Can I buy a home using a reverse mortgage? By Beth Miller-Rowe

Branch Manager and Reverse Mortgage Specialist • The Reverse Mortgage Group • A Division of American Pacific Mortgage

First, let me welcome you to the beautiful city of Brentwood. As people are looking for a active retirement community, Brentwood and the surrounding areas have so much to offer. You are in the country, but with all the amenities you could ask for, and you are still just a hop, skip and a jump from the Bay Area, Sacramento and Napa.

I have had the honor of working with many clients who are downsizing from the big family home in the Bay Area, and lucky for them, they are walking away with a whole bunch of cash after the sale of ‘the big house’. I recently worked with a lovely couple from Aptos. We started working together in December 2016, as they were going into contract on their new home in Brentwood. Even though the home was not going to be completed for six months, we went through all the qualifying requirements, so they could rest easy throughout the construction phase.

We then talked about logistics. Is it better to pay cash for the new house and then do the reverse mortgage? Or is it better to use the R4P – Reverse for Purchase program? There are pros and cons to doing it either way. For them, it worked out cleaner and smoother to pay cash, and the week after they moved in, we started the reverse mortgage process. The process can, and commonly does, work as one transaction as well. Meaning we use the true Reverse for Purchase program, as it was originally designed. You put approximately 50 to 60 percent down on the new house, and the remainder comes from the reverse mortgage.

What this means is you buy your affect the rest of your life.

Reverse mortgages are loans offered to homeowners who are 62 or older who have equity in their homes. The loan programs allow borrowers to defer payment on the loans until they pass away, sell the home, or move out. Homeowners, however, remain responsible for the payment of taxes, insurance, maintenance, and other items. Nonpayment of these items can lead to a default under the loan terms and ultimate loss of the home. FHA insured reverse mortgages have an up front and ongoing cost; ask your loan officer for details.

Picnic at Marsh Creek, July 1888



The Magic Of East County


More than 100 years ago, Native Americans called the East County area home. The Bay Miwok and Yokut Indians preceded Spanish explorer Pedro Fages, who in 1772, led the first European parties through the area. More than a century passed before European settlers arrived to put down roots. ANTIOCH On Sept. 16, 1850, the first settlers arrived at the foot of what is now F Street in Antioch. The town was named after the ancient, biblical city in Syria. The town incorporated in February 1872, with a population of only 600. The year 1876 saw the introduction of a narrow-gauge railway between Antioch and the mining town of Stewartsville 6 miles to the south, at the site of today’s Black

Diamond Mines Regional Preserve. In 1851, Antioch got its first school, provided by a ship owner who donated the galley of his beached vessel to serve as the building. Some of Antioch’s early businesses included brick kilns, coal mining, a copper smelter, several potteries and a distillery. By the early 1900s, Antioch was only about 700 residents strong, but the population began to skyrocket in the 1920s with the construction of the Antioch Bridge and Fulton Shipyards. During World War II, 27 vessels were built in Antioch for the U.S. Navy. By 1970, Antioch had grown to 28,500 residents. Built on inexpensive land, residential development further increased the citizenry to an estimated 47,000 by the mid-1980s. Today, the population tops 114,000.

BRENTWOOD One of the first pioneers to settle in the Brentwood area was a doctor named John Marsh. He built a stately mansion out of stone, which still stands today on Marsh Creek Road. Marsh was murdered in 1856 before he ever moved into the house. The name Brentwood is believed to have come from the Marsh family’s hometown of Brentwood, England. City development was hastened by the discovery of coal in the Mount Diablo foothills. By 1874, the first structures were popping up on Oak Street. Fertile soils and the coming of the railroad in 1890 helped make the area the largest shipping point for grain between New Orleans and San Francisco. The English land

speculation company Balfour Guthrie installed a vast irrigation system that improved land values, allowing farmers to grow row crops and fruit trees and firmly establish the town’s agricultural core. Brentwood incorporated as a city in 1948. It remained a small agricultural community until the last decade of the century, when its proximity to the financial centers of the Bay Area and its relatively affordable housing triggered rapid growth. The population grew nearly five times from 1990 to today’s 62,000-plus, bringing a suburban lifestyle and the related influx of goods and services to the formerly rural area. Efforts to preserve its agricultural heritage continues today.

