OCTOBER 16, 2019 – Soon-to-be residents of Silvergate Rancho Bernardo — a new luxury senior living retirement community — spent a balmy afternoon on Wednesday, October 16, 2019 exploring the historical milestones of the Temecula Valley and its rich wine-making traditions. An intimate group of nearly 40 future residents embarked on a full day of wine-tasting, fun and lively conversation after hearing a local historian speak about the history of the region.
In just under an hour, the Silvergate group was whisked up the road for an afternoon luncheon and wine-tasting event at Ponte Winery, one of the premier vintners in the region. Tasting Room Manager, Ty Tyler, led the group through a spirited discussion about the grape varietals grown in Temecula, the art and science of wine tasting and the sheer enjoyment that comes with imbibing the centuries old beverage. He also told the group about how wine country in Temecula has grown from a small hand-full of wineries at its inception to more than 50 wineries today.
“I’ve been to a lot of senior community events,” said Jack Hammond, a current resident of Scripps Ranch, “but this is by far one of the nicest events I’ve been to. Silvergate really goes all out to make sure that we have a good time and enjoy the day. The food is always excellent at their outings and the speakers today gave interesting talks about the historical events and landmarks of this part of California. I’m so glad I decided to join in today.”
Guest speaker Steve Williamson, a long-time docent from the Temecula Valley Museum, shared facts and interesting stories about how the California Missions, the stagecoaches that traveled through the area, the local Indians, the gold-rush days and the Vail Cattle Ranch all affected the region.
“We’re especially excited to continue hosting this special series of events and outings for the Depositors of Silvergate Rancho Bernardo,” said Pamela Rundle, Marketing Director for the senior living community. “Silvergate is already delivering on its promise to foster an active lifestyle in retirement. These residents haven’t even moved in yet, but they’re already finding out that Silvergate offers so many opportunities to make connections and develop meaningful friendships. We delighted to see future residents meeting one another and friendships blossoming as we all spend time together.”
Silvergate Rancho Bernardo shared a look at upcoming Depositor-only events with attendees that include a winter excursion to the Hotel Del Coronado for a Holiday Luncheon in December and a springtime outing for an upcoming play at the Old Globe Theater in San Diego. The company believes these custom-tailored events along with a bevy of other community activities, amenities and benefits are what set Silvergate Rancho Bernardo apart in the marketplace.
