The drive north on the Okanagan Highway out of Osoyoos is remarkably picturesque. With the spectacular Mount Kobau towering to the left, the land along the highway is dotted with an assortment of orchards, vineyards, and fruit stands. On Road 18, a right turn leads onto a rustic country road. The occasional tractor rumbles by. After a short distance east, Road 18 leads to the Ryegrass Road Bridge, crossing overtop of the gentle flowing Vaseaux Creek. The creek marks the entry to Oliver’s highly sought after Black Sage Bench. Home to esteemed wineries Burrowing Owl Estate, Black Hills Estate, Phantom Creek Estate, Desert Hills Estate, and Church and State Wines, the Black Sage Bench emerges as a highly sought-after viticultural terroir of unparalleled quality.