OAKLEY The discovery of Native American artifacts in Big Break clearly establishes Oakley as a site of that earlier culture. The first evidence of European settlers in the city can be traced to Randolph C. Marsh, one of its first landowners (no relation to pioneer Dr. John Marsh. In 1897, Marsh arrived and foresaw that the area could produce successful crops. He purchased 12 acres of land, plotted the town and named the first five streets Main, Acme, Ruby, Star and Home, spelling MARSH with the initials of each street name. Nicknamed “sandlappers” by critics who said crops would never grow in the sandy soil, the early settlers proved otherwise, turning Oakley into a bountiful source of fresh

fruits and vegetables. In the 1930s, Oakley’s Main Street was dotted with packing sheds, and agriculture was shipped via the railroad throughout the nation. Oakley became a city in 1999. DISCOVERY BAY Discovery Bay is a unique community in Contra Costa County. The idea was born in 1970, when the Veronica Development Company envisioned a water-oriented community where you could “live where you play,” which became the town’s motto. Those who put their faith in the project haven’t been sorry. Lots they purchased for $15,000 have sold in recent years for 10 to 15 times that amount. Developer Ken Hofmann

It was named Stone Tract. Ten years later, he sold the land to Maj. William K. Bethel, who used it to grow feed for the dairy herd on the island. Though it was officially named in 1898, Bethel Island actually became an island in the 1890s when surrounding sloughs were dredged. The Bethel Island Bridge, a onelane wooden plank structure, was built in 1918. During this same time, the island was farmed by William J. Hotchkiss who purchased 1,317 acres to grow potatoes, beans and sugar beets. During the 1920s and ’30s, Bethel Island became known as a fishing paradise and haven for hunters. Harbors were built along the island’s waterfront, and recreation flourished. Electricity was first brought to the island in 1946. In 2010, a new Bethel Island bridge replaced the aging wooden structure that provided the only access to the island. BYRON

BETHEL ISLAND In 1860, a Mr. Stone reclaimed the land known as Bethel Island under the Swamp and Over Flowed Act of 1855.

The town of Byron was founded in 1878, when the San Pablo and Tulare Railroad Company built a track connecting Contra Costa and San

Joaquin counties, though settlers had been in the area for many years. After finding no luck in the Sierra Nevada gold mines, German immigrant Henry Wilkening built a house on land he purchased near a planned railroad station. He became Byron’s first postmaster and built the town’s first hotel, saloon and livery stable. In the 1860s, R.O. Risdon discovered the Byron Hot Springs. His nephew, Lewis Risdon Mead, discovered more than 50 springs, ranging in temperature from 52 to 140 degrees. Mead developed the now-idle Byron Hot Springs, popular with the rich and famous in the 1920s and ’30s. In 1938, the resort was closed and sold to the government, which used it as a prisoner of war interrogation center during World War II. The property currently remains unoccupied.


opened sales in 1978, and buyers slept in the streets in order to get the lot of their choice. In 1984, Discovery Bay unveiled its crown jewel: an 18-hole championship golf course. The final bays of the original Discovery Bay development opened in 1988. In 1997, Discovery Bay became a community services district, assuming oversight of most of its own activities beyond land-use decisions and emergency services. Land-use regulations and police services are overseen by the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors, while fire service is provided by the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District. The expansion of the community, Discovery Bay West, began in 2000, at which time the official name of the community became The Town of Discovery Bay. In 2007, Discovery Bay was granted its own ZIP code, 94505, as its population grew past 17,000.

KNIGHTSEN Knightsen was founded in 1898, when the Sante Fe Railroad made its preliminary survey through the area. George W. Knight, a native of Maine, purchased 110 acres of land from Lazarus Barkley, acreage that

Liberty head coach Ryan Partridge celebrates after Liberty defeated Freedom 37-0 to win the North Coast Section Division 1 championship.



Touchdown! Making Football History


In 2017, Liberty football players entered the North Coast Section (NCS) Division 1 championship game knowing they could be the first squad in the school’s 115-year history to win a section crown. And the Lions didn’t let the opportunity pass them by. Liberty (11-2) rolled to a 37-0 victory, securing the school its first section championship. “This town is so thick with alumni who care about our school, and this one is for them,” said first-year Liberty head coach Ryan Partridge. The Lions dominated Freedom (9-3) on both sides of the ball, building a 427-39 total-yard advantage by the game’s end and leaving no doubt about the outcome. Liberty junior running back Tyerell Sturges-Cofer led the Lions’ offensive attack with 28 carries for 255 yards and three touchdowns. Senior receiver Sione Vaki scored twice more, helping Liberty end its season in historic fashion. “I just did whatever coach told me,” Sturges-Cofer said. “If he wanted me to run, I would run. If he wanted me to jump, I would jump.”

