Available Now: The Exclusive “Organic Select Sample Pack”

An Exclusive Selection By OkanaganWine.Club & Cover Farms Family Estate


Meet One of Canada Top Organic Wineries!

Covert Farms Family Estate is a certified organic premium winery located south of the McIntyre Bluff heading towards Oliver, BC. Owners Gene and Shelly Covert are continuing as third generation farmers on this sprawling property that was purchased in 1959 by George and Winifred Covert.  They live and breathe the lifestyle of working  with nature. As one of the few organic wineries in the Okanagan, they have developed a reputation for producing high quality, ageable and compelling wines. We are thrilled to be presenting a glimpse into the small and focused portfolio of wines that continually surprise the palate. Covert farms is the largest organic farm in the Okanagan with 650 acres in total with 25 acres under vine.  

Covert Farms Family Estate is certified organic and 100% estate with some biodynamic practices added for good measure. An organic wine is made from grapes that have been grown without the use of artificial herbicides and pesticides. To control weeds and bugs, Gene works with nature by encouraging natural biodiversity in the vineyard.  By allowing this symbiotic ecosystem, the vineyards have shown great disease suppression, better soil fertility and an increase in nutrition.

This sample pack is an introduction to the rich and vibrant terroir in this sustainable microclimate. Covert Farms does a wonderful job of showcasing organic grapes with a natural winemaking style. We are honing in on the striking brightness and clarity of this portfolio, as well as the demonstrated integrity in the winery. You will sample the elegant and exceptional 2016 Sparkling Zinfandel Methode Ancestrale. Due to the hot and dry micro climate at the farm, the reds are particularly special. The sample pack includes 2014 Amicitia which is the flagship and a Bordeaux style blend. You also will try an outstanding 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Reserve. The first 25 orders are fortunate to be getting the 2013 Zinfandel Grand Reserve instead of 2015 MDC.

Hear What Other Okanagan Wine Enthusiasts Are Saying

 

At OkanaganWine.Club, we work hard to give our members a fantastic experience. From the wine quality to the shipping process and beyond, we strive to leave you satisfied with your purchase. That’s why local wine lovers like you are saying things like this:

We’re proud to offer you a great selection of wines and as a member of the Okanagan Wine Club, you’re part of a unique wine experience that has its own Okanagan twist. These and other satisfied club members are proof that buying the best Okanagan wines on the market can be affordable, convenient, and fun.


The Okanagan Wine Club: Bringing You Quality Local Wines You’ll Love

 

Here at the Okanagan Wine Club, we’re passionate about bringing you great local wines from world-renowned and boutique wineries. As wine lovers ourselves, we know how challenging it is to walk into a liquor store and find a new bottle of wine to try (many of our selections CAN’T be found in liquor stores). Will it pair nicely with the meal you’ve planned? Is it a good vintage? We’ve had these questions ourselves, and that’s why we work hard to take the guesswork out of trying new wines. We work directly with some of the Okanagan’s best wineries to hand-select the top seasonal offerings and bring them straight to your door.

What does that mean? It means you can spend less time analyzing your wines and more time enjoying them. It means you’ll never again have to guess whether or not 2011 was a good year for local whites or whether you’re overpaying for that bottle of Merlot. Put away your vintage charts; when you shop through the Okanagan Wine Club, you’ll benefit from our wine experts’ knowledge and experience in choosing great local wines.

 

No Monthly Fee Means You Only Pay for What You Want

 

One common question we often get is what monthly dues we charge to be part of the club. The answer? None. We don’t charge our members any kind of monthly fee whatsoever. Joining the club is absolutely free, and always will be.

The Okanagan Wine Club is not a monthly membership site, and this is important for several reasons:

      – No monthly membership fee means you can try wines at your leisure

      – You can pick and choose the sample packs you want to receive without having to cancel a featured pack (I always forgot to cancel and got stuff I didn’t want)

      – No inventory on hand means we don’t guarantee sales to the wineries, which means they give us their highest quality wine

Our partner wineries know that our current and future club members are passionate about great wine, and that our members represent a significant part of the wine enthusiast community – that means the wineries are proud to present their very best wines to Okanagan Wine Club members


The VIP Lounge: How to Get In

We value all of our members and offer club members a variety of great services, but as a VIP member, you’ll receive several added perks you won’t find anywhere else. Our VIP members benefit from all sorts of bonus offers that the general public won’t ever hear about. VIP members also have priority access to exclusive wine packs, so you can order your wines a full day before the general public and benefit from exclusive deals from our partner organizations.

