RAISING A GLASS WHILE RAISING MONEY FOR LOCAL FIREFIGHTERS
Many factors contribute to Park City’s uniqueness, including a sense of community shared by individuals and businesses. Jason Morgan and Stephen MacKay, co-founders of Main Street’s Old Town Cellars, are doing more than blending great wines—they are partnering with wine lovers in support of Park City Fire District.
“This has been such a stressful time, between COVID˜19 outbreaks, raging fires and other natural disasters in Utah and also in our wine growing regions in California and Washington.” says MacKay. “I’ve formed many friendships with local firefighters and other first responders, and I’ve seen their commitment and their losses, what they go through to keep us safe, and I wanted to ÿ nd a way to give back.” MacKay reached out to Logan Rodriguez of PCFD to brainstorm ideas how to best support paramedics and firefighters.
From December 1 through June 30, 2021, there are multiple ways to drink and donate to the Park City Fire District Fund. At Old Town Cellar’s tasting room and cozy, but socially distant lounge, they will donate five dollars for each bottle sold
of their “Old Town Outlaw,” a blended Bordeaux-style wine with new world fruit and old world influence named a˝ er a band of local colorful characters. A percentage of sales from wines by the glass and retail sales picked up from their onsite store will also be donated. Try the latest version of OTC’s Perpetual Pinot Noir or their new whiskey-barrel-aged Tempranillo. Each week, Old Town Cellars will give a check to paramedic and firefighter Logan Rodriguez for the fund.
Additional recognition and thanks should be given to Ruth’s Chris Steak House for generously sharing the Mountain Express Magazine cover with Old Town Cellars. Ruth’s Chris Steak House is proud to support and promote the partnership
between OTC and the PCFD.