Liberty built a 16-0 halftime lead – scoring on Johan Diaz’s 32-yard field goal, Sturges-Cofer’s 6-yard scamper and Vaki’s 32-yard catch and run – on its final three first-half possessions. The Lions then opened the second half with a comeback-killing 79-yard, 8-minute 25-second drive that put them comfortably ahead 23-0 on Sturges-Cofer’s 9-yard run. Sturges-Cofer’s 44-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter and Vaki’s 7-yard catch later in the quarter capped the Lions’ impressive 37-0 win. “This is the best feeling I have had in a while,” said quarterback Jay Butterfield, who finished with 142 passing yards in only his fourth start of the season. “The defense played a heck of a game today – put up a goose egg. It’s great to be out here with all the people I love.” The Lions’ three playoff wins over Heritage, San Leandro and Freedom were their second over the squads this season, and they came in dominating fashion. Liberty defeated the three teams by a combined 82-70 score during the regular season but by a 106-27 margin in the playoffs.

“The coaching staff – it’s kind of like we start drooling when we get to play them twice,” said Partridge. “The coaching staff did a heck of a job breaking down film … the mentality is there in the kids. They knew they could win; knew they could beat them.” After the Lions’ victory, coaches and players rejoiced on the field, hugging each other and hoisting the championship plaque and banner. “At the beginning of the season, we knew in our minds that we were going to go far, but we didn’t know it was going to come out like this,” said senior wide receiver Zane Hinojosa. “We worked for it, and we deserve it.” The win was extra special for Liberty defensive coordinator Brian Reel, a Liberty graduate who watched his unit hold Freedom’s offense at bay – not surrendering a first down until late in the second quarter. “We were able to build throughout the year different personnel groups to match down and distance, and it was the biggest difference in the world,” Partridge said. “Coach Reel did a phenomenal job moving personnel in and out, and they couldn’t catch up with us.” W

Enrico Cinquini was named District 11 Veteran of the Year for his service in World War II. The war stories he shares brings history to life.

up the negative and had a signed copy sent to Cinquini, where it sits in his office to this day. When the war was finally over, Cinquini married his sweetheart and pen pal Rose in 1947 and went on to raise a family and become a vital part of his Oakley community.  Yet, three-fourths of a century later, the experiences still consume a significant portion of his memories, and it’s mainly other veterans with war experience who can offer him solace when he needs to talk. “You carry these stories with you, but the worst part is when you see your friends die,” he said. “When I saw death for the first time, I threw up. As time went on, I could sit next to a corpse covered in maggots and eat a can of meat and beans. You see death so many times, you get used to it, and they ingrained it in us: kill or be killed. When I got home, I didn’t have no feelings.” Cinquini said it took about six or seven months after his return to get his emotions back, and he knew he could feel again when he broke into tears one day. When asked what made him cry, he laughed.  “Just some stupid movie,” he said. W


While fighting in Peleliu, Cinquini was a runner to Col. Lewis “Chesty” Puller who was a highly decorated legend of a Marine. “I fought in the same foxhole with that guy there,” said Cinquini of Puller.  Cinquini recalled Peleliu as a tough place where a lot of men were lost but also where he met a famous individual. In all the madness while the Marines were under fire, a man called out, asking if anyone was from San Francisco.  “And I’m thinking, ‘What kind of a nut is this?’” Cinquini said, but he and his friend replied, and the man jumped into the ditch with them. “He said, ‘Oh, you guys are getting killed! I got to get out of here.’ But first, he took our names and photo.” As it turned out, the photographer was none other than The Chronicle’s Joe Rosenthal, whose iconic ‘Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima’ photo is still regarded as one of the most significant and recognizable images of war. The photo of Cinquini and his comrade later appeared in The Chronicle. Years later, Cinquini called Rosenthal, not expecting him to remember that day in the ditch, but he had. Rosenthal dug


Oakley icon Enrico “Rico” Cinquini, was honored in July as the District 11 Veteran of the Year, at an event in Sacramento. Here at home, the 93-year-old World War II Marine was also recognized with a special reception which included the Warrior Watch Riders, local and state officials and longtime friends and admirers. At first, Cinquini wasn’t sure about arriving to his special evening flanked by the club of motorcyclists that offers to accompany veterans to various events. “I thought, that’s going overboard,” Cinquini said, modestly, but as one of the few remaining veterans from World War II, with a legacy of stories, his friends convinced him to take the offer. At only 18 years old, a young Cinquini decided to enlist in the Marines, telling his parents in Italian he wanted to serve his country. But his battle-hardened father, who had served in World War I, looked over his son and said, “È morto.” Meaning simply “he’s dead.” Cinquini’s mother broke into tears, but he was determined to serve despite the coming hardships.

