Part of the old Cottonwood Water offices – the Liberty Garage – at 1042 N. Main St. in Old Town Cottonwood is being renovated into a wine tasting and retail space. According to Mitch Levy, one of the owners of the new business, Burning Tree will open Aug. 1. Levy said that within three to five years, the business will expand into the full building as the first working winery in Old Town.
“We have taken part of the Liberty Garage and enclosed more office space, which is where we moved our business, Fentek Industries,” said Randy Garrison. “And Burning Tree Cellars will be moving into our prior space after some refurbishing work.”
According to Levy, that work is still underway, but will be completed before the scheduled opening.
“Everything will be 100 percent complete when we open our doors,” Levy said.
Garrison said the entire front of the building will be fenced off to provide outdoor seating and tasting space. He said Burning Tree plans to provide entertainment either inside or outside.
“They have already been approved by the city,” Garrison said.
Levy said the Aug. 1 opening will probably be a soft opening for Wednesday and Thursday.
“We’ll do something for Friday and Saturday,” Levy said. “We want to take our time and do it right.”
“We have 11 wines,” Levy said. He added that the labels of the wines are unique.
“None of this would be possible without the mentoring of Eric Glomski of Page Springs Cellars,” Levy said. Glomski is founder of Page Springs Cellars and has been mentoring Levy through the process of opening Burning Tree Cellars.
