Germany


Ayinger Ur-Weisse Ayinger Ur-Weisse $3.50

A perennial favorite here at Bitto! Has a huge, thick, creamy head. Aroma is typical traditional Bavarian hefeweizen. Flavor is where it shines with qualities that go perfectly with meats and cheeses: banana, yeast, rye bread, and a nice clean and tart finish.



Peter Adler Auslese Riesling Peter Adler Auslese Riesling $11.50

An amazing value for Auslese (certified ripeness) fruit from Germany's Mosel River Valley. Classic light petroleum and mineral nose yet flavor sweet and soft with hints of apricots and vanilla cake. A great German staple with pork of all kinds and cheeses from soft Brie to hard Gouda.



Bermatinger Bermatinger $19.00

Do you love Burgundy, but not the price tag attached to it? This spatburgunder from Baden gives you a stellar example of what pinot can be outside of France. Red fruits and floral notes accompanied by that earthy, forest floor, mushroom that Burgundy is known for. Beautifully balanced, definitely one that should have a place at your table.



Schieferkopf Schieferkopf $19.00

Acid freaks rejoice! This dry Riesling shows the classic stone minerality and petrol on the nose with floral aromatics as well. The palate yields citrus, green apple and stonefruits with mouth watering acidity. A great food wine or one simply just to drink.



Gunther Schlink Spatburgunder Eiswein Gunther Schlink Spatburgunder Eiswein $25.00

Yep, a Pinot Noir ice wine! Gorgeous bright apple and bing cherry flavors, decadent but with crisp acidity. A rare treat!

  • Armas de Guerra Rose

    #2 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 1 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.