The Legend Of The Byron Hot Springs


At the end of a winding road on the outskirts of Byron, sits an abandoned brick structure. Its skeletal frame towers into the sky and its blackened windows peer down onto the once prosperous property. To many, the building looks like a scene from a horror film in which graffiti vandals go to scrawl their names before meeting an untimely demise. But to local history buffs, the ruins tell the story of the Byron Hot Springs Hotel’s enigmatic past – one full of eerie twists and turns. Long before the hotel came to be, its land was known for the natural sulfurous and salty springs that were popular with indigenous people who enjoyed the soothing properties of the bubbling waters. In 1863, just as the California Gold Rush was dying down,

the Risdon family established the Saline Salt Manufacturing and Mining Company. When the business was no longer economically sustainable, the area reverted to an informal gathering where people bathed and drank the water. With campers trespassing on their property, the Risdon family decided to develop the area with bathhouses and lodgings. But the unexpected death of the land’s owner and developer, Orange Risdon Jr., in 1873 would set the stage for lengthy intra-family court proceedings as Risdon had no wife or heirs. Lewis Mead, Risdon’s nephew, was eventually granted title to the property, as he had previously served as administrator of the estate and leased the land to Amanda E. Gallagher, who is credited with building

more bathhouses over several of the springs. After securing ownership, he had the Mead cottage built on the property, along with lavish gardens. In 1878, the first official hotel was built of wood at an astronomical cost of $50,000, and early brochures touted it as “pre-eminently the natural sanitarium of California and the Pacific Coast.” Visitors were said to have stayed for prices ranging from $12 to $21 per week. But bad luck befell the family when a fire destroyed the hotel in 1901. Not wasting any time, the second hotel was built in 1902 – a framed-stucco structure with features of Spanish and Moorish architecture and American construction design – and the Byron Hot Springs was officially incorporated in 1903.

ting off a chain reaction of sales. Upon reaching its 100th anniversary of the first hotel’s construction, the ownership shifted yet again in 1978 to Mansour Hakimi, whose assets were frozen and lost shortly after purchase. Other hopefuls endeavored to restore the historic hotel, only to be plagued by additional illnesses and other circumstances barring restoration success. The history of this iconic structure has intrigued both visitors and residents over the years, and whispers of yet another redevelopment plan have been heard throughout East County. For now, the old brick building with its mysterious history sits ghost-like upon the hill, looming over a barbed-wire gate awaiting its next chapter. W


erty to John Tait. During the roaring ’20s, Tait transformed the area into a vacation destination for socialites from the city and Hollywood stars such as Clark Gable and Fatty Arbuckle. After a decade of glitz and glamor, the hotel experienced yet another twist in its lengthy history when the U.S. commandeered it as a prisoner interrogation center during World War II. In 1946, the site transformed again when it was purchased by the Greek Orthodox church and named Mission Saint Paul with the hopes it would become a retreat for spiritual cleansing and the center of religious activity. Ultimately, the vision for the monastery was not realized, and the church sold the property in 1956, set-


Visitors flocked from around the world to sample the waters found at this health resort nestled in California’s prime agricultural land. Yet, shortly after incorporation, Mead’s wife died at the hotel and another fire in 1912, destroyed the second hotel. The third structure was built in 1914 with four stories and brick to protect it from more ravaging flames. But the brick couldn’t protect the Mead family from additional loss. In 1916, Mead’s son, who was the resident physician at the Byron Hot Springs, died at the springs of “softening of the brain,” and Mead himself died the following year. The business carried on, managed under Mead’s second wife, who remarried architect James Reid and later moved away, leasing the prop-

Discovering the Delta with Captain Morgan & Crew


hen your last name’s Morgan and you own a boat, there’s not much left to decide. At least that’s how Frank Morgan, owner of Captain Morgan’s Delta Adventures, saw it. “I’ve got the name and I’m a licensed captain so yeah, it seemed like a natural fit.” Morgan’s pirate ship is the Rosemarie – named in honor of his mother who passed away in 2011 – a 55-foot newly remodeled houseboat equipped to whisk patrons away for cruising adventures up and down the Delta. Adventurers can book

the Rosemarie for both hourly and overnight adventures with up to 35 guests, or simply procure a couple of tickets to one of the many pre-planned adventures the Captain has posted on his website. Captain Morgan and his crew can also customize cruises for you and your guests such as their Great Gatsby themed cruise. Cruises can be as simple as exploring the various bays of Discovery Bay, or setting course up Old River where the Captain radios the Bridge Tender at the Orwood Railroad Bridge to open the bridge so the

Rosemarie can pass under it. Cruises out on the open Delta provide panoramic views from the top deck of the Rosemarie. According to Captain Morgan, “one of our most exciting new adventures is our 4-day and 3-night mid-week adventure (you pick the dates) called “Discovering the Delta” - for up to 35 guests”. On this multiple-day adventure, the Captain combines both water and land excursions so guests can enjoy a relaxing, educational and fun adventure like none other on the Delta.

