lush valley you find a sandy plateau next to the signature spot where the ice dam broke 10,000 years ago.  The land now brings us outstanding wines and a myriad of ground crops and fruit trees to nurish the senses.

This personally guided 1-hour tour provides an educational and entertaining experience of breathtaking landscapes and sustainable farm practices. The passion, humor, and individual approach to this experience is certain to leave you with memories to cherish and an armload of freshly grown organic produce and bottles of wine to share.

Gene, Shelly, and Derek are hands-on passionate farmers, educators, and chefs – they live for the land and all it brings. Part of their passion is education and sharing their wisdom; they are eloquent, fun, passionate, and knowledgeable. They’re also committed to educating all of our senses, so the nature, geography, dirt, wildlife, and earth all play a significant role in their experience and their daily lives.

Back at the Watermark Wine Bar and Patio, local wines are paired with farm-fresh Okanagan Valley fare. Evening falls to a serenade of circling nighthawks and you feel like you can almost reach out and touch the stars, brilliant against the ink-black night sky of a true Canadian desert.
