Canadian Signature Experience
Watermark Beach Resort invites you to immerse yourself in our Canadian Signature Experience “A Culinary Journey through Canada’s Desert” in partnership with Covert Farms.
This remarkable culinary journey begins at Watermark Beach Resort on sun-warmed Osoyoos Lake and continues through Canada’s only pocket desert to the organic fields and vineyards, country market and wine shop at Covert Farms in the south Okanagan Valley. Guests travel through a rare antelope-brush ecosystem, past steep bluffs that are home to 18 species of bats and onto a sandy plateau where a glacial ice dam burst 10,000 years ago. Here, First Nations fishing grounds on the Okanagan River nudge up against the lush biodynamic fields of 600-acre Covert Farms.
Guests are picked up in a vintage 1952 Mercury truck for a fun guided farm tour, stopping along the way to pick and taste peaches, muskmelons and tomatoes, sun-basked and fresh from the vine. Back at the Watermark Wine Bar and Patio, local wines are paired with farm-fresh Okanagan Valley fare. Evening falls to the serenade of circling nighthawks and guests feel like they can almost reach out and touch the stars, brilliant against the ink-black night sky of a true Canadian desert.
