By Kristine Keables

Every community has a

past, and Folsom’s roots

are golden: literally.

After gold was discovered along the

banks of the American River in 1848,

every foot of the American River was

occupied by miners of all ethnic

backgrounds hoping for a rich future.

With the influx of more than 200,000

hopeful miners, Captain Joseph Folsom

purchased a Mexican land grant with

the desire to establish a community to

provide supplies, transportation, and

be a hub for the area. Folsom passed

away before he could see the fruits of

his dreams, and the city still bears his

name.

For history buffs, the city’s past comes

alive at the Folsom History Museum—

located in the Historic District. Once

the center of town for all business and

community, the area is now a lively

restaurants and shopping that also

honors the city’s history.

On the banks of Lake Natoma is the

Historic Folsom Powerhouse, where, in

1895, electricity was sent 22 miles to

Downtown Sacramento. It was the

first long-distance transmission of

power in the Western U.S. and the

equipment is still intact, including a

beautiful marble control board and

huge ceiling-high turbines.

Folsom’s story may have begun with

gold, but other factors over the years

have influenced its evolution from a

sleepy river town with a historic prison

to a sought-after community for

families seeking opportunity and

superior quality of life.

It was the addition of hundreds of men

working at the bustling construction

zone of Folsom Dam in 1945 that was

the catalyst for the city’s incorporation.

The tiny community of 1,200 was

concerned about the “riotous” behavior

of these men and felt local control and

a city police force was the only answer.

Ironically, the idea of cityhood was

pitched to the community to ensure

their safety from construction workers

even though it was home to one of the

state’s notorious prisons. As a Folsom

Telegraph ad stated: “Do you want your

town overrun with undesirable

characters? Do you want the streets of

Folsom safe in order that your wives

and children may not run the risk of

being insulted?”

Prior to the construction of Folsom

Dam, the city’s residents were either

employed by Folsom Prison or at one

of the vast family cattle ranches and

dairy farms.

In the 1950s, Folsom saw a boom in

housing as nearby Aerojet hired

thousands of engineers and workers

when the company developed rockets

for the Apollo Space Program. These

workers brought their families to

Folsom. However, in the 1970s, the

Program faded.

Folsom’s next leap into the future and

milestone in its history came in the

1984 when Intel opened its campus.

Currently, Intel has more than 6,000

employees and is one of the area’s top

five employers. Intel has been a

magnet for tech companies who have

located corporate headquarters and

manufacturing facilities here. Even two

of the oldest companies in Japan—

Kikkoman Foods and Gekkeikan Sake—

saw opportunity and are brewing sake

and soy sauce here.

Folsom’s history is

still being written.

Folsom's past, visit

innovative future

together by

to its inventive roots.

Family-friendly activities abound in Folsom,

from a zoo sanctuary, aquatic center, and

sports complex to parks aplenty and even a

few museums. The variety of options means

you’ll have something to do every weekend,

rain or shine.

Athletes of all skill levels are invited to

participate in a little friendly competition at

the Andy Morin Sports Complex. They

offer multiple sports including volleyball,

pickleball, soccer, basketball, and even have

a batting cage. Be sure to peruse through

the Parks & Recreation Guide for a list of the

youth and adult programs, clinics, leagues,

and tournaments. Plus, they have rental

space to hold birthday parties and events.

Innovation

Station

Innovation is no

stranger to Granite

Grammar School in { By Linda Holderness }

Folsom. The school

was cutting-edge

when it opened in

1915, with inventive

airflow and steam

radiators—and in 2022

it’s cutting-edge again.

Last year, the Folsom Community

Development Corporation dBA the

Folsom Economic Development

Corporation (FEDCorp) bought the historic

building from the Folsom Cordova Unified

School District to reenergize it as the

Northern California Innovation District

(NCID). Like the innovation districts

burgeoning worldwide as alternatives to

distant, oversized corporate campuses—

think Silicon Valley—NCID offers creative

start-up and “mid-up” companies an

environment that fosters success.

Very simply, “We work to bring in startup

companies with the intention to help them

grow,” says Joe Gagliardi, president and

CEO of Choose Folsom which includes

the Folsom Tourism Bureau, the Folsom

Chamber of Commerce, and FEDCorp.

