Wineries Included in the 2024 Tasting Passport

Backroads Brewing

Located in the Watermark Hotel, Backroads Brewery brings a cozy, backroads cabin feel with wood tables and a selection of games to play while enjoying a pint (or two). This small batch brews beer at their Nelson location and on site, ensuring a fresh taste with every sip.
On tap: Golden Ale, Northwest IPA, Kolsch, Pale Ale, along with limited release rotating beers

Stoneboat Vineyards

Known as the “Pinot House,” Stoneboat Vineyards’ vines thrive in the rocky, calcareous soil of the Black Sage Bench. The heat-retaining stones ensure that the soil and vines remain warm well into the cooler autumn temperatures, allowing the grapes to fully ripen and develop a rich, enduring Pinot flavor.
Varietals: Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Rose

Valley Commons

When professional athletes Rudy Verhoeff and Kyla Richey started their winery they envisioned a place where friends and family could gather to enjoy each other’s company amongst the beauty of the Okanagan. With a laid back atmosphere, their motto is “Valley Commons is a place to come as you are”.
Varietals: Spring features include Gamay Rose, Viognier and Merlot-forward Harvest Table Red

Black Hills Estate Winery

Located 13 km north of Osoyoos, Black Hills Estate Winery is renowned for its Bordeaux and Rhone varietals. The west-facing vineyards benefit from hot, dry days and cool nights, producing bold and flavorful grapes at harvest.
Varietals: Chardonnay, Syrah and cult-favorite Note Bene, a rich Merlot blend.

Phantom Creek Estates

Established in 1996, Phantom Creek Estates is a staple among the Black Sage Bench. Proudly organic with biodynamic farming, every vine is cultivated with meticulous care and precision, creating sustainable wine with extraordinary taste.
Varietals: Sparkling Brut, Cuvée, Merlot

Liber Estates

Just a four-minute drive from Watermark Beach Resort, Liber Estates is a family-run organic winery situated along the river.

Varietals: Chardonnay, Viognier, Merlot

Corcelettes Estate Winery

Varietals: Gewurztraminer, Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc

Apricus Cellars

The word Apricus comes from the medieval Latin word that means both ’basking in sunshine’ and ‘delectable’, which pretty much sums up the experience of this winery. Located in the District Wine Village in Oliver, you can sip on a glass of the 2020 Aurora while enjoying one of their many live events, such as the Colin James Blues Trio Outdoor Concert (check website for all upcoming events).
Varietals: Known for blends such as the Merlot-prominent Zephyr, or the Pinot Gris-forward Daybreak.

Church & State Wines

Perched on the edge of the Coyote Bowl in the Oliver-Osoyoos region, you can enjoy your tastings on the patio with a view of the Golden Mile or inside looking into their barrel room. Unlike many wineries in the area, Church & State provides a relaxing atmosphere and welcomes walk-ins, offering you flexibility on your wine journey.
Varietals: The Coyote Bowl Series features Chardonnay, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Syrah

Nk’mip Cellars

As the first Indigenous-owned winery in North America, Nk’mip Cellars embodies the rich culture of its creators, the Osoyoos Indian Band, in every aspect. The winery is driven by the belief that they are “inspired to capture time in a bottle.” Nk’mip Cellars also features a world-class restaurant that serves locally sourced dishes on an expansive patio overlooking Okanagan Lake.
Varietals: Merlot, Pinot Blanc, Rose

Nostalgia Wines

Nostalgia Wines is a hidden gem off the beaten path in Oliver striving to make memorable wine experiences. This female-owned and run boutique winery invites guests to pause and make moments to remember while exploring the wines.

15 Park Bistro

Situated within Watermark Beach Resort, 15 Park Bistro is dedicated to using regional and seasonal ingredients. The restaurant features over ten wines by the glass and boasts an impressive wine cellar for those who prefer to order by the bottle. If you’re in the mood for something different, try one of their seasonal inspired cocktails, such as The “Big Dill” Caesar or the Bourbon Maple Fizz.

Supporting BC’s Wine Community

Watermark is a proud supporter of the local wine community, with strong relationships with owners, wine makers and wine lovers.

With the recent hardships the wine community faced, the BC wine community needs your support. Every visit to a local winery and every bottle purchased becomes a gesture of solidarity. By partaking in tasting experiences and exploring the richness of BC’s wine country, you make a difference to the winemakers, their families and the Okanagan region.
