Winery Spotlight: Covert Farms

June 18th, 2018 Posted by blog, Okanagan, Wine No Comment yet

Nestled in the hills of Oliver, BC, Covert Farms is a 4th generation family farm and winery, sprawling over 650 acres.

Proudly an organic estate, Covert Farms uses a natural fermentation process to focus on the vineyard and fruit, and minimally intervenes during the wine making process. All of Covert Farms wines are made using organic grapes that are grown on their farm. To control pest insects on their farm, Covert has released Ladybugs, who happily return year after year. You can learn more about Covert Farms’ harvesting process throughout the season, including why they planted Sunflowers to control grape-eating birds, HERE. Covert Farm’s wine portfolio currently includes a Roussanne/Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon, Rosé, and their proprietary red blends, The Bluff, MDC and the iconic, Amicitia.

The Covert Farms property is also home to Seacrest Organic Produce. After turning their focus to winemaking in 2014, the Covert’s leased the management of their organic produce to Seacrest Organics. Available for purchase, or you can pick-it-yourself, Seacrest Organics only offers in season produce, with their goal being to support a healthy community and help to grow agri-tourism within the South Okanagan.

You can learn more about Covert Farms on a guided tour. Take a ride in a vintage 1952 Mercury truck as you drive through the farm, enjoy some organic produce, and of course, sample some wine! You’ll get to pick your own strawberries, feed the long-horned cows, and snack on some charcuterie, while you taste different wines.

Covert Farms is also licensed to hold weddings, concerts, corporate events, and intimate dinners! A popular destination thanks to its secluded location and acres of natural landscape for photos. As an added bonus, Covert Farms has an extra large inflatable trampoline on their property, which is guaranteed to loosen anyone up and put a smile on their face!
