Easter Brunch!

Some of our favorite regulars have been asking for us to do an Easter Brunch for a while now, so why not? Not only are our platters already perfect for a brunch gathering but this gives us a chance to try out some "brunchy" items and have some fun in the kitchen! Ashley, Mo and I have been brainstorming and have come up with what we hope are some tasty treats and lovely libations. (oooo alliteration!) As we have never done this before and don't know how well received brunch might be, we will be taking reservations for ANY size party on Easter Sunday, April 5th. Brunch menu (and regular menu) will be served from 11am to 3pm with regular menu taking over for the evening hours. Just give us a call at 303.452.4900 to make your reservation!

What's brunch without mimosas, so we'll be serving the classic Prosecco & OJ laced with a splash of St. Germain. We've also come up with a Mimosarita (or Margamosa??) and the Bitto Bloody Mary garnished with Cippoline Onions and some crispy fried proscuitto.

MoMini Fritattas will be a bite or two sized frittata loaded with Idiazabal (Smoked Basque Cheese), Spanish Chorizo and spinach. Barney's Bread Pudding will be a decadent cinnamon challah based bread pudding with a Apple Jack & Lazaroni Amaretto glaze. Ashley is taking our classic Bruschetta and adding avocado, No Woman (jerk spiced cheddar) and some other tasty tidbits to "brunch it up" - Breakfast Bruschetta. On the lighter side, we will also offer a Greek yogurt, granola and fruit parfait. But we can't resist soaking the fruit in Moscato d'Asti first!!

In addition to our platter, salads and regular desserts from the menu, Boulder Breadworks is making us up some Coconut Macaroons that we'll serve with fresh fruit and soft cream. Hopefully this first brunch will be the start of something fun and tasty that we can do more often! 

Hope to see you on Sunday!

Orchard Wine Cellar Movers and Shakers This Week

  • Misc

    #1 Misc


    (Holding the #1 spot)

  • Tintero Moscato

    #2 Tintero Moscato

    Sori Gramella refers to the one of the only single vineyard Moscatos, and Marco is the only producer to bottle this striking limestone amphitheater commercially. Once the 30 year old vines give up their bounty, and the grapes are harvested and pressed, they are kept in stainless steel at a low temperature to prevent fermentation until an order is received in order to provide the freshest wine possible. (behind by 2 bottles)

  • Armas de Guerra Rose

    #3 Armas de Guerra Rose

    My heavens! 50+ year old, organic Mencia vines from some of the highest vineyards in Bierzo. Subtle aromas of strawberry, pink grapefruit and white pepper play with clean river rock minerality touched by zesty key lime. Balance and finish are tied together with a vibrating acidity. Structured and executed like a world class ballerina doing flamenco. Sells out every year for good reason. Lighter than Provence, a different planet than White Zin. The only hard part is only opening one bottle at a time. (behind by 3 bottles)

  • Bonavita Red

    #4 Bonavita Red

    Made from four grapes harvested later than usual to achieve a greater ripeness and smoothness. A deep and inky wine, with ripe plum and blackcurrant aromas. Nice ripe fig and cherry with chocolate and licorice flavors. Just enough oak to give it some backbone. tied

Fun New Arrivals

  • Farm to Table

    Farm to Table

    A fun and lighter style from the cool mountains of Victoria. Aromas of fresh strawberry, cherry jam flirt with notes of forest floor a touch of peppery oak. Lively cola and raspberry flavors with vibrant acidity. Darn good value too!

  • Gewurz

    Gewurz

    A CA Gewurztraminer crafted in the style of those from the Alps. Great crisp minerality, rose petal and lychee notes, with bright acidity to hold it together. All organic from the rugged and cooler Potter Valley in Mendocino. Try with grilled chicken or pork chops to see what a great food wine this is!

  • Dancing Pines Gin

    Dancing Pines Gin

    A beautiful Colorado original. An aromatic, dry, refreshing spirit crafted with 6 botanicals, each contributing a unique component to the harmonious whole. Lovely bright citrus comes through on the finish prompting another sip, and another..

  • Chateau Redortier Beaumes de Venise

    Chateau Redortier Beaumes de Venise

    Wine geeks know of Gigondas and Vacqueras that show off Grenache like no other. Bordering both is Beaumes de Venise which is known for fortified Muscat. On a steep hillside (at 1500 ft!) twin sisters Sabine and Isabelle make this earthy, spicy blend of Grenache, Syrah and Counoise. A gorgeous wine.