FAQ

Do I Need to Sign a Contract?

Not at all! Joining the Okanagan Wine Club is entirely free and doesn’t require any paperwork. You have no contract with us and may choose to unsubscribe at any time. We do not trap you into monthly charges…you simply buy the sample packs you want 🙂 Simple.

What Happen If I Want to Leave the Okanagan Wine Club?

 You don’t really have to leave, as you are not in a subscription! You just don’t buy anymore (but we doubt that will happen).

Is This a Connoisseurs-Only Club? Do I Have to Know Anything About Wine to Join the Club?

It can seem intimidating at first to join a wine club when you know nothing about wine, but rest assured you have nothing to fear. The Okanagan Wine Club is proud to offer a variety of educational materials that will help you to become a wine master in no time. Our weekly newsletters and blog articles are full of great information that can help you to better understand the wine world. With these materials, you’ll learn about wine regions, flavour and texture profiles, and all the big industry news. Best of all, it’s written in a beginner-friendly manner that assumes absolutely zero knowledge of wine, wine pairings, or the wine industry. Even if you’re starting fresh with no wine background whatsoever, you’ll love what we have to offer – and you’ll quickly learn everything you need to know.

Best of all, joining the Okanagan Wine Club is completely free and requires no monthly commitment. So even if you’re not a “wine club” person, you can still learn about, enjoy, and discuss the best wines in the Okanagan.

I Only Like One Kind of Wine!

One of the great advantages of joining our wine club is that you’ll be able to try new, boutique wines easier than ever. Perhaps the reason you don’t like white wines, for instance, is because you haven’t yet found the right white. Wines come in many diverse forms and flavour profiles, and by ordering today you get to try 6 new wines.

I Don’t Drink Enough Wine to Justify Joining a Wine Club!

Even if you don’t necessarily drink wine on a regular basis, you probably still celebrate with it, or entertain family and friends. It’s never a bad idea to have a few bottles of wine on hand should some old friends unexpectedly drop in – and by being prepared, you’ll look like a fantastic host. Wine also makes an excellent gift for birthdays and holidays. Invited for a dinner party? Quickly grab a nice bottle with a story to tell. No one will ship you wine automatically. If you order once, that’s it (until you choose to order more).

I’m Afraid to Give Out My Credit Card Number Online!

We understand that e-commerce can be intimidating, and credit card fraud is a real concern. We ensure that the winery in turn has a payment platform that uses secure SSL verification, a security method that prevents third parties from getting your information. SSL verification ensures that your computer only connects to trusted sites that independent third parties have confirmed as reliable. It’s the technological equivalent of keeping your credit card in a box with two different locks protecting it. 

What If I Don’t Like Your Wine?

Here at the Okanagan Wine Club, we strive to bring you the best wine deals in the region – and in support of that mission, we’ve chosen to focus exclusively on cultivating and distributing a great selection of products.  By partnering with several different wineries, we’re able to offer you a wider selection of wines to try and enjoy.

Sadly, this means we have no control over the wine making process, and therefore we cannot guarantee the quality of each individual bottle. However, many of our partner wineries do allow you to return wine directly to the winery if the quality has been compromised. If you are unsatisfied with your wine purchase or the quality of your wine, please email us to help you solve the issue.

There’s A Specific Kind of Wine I Want, But You Don’t Offer It!

The great freedom we offer over traditional wine membership sites is that you, the user, are free to order the wine packs you want and decline the wine packs you don’t want. So thankfully, you’re not obligated to buy a wine you don’t think you’ll enjoy (we encourage trying new wines).

Here at the Okanagan Wine Club, we try to come out with new offers every two weeks. If you don’t see your preferred wine in our offers, send us an email and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.

Where am I Purchasing The Wine?

You are purchasing wine directly from the winery. All on their site but we are working closely with the wineries to ensure that OWC members get treated as true VIPs and enjoy a quality experience every time.

Offer Ends on July 8th @ Midnight – Reserve this pack

This offer ends on July 8th at midnight and it won’t be available again, so don’t delay! We sincerely hope that you’ll enjoy these wines as much as we do, and we’d love to hear what you have to say about tasting notes, great pairings, and more…
