NOVEMBER 1, 2019 – Silvergate San Marcos — a premier senior living retirement community – treated more than two dozen local seniors on Friday, November 1st, 2019 to a wine country excursion in the Temecula Valley to explore the region’s storied past and discover its rich wine-making traditions. The group embarked on a full day of wine-tasting, fun and lively conversation after hearing a local historian speak about the people and history of the region.
In just under an hour, the group of Silvergate seniors were 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 Joan Darmakian, a current resident of San Marcos, “but this is one of the best 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 the California Missions, the stagecoaches that traveled through the area, the local Native American Indians, the gold-rush days and the Vail Cattle Ranch all affected the region.
“We’re delighted to be able to host events and outings like this for prospective residents of Silvergate Fallbrook,” said Joan Rink-Carroll, Executive Director for the senior living community. “Silvergate really delivers on its promise to foster an active lifestyle in retirement. These local residents are 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 organizers shared a look at its upcoming Holiday event with attendees, including a winter excursion to the Hotel Del Coronado for a Holiday Luncheon in December. The company believes these custom-tailored events along with a bevy of other community activities, amenities and benefits are what set Silvergate San Marcos apart in the marketplace.
Hosting events like this day trip to wine country is likely one of the reasons why Silvergate San Marcos has been voted a “Favorite” by readers of the San Diego Union Tribune in their annual Readers Poll for more than 10 years running. This year, Silvergate Retirement Residence & Memory Care communities were honored in both the Retirement/Independent Living Community and the Assisted Living Community categories.
