The owners of Bigsby’s Folly sold their dream home in Denver last year to use the cash to turn a 131-year-old warehouse in the tip of RiNo into an urban winery.
Chad and Marla Yetka are renovating the former home of the manufacturing company J. Geo. Leyner Engineering Works at 3563 Wazee St. for their winery. The Yetkas are hoping to open Bigsby’s in June ahead of the nearby four-story Zeppelin Station office expected to open in the fall.
“This is going to be the wine equivalent of a brewery,” Chad Yetka said. “It’s going to be a full production facility. We want to immerse people in the authenticity, but also have them be able to participate in the entire winemaking process.”