For Morgan and wife Melinda – the Rosemarie’s resident “wench” – the adventure cruises are all about showcasing the beautiful sites in and around the Delta. “This is not really about making money; it’s about letting people experience the Delta and enjoy themselves,” said Morgan. “It’s already been a lot of fun; we’re looking forward to the rest.” To book a cruise or for additional information, call 925.383.5346 or visit www.CaptainMorgansDelta – Advertorial

Art, Jazz & Wine Festival The Brentwood Art Society took its yearly event Art, Wine & Jazz Festival back to its traditional location in downtown Brentwood last year, and the new amount of space proved to enhance the show’s capacity. “We’re a very traditional organization that has stayed the same from year to year,” said Jack Gaughan, a member of the society’s board and one of the festival coordinators. The funds earned from the festival directly benefit the Brentwood Library, the Brentwood Theatre Company, art docent programs for local schools and scholarship funds with a portion of it kept as reserve to seed for the next year’s event.

Taking The Trails Challenge


This year marks the 25th anniversary of the East Bay Regional Park District’s (EBRPD) signature outdoor activity program, Trails Challenge.  Launched in 1993 to get East Bay residents moving outdoors and exploring their trails, the program makes it easy for hikers of all abilities to get to know their regional parks. Trails Challenge is a free program supported through financial contributions from the EBRPD, Kaiser Permanente and the Regional Parks Foundation. “The 2017 Trails Challenge was great,” said Hayward resident and 2017 participant, Diane Petersen. “I’ve been hiking at the same park forever (Mission Peak), and Trails Challenge got me out to other amazing parks in the region. My pups especially liked the Trails Challenge, because they got to go to new parks with new sniffs.” To complete the 2018 Trails Challenge, participants need to hike a marathon’s length of trails (26.2 miles) or at least five of the 20 designated hikes in the Trails Challenge guidebook. “Trails Challenge is about people getting outdoors and connecting with nature,” said David Zuckermann, interpretive and recreation services

manager. “Hiking is one of the best ways people can enjoy our Regional Parks.” Each year, a new Trails Challenge guidebook highlights 20 different trails throughout the parks. From shorelines to ridgetops, there is something for everyone. A handy matrix helps readers choose from easy, medium or challenging hikes and identifies trails accessible to wheelchair users and those that allow dogs, bikes or horses. “The Trails Challenge guidebook was especially helpful,” said Petersen. “The guidebook allowed me to pick a hike with a level of difficulty that matched how I felt that day.” Participation in Trails Challenge is easy – no online registration is required. Free printed guidebooks and T-shirts are also available at participating visitor centers while supplies last. This year, all 20 trails are featured on the free mobile app AllTrails. To use the app, participants should download the app, sign up and log in. Then visit, click “Copy to my lists” and then click “Continue in App.” The featured trails will show under “Lists” in “Plan.” The 2018 featured hikes are located in the following parks: • Black Diamond Mines Regional Preserve,  Antioch

A Bountiful Region


With each passing season, East County continues to develop and mature, as the population increases and more businesses find their niche in our backyard. Crops of houses have replaced many of the fields where fruit and vegetables once grew, but agriculture is still very much alive and well in East County. The Pacific Coast Farmers Market Association certifies annual farmers markets in Antioch and Brentwood. Antioch’s Somersville Towne Center Farmers Market, located in the Towne Center parking lot off Somersville Road, is open on Sundays, from May through October. The downtown Brentwood Farmers Market is scheduled to open in early March and close in mid-November. For farmers markets dates and times, visit, which is updated weekly to let you know which vendors will be present that week. Tess’ Community Farm Kitchen in Brentwood has added another layer to the farm-fresh experience here in East County. Offering cooking classes, fresh food items and room for public and private events, Tess’ is a perfect

complement to the popular and prolific agricultural bounty. Another local farm that grows more than just produce is First Generation Farmers (FGF). FGF is a nonprofit, community and teaching farm that works to grow a new generation of farmers. FGF makes fresh produce affordable for everyone, with an unmanned farm stand that is open from dusk to dawn, with a ‘take what you need and donate what you can’ model. Local supermarkets offer plenty of produce already picked and packaged for your dining pleasure, but East County offers foodies the special experience of gathering their own delectable delights straight from the orchard, from Bing cherries at Laird Ranch to apricots at Enos Family Farms. During the summer, more than 30 produce stands offer scrumptious fruits, vegetables, jams, nuts, herbs and seasonings, plus oils and vinegars. Stands continue to grow and offer a greater variety of products every year. In 2007, the county passed an ordinance allowing growers to sell items not grown on the premises,

