Cottonwood consent agenda points to impact of wine industry
COTTONWOOD -- The consent agenda of the Cottonwood City Council meeting Tuesday showed how significant the wine and liquor industry has become to the city and especially Old Town.
As routine items, the council approved the items by a single vote. The slate of items included a new liquor license for a domestic farm winery and beer and wine store for Revelation Wines, proposed to open at 102 East Pima in Old Town.
Another item was a letter of support for Desert Diamond Distillery, Inc. The company, based in Kingman, produces vodka and rum and is applying to open a tasting room in Old Town where Arizona Stronghold formerly operated its business office.
The consent agenda also included a wine festival liquor license application for the inaugural Tilted Earth Wine and Music Festival scheduled June 21 on the Summer Solstice at Riverfront Park. Seventeen local wine producers were represented.