They also offer forums to help them with

critical funding.

In just a few months, investors have

pledged $2.3 million to help seed these

fledgling enterprises in exchange for a

1% share of each company. “Instead of

handing out money in grants that we

have little control over, we retain some

ownership,” says Phil Scott, business

and economic development consultant.

“That way when they flourish, it’s

mutually beneficial to them and to the

community.” In addition to funding,

NCID offers introductions and access to

services that might otherwise take years

to achieve, Scott says.

with little cash the resources to pursue

their projects. They share the other four

classrooms, and their spaces vary—some

need only a desk; others want half a room.

Some are foreign companies that are

seeking to have a presence in the United

States. All have the potential to bring jobs

and investment to Folsom.

Current tenants praise the worth of the

NCID. Patrick McEntee, CEO of Aquaco

and co-inventor of the Aquaco Eco-

Intelligent Reserve Water Tank, said his

company, after only five months, “has

benefited from the teamwork among NCID

companies, and our venture is thriving in

Folsom.” Aidan Finn, CEO of Binarii Labs

based in Ireland, wrote that “NCID was

invaluable in introducing us not just to

investors...but also in helping us seek out

new opportunities for our products in the

region. They go out of their way to help

deal with the...overwhelming amount of

detail.” Bekonix CEO Daniel Kaye said

“NCID has been an incredible accelerant to

Bekonix success! We owe a huge debt of

gratitude, not just for the perfect home we

have here...but for the opportunities and

people that have been brought our way.

We absolutely would not be as far along as

we are without NCID.”

He echoed all when he added, “NCID is a

gem in this community.”

South of 50

Developments

{ By Bill Romanelli }

When Folsom residents voted

overwhelmingly to annex 3,500 acres

of land south of Highway 50, they

launched a vision for a beautiful,

thriving community that now, 18 years

later, is coming alive as Folsom Ranch.

The first new homes started

construction in 2018, and the first new

residents moved in the following year.

Today, more than 2,300 homes have

been built or are under construction,

millions of dollars of infrastructure

have been put in place, major health

care interests have planted flags in the

ground, a new elementary school has

opened, new retail is taking root, and

new parks and amenities are in the

pipeline for all Folsom residents to enjoy.

campus, including a 300-bed hospital,

while UC Davis is clearing land for 400,000

square feet of building space for wellness

and health care services.

• Retail. It’s too early to name names, but

between The Shops in the northern portion

of the Plan Area, Town Center “the jewel of

the plan area,” and Southpointe, residents

can expect a multiple of high-density retail

and mixed-use commercial space to come on

line in the next several months.

• Parks and Open Space. The 12-acre

Prospector Park, which will include a

children’s play area, lighted sports field, a dog

park, and sports courts (tennis, volleyball,

and basketball), will start construction before

the end of 2022. Overall plans call for 30

miles of trails and bike paths connecting the

neighborhood to more than 1,000 acres of

dedicated open space.

Photos courtesy of the Folsom Chamber of Commerce.

“It’s humbling and heartwarming to

see families enjoying the trails and a

community taking shape,” says Roberto

Aragon with Westland Capital Partners,

one of the principal developers of

Folsom Ranch. “The city’s vision is

coming to fruition.”

Just a snapshot of what’s happening in

Folsom Ranch right now includes:

• Housing. Ten neighborhoods are

in various stages of construction,

offering a full range of single and

multi-family housing opportunities.

• Health Care. Dignity Health is

moving forward with plans for a

530,000-square-foot medical

• Schools. Mangini Elementary welcomed

its first students last year and is already

nearing capacity. A second elementary

school (as yet unnamed) is slated to open in

time for the 2023-2024 school year.

• Senior Living. Regency at Folsom Ranch, a

55+ gated community, is already open and

selling, with 15 model homes ranging from

1,500-2,400 square feet, an 18,000-squarefoot

clubhouse and pool, and easy access to

shopping, dining, and recreation.

Progress on all these fronts will occur in

phases over the next couple years. Folsom’s

Community Development Director Pam Johns

says it’s a very exciting time.