such as water, soft drinks and pies, alongside their homegrown goods. A list of all the local growers can be found at the Harvest Time website – While there are loads of local goodies to munch on, an impressive array of high-quality wine grapes are also grown right here in East County. In 2004, the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors approved agricultural rezoning to allow local vineyards to feature wine-tasting rooms on their property. Local vintners offering tastings include Hannah Nicole Vineyards in Brentwood, Campos Family Vineyards in Byron and Petersen Vineyards in Knightsen to name a few. A variety of local wines may also be tasted and purchased at Brentwood’s Co. Co. County Wine Company on First Street in Brentwood. If you’re looking to share the flavors of Contra Costa County with friends and family who are unaware of its agricultural wonders, buy a gift basket from McCauley Brothers Olives Groves or Gursky Ranch Country Store. Grab some treats to share with friends and neighbors. W

Growing Wine At Petersen Vineyards East County wine enthusiasts have a new winery close to home where they can savor wine amid a gorgeous backdrop of rolling hills and Mount Diablo. Petersen Vineyards, a familyowned winery in Knightsen, specializes in red and port wines made with Portuguese, Spanish and California varietals. Although the family has been making wine for five seasons, 2017 was the first year they began to sell their blends.   “A small winery has to compete on quality, and I was certain from the beginning the quality of the wine starts with the grapes going into the must (juice of freshly pressed grapes),” said Peter Petersen, winemaker and owner

of Petersen Vineyards. Peter was an electronical engineer who designed cell phones, design chips for cell phones and test equipment for Wi-Fi before giving up his tech career to pursue his dream of making wine.  He and his wife, Pauline, purchased the property in Knightsen and began working on their new family business in 2012. Petersen Vineyards sits on 20 acres with 12 acres of grapes and 3 acres of cherries. As a complete estate winery, the Petersens grow and process their own grapes and make and bottle their own wine.  “Due to our focus on port wine, we grow special grapes with origins in Portugal and Spain,” said Peter. “These

unique grapes lend for fantastic, fullbodied and robust red wines.” While researching equipment for his winery, Peter learned that many wineries leave a lot of unwanted material – referred to as MOG (material other than grapes) – in the must. According to Peter, machine harvested and processed wines can contain 5 to 7 percent MOG, which includes stems, leaves, shot grapes, birds nests, small insects and other unwanted materials. “That did not seem acceptable to me,” said Peter. “I chose equipment that allows me to remove it all – virtually zero percent MOG – and the result is no harshness or bitter-tannic wine and a more smooth wine with

Local vintners display their awardwinning wines. From left; Peter Petersen, Sofia Tamayo, Campos Vineyards Sales Manager Victor Brandstraten, Ric Campos, Becky Bloomfield and Don Wedel.

Award-Winning Vintners Those in search of a lauded vintage can easily find one with a short drive to any of the area’s tasting rooms. Rich soil and abundant sunshine create the perfect growing conditions for the East County cabernets and zinfandels, which have won medals at notable wine competitions all over the world.



One family with agricultural roots is the Bloomfield clan. Becky Bloomfield, co-owner of Co. Co. County Wine Company, married into the family, which has been farming hundreds of acres here since the 1940s.


“My sons are fourth generation (farmers) here, and I’ve been making wine since 2004 myself,” Bloomfield said. She recently won awards for her 2015 vintage viognier, her 2014 cabernet, her 2016 chardonnay and pinot grigio and a blend she calls Devil’s Daughter. Her collection of gold and silver awards comes from notable competitions like the California State Fair (CSF), the Central Coast Wine Competition and the San Francisco Chronical Wine Competition (SFCWC). For more information, visit www. or call 925-634-9463. One name a little newer to the East County wine game is Campos. Michelle and Ric Campos purchased Leer Vineyards in Byron in 2016. Since then, they’ve done more than just

change the name on the label. “Campos Vineyards has won two awards for our estate petite sirah, one of them from an international competition in New York,” Michelle Campos said. This year, she is submitting all their wines to the SFCWC and the CSF. Campos Vineyards is known for its fine wines and variety of events, both public and private. For tasting-room hours and more information, visit or call 925-308-7963. In Oakley, Petersen Vineyards has been working on making a name for itself. A family-owned, full-estate winery, Petersen Vineyards is in its fifth year and specializes in red and port wines. “We’ve entered two competitions and won awards for our three reds,” said Britney Sandoval, whose father is the family winemaker. “We grow, bottle and produce everything here.” Petersen said that as the vineyard grows, they will continue to enter both local and national competitions. For more information, or to schedule a free tasting, visit www.petersenvineyards. com or call 925-890-4891. Also located in Oakley is Wedl Wine Cellars. Focusing on just one thing and doing it well, co-owners Don

