Today’s new homebuyer must be willing to invest in the long term of their new home, and even more importantly, the long term of their community.

To purchase a new home today, include the usual list of size, room count, features, and price, but even more importantly you must consider what the surrounding neighborhood and community have to offer your family. Is this a place where we can raise our children? Is this a place where recreation comes in abundance? Is this a safe neighborhood? Can I see us growing old together here? And, can I see myself become an integral part of making a difference here?

The city of Ione answers these questions with a resounding … absolutely. This weekend only, come “sample” this incredible lifestyle with a free wine tasting and lunch, courtesy of JTS.

Amador County has been voted one of the best places to live in rural America by the prestigious Progressive Farmer magazine. Located within seconds of the award-winning Castle Oaks Golf Course and stunning foothill views, Ione provides the perfect setting for anyone looking to upgrade in the recreation department.

The championship golf course offers five sets of tees and challenges the low handicapper to the weekend warrior. World-class trout and bass fishing spots are abundant with 32 lakes and numerous rivers cutting through the county. Whitewater rafting and skiing offer the outdoor types something to do all year long.  With wine being the single largest agriculture commodity in the surrounding area, Ione offers some of the most picturesque wineries in the state. Most are family owned, and those families are the ones who personally greet you in their tasting rooms.  he history of wine making is exceptional in the area, offering some vines that are 65 years or older.

The drive into the historic foothills of Ione brings to the imagination the Gold Rush days. The thought of independent, focused miners bent on making their fortune is how the area became what it is today. Ione was a place of commerce, a supply center and offered railroad service to the men and women working in the area.

The same cornerstones that helped found Ione are still prevalent today. Many of the shopkeepers live within blocks of the 150 year old buildings where they work. Services to the community and access to the foothills make Ione a fantastic place to live and play.

Community pride is something many of us aren’t used to. We don’t know our neighbors, so we don’t care to know about the community. The pride of ownership is evident by the well-manicured and maintained homes in the area. From established neighborhoods to new up and coming areas, taking care of your home is just as natural as breathing.

In Ione, you become part of the community the second you arrive. With numerous patriotic and hometown celebrations that involve the youngest generation to the “Greatest Generation,” Ione holds its residents close to its heart.