“A well-organized group of landowners worked

together to create a dynamic community that

fits well with the rest of Folsom, and offer some

unique amenities, job centers, and gathering

places that everyone can appreciate,” Johns

says. As the vision becomes real, it also creates

new marketing opportunities for the city to

attract businesses, jobs, and residents.”

The South of 50 development is expected to be

ongoing for another 8-10 years. At full buildout,

Folsom Ranch will have more than 11,000

new homes and a population of more than

27,000. For more information, visit folsom.ca.us/

Destination Aesthetics

Q. What do you do for your business?

I wear many hats at Destination Aesthetics! I am the founder and CEO, a nurse

practitioner, and lead injection trainer.

Q. What do you like about what you do?

Our team and myself are passionate about making people feel like the best versions of

themselves and instilling them with a sense of empowerment and self-love. I love

building a team that is a second family not just to me but to each other. We thrive off

our patients and their beautiful aesthetic journeys.

Q. What makes you and your business unique?

DA is a medical spa that focuses on non-surgical services versus dermatology or plastic

surgery so we are hyperfocused on specific services such as cosmetic injectables, laser,

body sculpting, and skin care. As a national injector trainer for Allergan®, I am able to

bring the latest innovations and strategies directly to our team and lead them with the

highest level of in-house education. Our core value is love as we feel it sets the

foundation for company culture and patient experience.

Q. Why you chose Folsom?

We chose to settle in Folsom due to the amazing community of both people and small

business support. The Folsom Chamber has been one of our biggest cheerleaders and has

provided so much opportunity for business-to-business and growth and development.

Gail Back

Back Bistro

Q. What do you do for your business?

I’m sure that my face is not as recognizable as my business partner’s and husband’s,

Jeff Back. That’s because I am mostly behind the scenes handling all of our business

administration. If there’s an unglamorous, tedious task, I’m your gal. I run all of our

company’s finances, whether it be bookkeeping, accounts payable, banking or

acquiring capital. Recently, I’ve kept very busy with COVID related finances like PPP

loans. I oversee all human resources, including implementation of policies &

procedures related to COVID and I am responsible for payroll. Additionally, I

coordinate with our outside professionals like attorneys, consultants and CPAs.

Q. What do you like about what you do?

I enjoy the problem-solving aspect of finance. I like controlling the puzzle pieces. It’s

both creative and logical. However, the most rewarding parts of my work are the

positive interactions I have with our employees. Over the last few years, I’ve been

doing a lot of “mom-ing”, as I am the one-and-only person handling COVID quarantines

and illnesses. So, I do a great deal of checking in to see how people are feeling. I like to

think that our staff can recognize my genuine concern for them. I am very grateful

when they thank me for being there for them.

Q. Are there any big developments planned

for the future?

Yes, we are actually opening a new business! It’s called 24 Hour Kitchens. This is a new

concept for us. It’s an hourly kitchen rental facility for food entrepreneurs like; bakers,

caterers, meal preppers and food trucks. We have a location getting ready to open this fall

in Fair Oaks and we’re looking for an additional location. Maybe there’s a great spot for us

in Folsom? Stay tuned.

balance, like so many other

my clients need when it comes to wealth and real estate we pride ourselves on being that

helping ear on the other side of the phone. We are always here when you need us, whether you

are a first time home buyer, a seasoned investor, or a child making a tough choice for an aging

parent, your questions will always be answered with kindness and care.

Q. How do you balance your business with your family?

I love this question because there is no correct answer. At CARE, we blend it all together! Kids

will be at our office quite often as our team needs to bring them to work sometimes.

We have an open door policy, kid friendly snacks, and an environment that cares for all of them

as a family unit. Just the same way our community comes together, we do that same at work.

Family and work are important and balance is important. We blend and sway as it comes.

Q. What makes you and your business unique?

In addition to being a small all female run business in the heart of Folsom, one other thing that

makes us unique is we truly develop lifetime relationships with our clients, they become part of

our little family and community, which is a huge part of who we are. Participating, sponsoring,

and volunteering throughout Folsom to support and serve those around us is at the heart of our

business.

"Folsom holds a

special place with

my family."