Wedl and John Dobleman make only zinfandel. “Our current wine, which we have just started to release, is our 2014 vintage zinfandel,” said Dobleman. “It won a silver at the SFCWC last year.” Previous vintages have also won awards in competitions as far as New York. The last vintage year available to the public and submitted to competitions is 2014, as the pair has decided to move into retirement and make wine just for themselves. For more information, visit or call 925550-8541. A short drive to the south is Tamayo Family Vineyards. Known for estate-grown red, Cana and Tamayo crafts, its wine from as many as eight varietals is grown on the estate. “We’ve won scads of awards over the years,” said Sara Tamayo, proprietor. “We have eight grandchildren, and they all have wines named after them. Every one of the grandchildren’s wines has received awards.” Tamayo said she always enters her wines in the Central Valley Wine Competition, where they have won numerous golds and silvers.

The Farm-To-Fork Experience



Agriculture may be at the root of East County’s history, but it’s also at the core of forward-thinking business models that place a focus on locally sourced goods. Instead of waiting for shipments of produce to come in from out of town or state, some savvy restaurants have been plucking the opportunity to offer their patrons the freshest food, while supporting local farmers. Below are some area dining experiences offering a farmto-fork experience.


Tess’ Community Farm Kitchen Venture into the outskirts of Brentwood, where the land is still lined with rows of crops, and you’ll find this local’s best-kept secret. Tess’ Community Farm Kitchen carries fresh and local produce, wine, specialty beers and cheeses, honey, lavender, oils and more. The farm kitchen also hosts events and classes. “I had a strong vision that I had to build a place for the community,” said owner Barbara Frantz, who named the business after her mother. “I wanted a place that felt like home but connected and educated people about food and celebrated the lives we live.” Tess’ Community Farm Kitchen is located at 8091 Balfour Road, in Brentwood. For more information, visit Attraversiamo Also known by many as ‘Attra,’ this restaurant opened August 2017 with the goal of fostering a working relationship with area farmers while crafting a gourmet menu. The owners proudly boast produce from Frog Hollow Farm, G&S Farms, First Generation Farmers, Knoll Farms, Miss Bee Haven Honey, Smith Family Farm and other local farms. “We try to showcase the hard work of all the farmers who work so hard in

our area,” said Alyssa Roost, who owns the restaurant with her husband, Anthony Roost. “When guests dine with us, they’re really benefiting their local farms and what’s in their backyard.” Attraversiamo is located at 2485 Sand Creek Road, Suite 140, in Brentwood. For more information, visit www. Bistro Punahele Tonnelier While the doors for this restaurant are set to open this year, residents and the City of Oakley are chomping at the bit to see what the Tonnelier family will unveil. Combining the flavors of the couple’s homelands, Stephane and Sydney Tonnelier’s menu will showcase dishes from France and Hawaii in this unique farm-tofork spin. The restaurant will be located in one of downtown Oakley’s oldest buildings which the couple plans to renovate, while keeping with the old-world heritage of the little brick building off Main Street. With a crisp, new menu planned for the big day, Bistro Punehele Tonnelier will feature everything from guava chiffon pancakes and maman ratatouille crepes to kalua pork sliders and coconut fried rice among others in their locally sourced variety. “We know Oakley is more like us – working families,” said Stephane. “In working with local farmers, we plan to bring fresh, gourmet food to the community at an affordable price.” Bistro Punahele Tonnelier will open its doors later this year at 3530 Main St., in Oakley. For more information, visit www. Vine + Grain With several dozen wines and a robust list of craft beers to choose from, this Brentwood hotspot has earned a name for itself in the few years it has been open. While patrons relax and sip, they can also

