April 23, 2012 (Oliver, BC)
A brand new show home, opened to the public on Friday, will mark the official launch of the Canyon Desert development, bringing sought after luxury residences to the community of Oliver, in Canada’s warmest place to live and play - the South Okanagan.
The Canyon Desert development is one of the South Okanagan’s largest new projects to proceed with construction in 2012. Located on the edge of the Osoyoos Indian Band’s NK’MIP Canyon Desert Golf Course, 12 of 17 homes in the first stage have been sold and will be completed in late summer and fall of 2012. Over the next three years, it is expected that the development will host 81 single family resort homes in Phase One of this multi-phase project.

Wine touring in the Okanagan used to be hard work – but not any more. These days, you can divide your time between tasting rooms with a wealth of distractions, from dining on view-kissed patios to visiting artisan cheese or vinegar makers, all of which are taking BC's blossoming wine culture to the next level.
While the north Okanagan has traditionally been the centre of wine activity, a few years back the folks down south decided it was time to get serious. After all, the south Okanagan produces some 65 percent of all grapes grown in the province. Today, newly christened Oliver-Osoyoos Wine Country is truly bursting with activity.

We’re at the Villa at Hester Creek Estate Winery in the Okanagan and as I step out onto the patio of “La Sirena” the Villa’s executive suite, I’m taken aback by the sweeping panorama before me. Below us and to the left is the estate’s wine shop and the valley beyond is carpeted by vineyards of the famous Golden Mile and Black Sage Roads, the fertile land that stretches between Oliver and Osoyoos. Beyond the vineyards, a ridge of hills encloses the valley and in the distance, I spy the upper point of Lake Osoyoos. Not even 10 minutes after our arrival and we open a bottle of wine and settle into our lounge chairs, breathing in the landscape before us.