Q. What do you do for your business?

I am the CEO and Dentist at DiMariano Family Dentistry

Q. What do you like about what you do?

There is nothing more important to me than living life in a way that benefits

people and contributes to society. Getting patients healthy, helping them prevent

the need for dental work, and taking pride and responsibility in my role as an

employer are the most important pieces of my job. Admittedly, even though I

don’t want patients to need dental work done, it is exciting to engineer a problem

tooth and save it. The MacGyver part of my job is fun!

Q. What makes you and your business unique?

The people inside the business are ultimately what makes us different. We are

genuinely passionate about what we do and we enjoy each other. Patients tell us

daily that they feel that energy when they are here. We all know that no one

wants to go to the dentist (including us). But if you have to be here, then you can

at least count on some laughs and the authentic feeling that you are being cared

for. My favorite thing to say to patients is, “You are not here for us. We are here

for YOU.”

Q. Why you chose Folsom?

Why WOULDN’T I choose Folsom? That would be a shorter

answer. There are far too many reasons to list at once. What I will

emphasize is how supportive this community has been to me as a

healthcare provider, business owner, and parent. The resources we

have in Folsom to keep us all thriving in life and business are

beyond belief. Patients in Folsom are incredibly lucky to have

numerous talented dentists to choose from and something I

appreciate is knowing many of us work together and utilize each

other for learning. The Folsom community of dentists banded

together through the COVID curveball and I cannot imagine

surviving that difficult experience without them.

5 Wonderful Wineries

{ By Emily Peter-Corey }

Did you know we’re

surrounded by awardwinning

wine? The

Greater Sacramento

region is filled with a

variety of vineyards

that offer live music,

event hosting, and,

of course, top-notch

wine. Take a short

drive and enjoy

stunning views,

delicious wines, and

exciting events.

Located in Historic Folsom, Willamette

Wineworks is a wine-blending and food

experience featuring wines from Oregon’s

Willamette Valley Vineyards. You can

select varietals to taste, then blend what

your taste buds desire, and purchase a

glass or growler of your own creation.

And don’t worry if you’re not the DIYtype,

as the experts in the tasting room

will happily pour flights for you to try.

In summertime, don’t miss their Natoma

Wine and Sunsets where you can listen to

live music and sip vino while the sun sets.

824 Sutter Street, Suite 200, Folsom, 800-

344-9463, willamettewineworks.com

A stunning view and sippable wine await

at Helwig Winery, which is just up the

hill in Plymouth. Their offerings include a

rustic tasting room; gourmet kitchen with

burgers, sandwiches, and salads; concerts;

and a memorable venue for weddings and

private events. Be sure to visit them for

Helwig@Dusk once a month May through

September for live music, food, and wine,

but buy tickets early as these fun evenings

sell out quickly! 11555 Shenandoah Road,

Plymouth, 209-245-5200, helwigwinery.com

Originally built in 1934 as a beet sugar

refinery, the historic Old Sugar Mill

now plays hosts to 14 wineries, which

produce varietals from all over Northern

California. Not only is it a one-stop-shop

for a day of wine tasting, but it also

makes a stunning wedding venue. There

are multiple ceremony and reception

spots to choose from, in addition to an

in-house coordinator and myriad of other

wedding necessities. For those already

lucky in love, be on the lookout for holiday

celebrations where specialty vendors

and food trucks are brought in to be

paired for a perfect day of wine tasting.

They’re located southwest, just about 35

miles from Folsom. 35264 Willow Avenue,

Clarksburg, 916-744-1615, oldsugarmill.com

Just over 20 miles from Folsom lies Wise

Villa Winery in Lincoln. This award-

winning winery is noted not only for its

wine but also its picturesque bistro and

fun events throughout the year. Their

Tuscan-style restaurant serves lunch and

dinner, and their events include weekly

Friday Night Live Music and Prime Rib

Thursdays, among annual events like the “I

Love Lucy” Grape Stomp and a Hawaiian

Luau. Bonus: They are continuously

invested in environmental sustainability,

from carbon retention to water filtration

and beyond. 4200 Wise Road, Lincoln, 916-

543-0323, wisevillawinery.com

Tucked away in the rolling hills of

Placerville is David Girard Vineyards

where wines and weddings meet. It has

quite the view for either, and the staff

is always welcoming. For wine tasting,

they’re open later on Fridays, when they

also offer pizza, and often have live shows

that pair perfectly with wine tasting on

the patio. 741 Cold Springs Road, Placerville,

A Healthy

Future

{ By Kristine Keables }

Mercy Hospital of Folsom

Dignity Health

UC Davis

As the number of rooftops grow

in the city’s newest planned

community south of Highway

50, many wonder about plans for

expanding medical services and

facilities to meet the demand.

