Fundraising and Charitable Events

For organizations based in Denver, Broomfield, Westminster, Thornton and throughout the Front Range, Bitto is an easy and fun place to host a fundraiser or charitable event. We have a number of innovative and effective ways to work with you!

“Share the Bill” minimum 20ppl

 Available most days, although a challenge on a Friday or Saturday, (we’d hate to have to turn away your potential contributors because we were full!) just have your supporters come wine and dine here at Bitto Bistro. Your group will collect 15% of the total bill (food and alcohol). We can also share the same promotion for the day at the Orchard Wine Cellar.

Bitto can create special wine tasting flights for your visit.
 

Wine Tastings/Workshops

With most of our staff holding at least a level 1 WSET Wine Certification, Bitto is the best place to have a fun and educational wine tasting. Suggested price $20-$30 a person, 50/50 split. Suggest a topic or choose from the following:

  • Spain & Portugal
  • Italy
  • France
  • California
  • Pinot in all colors.
  • Unusual grapes you should be drinking.
  • Bubbly!
  • Winemaking & Viticulture

Wine Auctions - New!!

our own cellphone auctions We will provide a number of wines to you at wholesale cost that will be part of a live auction and wine tasting. Have your supporters blind taste a number of wines and then use their smartphones to bid on the wines offered. The number of wines offered can be adjusted according to the number of guests. The revenue potential on this is truly remarkable. Imagine a $10 per bottle wine going for $25 a bottle? And imagine that if just 3 cases are sold in a single auction, your group would make $15 X 12 bottles per case X 3 cases = $540! Now imagine 3 or 4 auctions per night! Plus the wine tasting itself can be sold and costs split 50/50 with Bitto Bistro providing another revenue source. No upfront charge, minimum of 30 people required and not available Friday or Saturday nights.

 

Spanish Paella and Wine Tasting

From Sherry to Cava, from Rioja to Rias Biaxas, Spain has a wonderful variety of flavors and styles of wine. Barney has a 3 foot paella pan. Put the two together and you have an evening in Spain exploring the country’s wines and most famous dish. Barney will create a seafood paella for your group (40 - 60ppl). Your cost per person $10-20 depending on wines, suggested retail to your group is $35-65 per person.
Live Auction available as an add-on.

Orchard Wine Cellar Movers and Shakers This Week

  • Gran Passione

    #1 Gran Passione

    From the land of Amarone comes a delicious Merlot based blend. To perfectly ripe Merlot (60%) is added juice from dried Corvina grapes ala Amarone. Rich, deep and smooth, this is a remarkable Merlot that may just change your Merlot worldview!
    (Holding the #1 spot)

  • Bonavita Red

    #2 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. (behind by 6 bottles)

  • Tintero Moscato

    #3 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 14 bottles)

  • Durigutti Cabernet Franc

    #4 Durigutti Cabernet Franc

    Say what? Now a Cab Franc from Argentina?? Argentina is taking over! With a dark intense color, hints of baked fruit, violets and vanilla. Nice soft tannins support the ample rich fruit. Argentina has taken another French grape and done it remarkable well! (behind by 4 bottles)

Fun New Arrivals

  • Broc Carignan

    Broc Carignan

    From 130+ yr old vines, and on original rootstock comes this remarkable Carignan. All native yeasts, no SO2 used during production means pure bright flavors of tart cherry, blueberry and unmistakeable juicy tang from carbonic maceration. Why spend $34 on wine.com?

  • 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..

  • Amon Ra

    Amon Ra

    The 2014 Amon Ra reflects the tried and true essence of the Glaetzer style - generosity of flavor with finesse of structure. The inky purple color displays the gentle but full extraction. The nose shows an abundance of dark blueberry, vanilla, black cherry and hints of cassis with notes of mixed spice and anise. Although still young and firmly wound, the vibrant blackberry and dried spice flavors integrate well with youthful yet supple tannins with the trademark loooong and sleek finish. Meant to go 10 to 15 years to hit its prime.

  • Maimai Syrah

    Maimai Syrah

    So pretty. Brings a clear nose of Gimblett Gravels terroir beneath lush soft blue and black fruit with lovely violet and lavender notes. Palate is clean, balanced and very approachable. Just a hint of the Northern Rhone's meatiness but mostly bright fruit and enough acidity to hold it in check. Maybe the best NZ Syrah out there??
