Oliver BC is "Canada's Wine Capital" and a big tourism draw. In fact, I'm going there tomorrow for the rest of the week on a little getaway with the wife to do some winery tours with friends. Would have been a good one to have...
i agree, i would have taken it for 10k without blinking, so i’m sure it was quite a bit higher. or else he got one hell of a deal with a very motivated seller.That's a pretty good deal for a first name .COM (and surname + GEO), but I have a feeling the price was right near the top edge of the 5-figure range, like 6-figures CAD.
There's a massive new Dairy Queen in Oliver now so you might like that.i’m definitely not a wine drinker so much of this will be wasted on me.
Yes, I'm just up the road in vernon, its smokey here too. I spent a couple weeks in Oliver last year too, and yes, I like hitting up the veggie and fruit stands across the okanagan, one of the perks of living here. I just pickled 16 lbs of cukes yesterday actually. I'll be buying jalapenos too, I just polished off my last jar. It's so much better making your own pickled jalepenos than the mush you get in jars/cans.There's a massive new Dairy Queen in Oliver now so you might like that.
I drive through Oliver quite often, lots of nice wineries between Osoyoos and OK Falls. The vegetable and fruit stands are getting more produce in now too.
Osoyoos has a new craft brewery called Backroads which is right on the highway in town if beer is more your thing.
It could be a bit smokey if that Osoyoos fire is still going.
I get stuff from Okanagan Spirits Craft Distillery - Local Farm to Glass Spirits here in Vernon, the owner lived down the street from me, but he sold out. They also have one in Kelowna.I'm starting to see more craft distilleries crop up in southern BC too, so you never know.
Forbidden Spirits in Kelowna makes vodka, gin, whisky and brandy from apples.
Sadly, we went there. Wife was sick, didn't want to go out, sat in all day, then late at night got hungry. So DQ it was. The building looks big, but it is a fairly narrow building, and the restaurant part is actually small. Looks like there may be offices or something else in that building. They clearly are still figuring out how to run that place, the service was pretty scattered. Seems to be meant mostly for drive-thru and not so much eat in. They seemed to ignore the in-store customers for oddly long periods of time while you watch them handle order after order at the drive-thru.it is right on the main drag in Oliver, can't believe how big it is.

We are quickly becoming a very insular, anti-social country and soon the act of physically going into a restaurant may be something we tell our grandkids about.