Luckily, three of the region’s largest

health care providers—Dignity

Health, UC Davis, and Kaiser—are

all making plans to ensure residents’

health needs are met.

Both Dignity Health and UC Davis

have purchased property within the

new growth area to expand their

medical services. Kaiser already

has a large medical building and

an ambulatory surgery facility

in Folsom; they also own land at

Palladio off Iron Point Road for

possible future expansion.

A new Dignity medical building will

be underway soon on a 31-acre

site at the corner of East Bidwell

Street and Alder Creek Parkway.

As part of Phase 1, the building will

house many of the local Dignity

physicians as well as ambulatory

surgery and advanced imaging. It is

estimated the facility will open in

late 2025 or early 2026. President

of Mercy Folsom, Lisa Hausmann,

says Dignity is looking at bringing

other services to Folsom, too,

including infusion and oncology.

Phase 2 includes plans for an acute

care hospital with 100-300 beds.

Mercy Hospital of Folsom, which

is the city’s current hospital, has

100 beds. According to Hausmann,

there’s room for it to expand in the

future; or, when the new hospital

is complete, it might become a

specialty center.

UC Davis Board of Regents recently

approved Phase 1 construction on

its 34.5-acre parcel located at East

Bidwell Street and Highway 50. This

medical building will be 100,000

square feet and house physician

offices, a pharmacy, and an infusion

suite in addition to radiology

and imaging. It is estimated that

construction will start in early 2024

with opening scheduled for 2025.

Plans noted in the Environmental

Impact Report for the UC Davis site

include a micro-hospital of 30 beds,

an ambulatory surgery center, and

a 100-room hotel; the timeline for

these facilities is 15-20 years.

While not anticipating new facilities

in Folsom, Kaiser is “committed

to meeting the health care needs

of Folsom and its surrounding

communities today and well into

the future,” says Kim Menzel,

senior vice president and area

manager of Kaiser Permanente

Roseville. “We regularly reevaluate

our capital planning projections,

subject to several factors, including

membership growth in the area.

Regarding Roseville, while we

have a Development Agreement

to expand the Roseville Medical

Center, including a new hospital

tower, new development is also

subject to a number of factors...

It remains our intention to build a

state-of-the-art medical center at

the Railyards that represents how

health care will be provided in the

future. Due to our ongoing internal

planning processes, we can’t

provide detailed information about

the design, scope, and schedule for

the project,” she says.

Best in

Show

{ By Julie Ryan }

Rivers, lakes,

mountains, and,

maybe most

importantly, wineries.

We’re so lucky to have

all the above at our

fingertips. Speaking

of the latter, a good

amount of our region’s

wineries are award

winners. Thanks

to an idyllic grapegrowing

climate and

soil, certain varietals

truly flourish here.

As a result, we get

to benefit from the

results. The following

are five Best in Show

wineries within easy

reach.

Casino Mine Ranch

Best in Show in the red category goes to another Plymouth winery, Casino

Mine Ranch, whose winning wine—the 2018 Tempranillo—is described as

“richly textured with copious, intense fruit character of freshly harvested

blackberries, raspberries, and Tulare cherries; violets; balsam; baking

spices (vanilla, cardamom, and clove); hints of bitter dark chocolate; and

Fernet-Branca—all interwoven with mouth-coating tannins, refreshing

acidity, and a lingering finish.” Pair this delicious wine with roasted sweet

potatoes or beef bourguignon. The beautiful family-owned winery was

once a ranch mined for gold, but now it produces rosés, vermentinos,

and several reds, including their award winner. 13608 Shenandoah Road,

Plymouth, 209-330-0695, casinomineranch.com

Casino Mine Ranch

Gwinllan Estate Winery

Gwinllan Estate Winery

“Gwinllan” means vineyard in Welsh, and the small familyowned

winery wanted to honor their roots while naming

their vineyard. Their vines grow above the Central Valley

heat and below the snow line, which helps produce perfect

grapes for award-winning wines. The latest winner is from

the “sparkling” category, the 2019 Rosé, and it’s sure to

please your palate. “Delicious raspberry muffin will envelope

your senses. The taste of rhubarb and raspberry jam pair

beautifully with a hint of strawberries and whipped cream.”

