Trilogy® by Shea Homes® offers a unique wine-oriented resort community

Nipomo, Calif. (May 24, 2019) ) –– In the heart of the burgeoning wine industry on California’s Central Coast, homeowners at resort community Trilogy® at Monarch Dunes are living like winemakers, with stunning vineyard views throughout the current phase, and enjoying their own signature Monarch label wine. 

Trilogy at Monarch Dunes offers a rare opportunity to live in a resort golf community where over 50 acres of vineyards cover hillsides within the property. To create a truly differentiated lifestyle experience, Shea Homes developed an 11-acre vineyard that is maintained by the HOA for potential future use by homeowners to produce and bottle community estate-grown varietals. Additionally, over 40 acres originally planned to be a third golf course were instead redesigned as vineyards to create a one-of-a-kind community feature by making one of the region’s signature attractions part of the community’s lifestyle offerings.  

“From community design and landscape to food and beverage experiences, each Trilogy community is designed to be reflective of the area where it’s located to create a more indigenous and authentic environment than some communities offer,” said Preston Holdner, Area Vice President at Trilogy at Monarch Dunes. “The Central Coast is a hot-spot for wine enthusiasts and sophisticated travelers in general. We wanted to create an opportunity for homeowners at Trilogy to experience the beauty, adventure and allure that wine country living has always offered with a one-of-a-kind amenity that ties into the whole region’s vibe as a destination.” 

Trilogy® has been on the forefront of integrating wine and food culture into resort-style living since the early 2000’s, taking an innovative approach within the homebuilding industry. Along with the HOA-maintained community vineyards and winemaking program, Trilogylaunched a national Barrel Masters program in December 2018, which allows homeowners to secure preferred wine pricing at onsite restaurants, access special wine events and experiences and an opportunity to reserve a private wine locker in Trilogy’s Wine Library for personal wine storage they can access while at the restaurant or hosting a private affair. Every other month the emphasis to embrace local wine culture further extends into daily life when the resort community holds a Vintner’s Festival, in which 10-20 local wineries provide tastings and complimenting bites are served. 

Trilogy at Monarch Dunes, located in the heart of the Central Coast’s wine country, is only minutes away from extraordinary hiking and mountain biking, horseback riding, wine tasting, a day at the beach and more. The community is home to a resort club that offers unmatched amenities, two championship golf courses, an award-winning restaurant and bar, luxury day spa, member-owned vineyards and trend-forward lifestyle programming. Notably, Trilogy’s lifestyle is delivered by a resort hospitality trained team, ensuring a resort-caliber experience for all homeowners.
