CBC Shines a National Spotlight on the South Okanagan

The secret is out!

Now, all of Canada knows just how lucky we are to be in the South Okanagan.

Our region was the focus of a recent episode of the Rick Mercer Report. The charismatic TV personality visited in September, and got a little taste of Okanagan Life.


First stop for Rick Mercer was our very own Osoyoos! Our neighbours at the award-winning Nk’Mip Cellars got a chance to showcase their stunning vineyard views, charming winemaker, and delicious wines (right from the barrel).


The film crew’s visit to the Festival of the Grape was a particularly exciting one for everyone at Watermark, as we proudly sponsor this event each year.


At this popular Oliver wine party, Mercer got to celebrate in true Okanagan style: tasting samples from many of our more than 170 local wineries, joking with locals and visitors, and even participating in the Grape Stomp competition.


He may have gotten a little sticky, but we’re sure Mercer was glad to have jumped into the South Okanagan life with both feet!

Thanks for sharing our good fortune across the country, CBC!