They offer several estate champagnes, as well as white wines,

reds, and ports. While you’re enjoying their

offerings, you may see a few family members

roaming the grounds: Ben, Gwynn, and

Matilda oversee vermin control. (They’re

border collies and do a great job!) 7060

Fairplay Road, Somerset, 530- 723-2879,

gwinllanestate.com

Bella Grace Vineyards

This winery’s 2021 Vermentino won Best in

Show for white wines and is also the bestselling

white they produce. (This is their 15th

vintage of the vermentino.) It’s described

as having an explosion of flavors across the

palate, which is delightful and bright, and

pairs wonderfully with seafood (lobster,

oysters, and crab). The winery is named for

the family’s grandmothers, Bella and Grace,

“and captures their zest for life and unique

character.” There are two locations—Sutter

Creek and their wine cave and vineyard in

Plymouth—and each offer unique tasting

experiences. Vermentino aside, their

list of wines includes reds, whites, and

sparkling. They also have several olive oils

and balsamic vinegars to try and buy; and

their chef creates recipes every quarter

utilizing the wines, olive oils, and balsamic

vinegars. 73 Main Street, Sutter Creek;

22715 Upton Road, Plymouth, 209-267-8053,

bellagracevineyards.com

Vino Noceto

What started out as a little red barn decked

out with burlap walls and slabs of wood

thrown over barrels, has turned into much

more. Vino Noceto now have several

buildings and a villa-style courtyard where

you can taste their award-winning 2021

Rosato di Sangiovese described as light,

crisp, and lip-smacking tart. It pairs well

with ceviche, sushi, Mediterranean dishes,

and just about anything else! Noceto means

“walnut grove” in Italian, and the family farm

that now produces wine began with a walnut

crop years ago. Known for their sangiovese,

they’ve been producing wines for over 25

years. From their inaugural vintage and

110 cases, they now they produce 8,000

cases annually and offer nine different

sangioveses, as well as an old vine zinfandel

and a Tuscan red blend. 11011 Shenandoah

Road, Plymouth, 209-245-6556, noceto.com

Lewis Grace Winery

A white dessert wine with rich permeating

aromas of green apple, orange blossom,

white peach, honey, and jasmine, the

award-winning 2021 Fashionably Late

Dessert Wine boasts fresh flavors of tropical

tangerine and ripe nectarine on the palate,

while lemon-lime zest create a harmonious

balance of crisp acidity and suavity. The

winery is named after Lewis Grace, who

was a patriot and served as a soldier in the

4th Virginia Regiment in the Revolutionary

War. The winery’s history doesn’t end

there, however. It sits on a historic piece

of property established in 1890 and was

originally set along the Pony Express route.

The Irving family, who owned the land, was

also a founding member of Apple Hill. The

original Irving barn and ranch house remain,

surrounded by vineyards. The winery

produces, among many other varietals,

a pinot gris, rosé, barbera, and cabernet

sauvignon, as well as their award-winning

dessert wine that’s a must-sip alongside

lemon bars. 2701 Carson Road, Placerville,

TOP

WINE-

STORING

TIPS

• Store at the proper temperature. The

general temperature to store wine is

55 degrees, but that’s not the case

for every wine. To be sure you’re

storing correctly, ask the winemaker

what they suggest.

• Store your bottles horizontally. If

your bottle has a cork, storing this

way will keep the cork moist. A dry

cork can cause premature aging.

Screw top bottles don’t need to be

stored this way, but aesthetically it

looks good!

• Keep bottles in the dark. Direct

sunlight can damage the wine.

• Buy a wine fridge. Not only will

it keep your wine at the perfect

temperature, but it also keeps it at

the proper humidity.

• Store opened wine properly. Recork

it quickly and tightly.
