Watermark Beach Resort Welcomes Ron Rocher

Ron Rocher’s Story

We are pleased to welcome Ron Rocher to the Watermark team as our talented sommelier and wine educator.

Ron’s interest in the wine industry propelled him to achieve his sommelier diploma through the International Sommelier Guild, and to attend over 200 wine tastings, seminars, private dinners and additional educational courses.

When Ron founded Vine to Wine in 2008 in Vancouver, BC, he combined his passion for wine, entrepreneurial background, and love of working with people into a successful business.

What started as a private wine brokerage quickly grew to more than 50 BC-based clients and a highly-respected position in the wine industry. Ron began organizing and leading wine tastings for groups of 5-50 people, teaching all levels of wine knowledge and the fundamentals of food pairing.

Ron feels wine should be approachable for everyone. His true passion for the small boutique wineries and their philosophies on wine making has reinforced his desire to represent and sell their wines.

Ron has assisted Watermark Beach Resort in sourcing, educating, and creating an immersive Okanagan experience, profiling our incredible local winemakers and the wines they produce.


It doesn’t get better than this.
