Customer Spotlight: Custom Gas Fire Pit

See how the perfect burner system brought this epic custom gas fire pit to life!

Mountain Brook Vineyards is a 7-acre vineyard overlooking the Tyron Foothills in North Carolina. This gorgeous vineyard features award-winning wines, wine tastings, live music, an outdoor patio, and a wedding venue!

Recently, we worked with their landscape architect and project manager, Knight Strategies, to find a burner system that would fit the large custom fire pit they planned to build at the vineyard.

Knight Strategies created this amazing fire pit using a custom-made tree-style CROSSFIRE brass burner system by Warming Trends. The burner can produce up to 1.8 million BTU's and sits on a 10-foot diameter pan. That's one huge fire pit!

The CROSSFIRE brass burner system is the perfect solution for this custom project. CROSSFIRE burners use high-velocity Venturi Jet technology to create supercharged flames for a taller, brighter, and fuller fire.

The epic flame presentation produced by this burner won't ever be dwarfed by the size of the fire pit and the all-brass construction ensures it won't rust or corrode over time.

Knight Strategies constructed the shell of the fire pit with cinder blocks and finished it with beautiful stacked stone and a brick top.

The fire pit sits just below a covered patio with an outdoor fireplace and comfy seating, and just above the rolling hills of the vineyard. It creates the perfect place for patrons to take in the breathtaking scenery while sipping the vineyard's award-winning wine and enjoying a lovely fire.

Fire pits often instill a sense of community and togetherness into a space that might otherwise be missing without a place to gather and connect. Mountain Brook Vineyards demonstrates just how well a fire pit can bring people together by providing them with a place to talk, relax, and enjoy a rare moment of beauty, warmth, great wine, and a magnificent fire!

We hope you enjoyed this customer spotlight and hope it helps to guide you on your journey to create the ultimate outdoor space! A special thanks to Knight Strategies for the amazing pictures (check out their website here).