find ‘bites to share’ on the menu, which is rooted in East County agriculture. “We wanted to raise the bar here in Brentwood, so people wouldn’t have to leave town to enjoy an authentic night out or eat farm-to-fork in a community so rich in agriculture,” said Anthony Roost, who co-owns the establishment with his wife Alyssa Roost. The restaurant is open Wednesday through Saturday, 1 to 11 p.m., and Sunday, 1 to 7 p.m. Visitors can find live music every Wednesday night, from 6 to 9 p.m. Serviceindustry personnel and teachers receive 10 percent off their bill all day on Thursdays. Vine + Grain is located at 2475 Sand Creek Road, Suite 112, in Brentwood. For more information, visit www. or call 925-513-5359. Byron Inn Cafe A gem located in the country off Byron Highway, this little diner is known for more than the signs encouraging guests to visit for miles in both directions. With a creative flair and a passion for taking cooking back to a simpler, less-processed era, owner Roberto Rose’s menu boasts a homemade, farm-tofork variety. “One of the most important things to me in this business is to put out fresh, locally sourced foods, cooked simply – the right way,” said Rose, who once worked at upscale restaurants in San Francisco. From his signature ‘wafflewich’ to Italian-style dishes in honor of his roots in Italy, Rose’s diner has become a go-to destination for East County folks searching for quality food. Byron Inn Cafe is located at 16141 Byron Highway in Byron. For more information, visit Byroninncafe2015. W

Brentwood is the place to live! Whether you are just starting out, raising a family or have raised them already, there is no place like the Brentwood community. With over 50 parks, 3 golf courses, a highly rated school district, wineries and vineyards, easy access for commuters, farms, and a wonderful small town feel, it is a Bay Area gem! This is why Jamie not only runs her business in Brentwood, but resides here with her family. Upon moving to Brentwood, Jamie immediately knew this was the place she would be able to call home forever. She loves bumping into friends at the grocery store, going downtown to MJs for Sunday brunch, hitting the Farmers Market, hosting her annual Fall Festival Client Appreciation Event at Smith Family Farm or going on a family bike ride around town. So whether you are new to the Brentwood community, have lived here for years or are just curious to learn more, please give Jamie a call. She will be more than happy to share with you all the wonderful reasons you should be calling Brentwood your home. The reasons my husband and I choose Jamie as our realtor is because of her remarkable reputation in the real-estate industry, and specifically in the Brentwood Community. Working with Jamie has been, by far, the best experience. Her advice is excellent, informed and backed by thorough local knowledge. She works tirelessly to optimize the outcome of the transaction, and nothing was too much trouble for her. We can confidently recommend her to anyone looking for an agent to buy or sell property. No matter what time of the day (or night), Jamie was always available. Her professionalism and character is testimonial to the great service that she provides to all her clients; it is contagious to the point that she is now not only our realtor, but also a dear friend. In every regard, Jamie exhibits the highest degree of professionalism and knowledge of her craft. She earned our trust and confidence throughout every aspect of buying, selling and the renovating process.

Local Road Projects Get Driving


As East County motorists putt along, at least two major transpiration projects are moving full speed ahead. The $73 million Balfour Road Project, slated for completion by the end of the year, will add a bridge over Balfour Road to replace the current signalized intersection near Highway 4 and Balfour Road. The move will allow one lane each of eastbound and westbound traffic to bypass the signal at Balfour Road and Highway 4 on the way to Byron and Discovery Bay. Contra Costa Transportation Authority officials believe the switch will cut down on traffic backups and improve the safety of the stretch of road. “This is significant,” said Ivan Ramirez, construction manager. “Once we get the traffic over Balfour and allow a continuous flow without having to stop, it will be a lot of relief. In addition, by virtue of eliminating the at-

grade intersection, it improves safety.” Crews also plan to build a second bridge over Deer Creek, farther west on Highway 4 between Balfour and Sand Creek roads, and a third bridge over Deer Creek, creating an on-ramp from Balfour Road onto eastbound Highway 4. A second lane, separated by a median, will be added in each direction from Sand Creek Road all the way to Balfour Road, Ramirez said. “It completes what we started,” said Brentwood Mayor Bob Taylor. “My dream was to have the bypass finished. It’s not going to be a halfdone project but a completed project.” On the heels of that project, the long-awaited BART to Antioch service is fast approaching the boarding platform. The new $525 million eBART transportation option, expected to begin serving passengers in May 2018, will enable East County riders to board at Hillcrest Avenue in Antioch and arrive at the Pittsburg and Bay Point BART station in 10 minutes.

The operation will run on the 20-hour BART schedule and Antiochbound trains will meet riders at the Pittsburg and Bay Point station every 15 minutes. Passengers will also have access to and from a new station slated for the intersection of Railroad Avenue and State Route 4 in Pittsburg. BART officials project 4,000 riders a day will use the new system, which equates to about one freeway lane of traffic on Highway 4 per day. Ridership is expected to jump to 10,000 riders a day by 2030. While those improvements are moving forward, many others were recently completed, including a Highway 4 expansion from two to four lanes from Lone Tree Way to Sand Creek; a Sand Creek Road Interchange addition and Sand Creek Road undercrossing; and connector ramps from westbound Highway 4 to northbound Highway 160 and from southbound 160 to eastbound Highway 4.
