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 auctionsWe 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

  • Sweet Sunset Chocolate Merlot

    #1 Sweet Sunset Chocolate Merlot

    First lets say that this is Not ChocoVine. This wine is actually made with eighty five percent Merlot and than has natural chocolate cream added to the mix. This is the wine for anyone looking for sweet red or the chocolate lover at home. Great gift for the holidays.
    (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 5 bottles)

  • Finca a Moras Barrell Select Malbec

    #3 Finca a Moras Barrell Select Malbec

    Wow, yes there is cheaper Malbec. There is cheaper everything. This is a focused, complex, intense wine that shows the high altitude with a core of acidic balance. Powerful sweet plum and blackcurrant fruit support a dark mocha and light vanilla stucture and the very full bodied taste loaded with spice and blackberries. The finish is long, lingering and velvety smooth. A great wine with anything coming off the grill. (behind by 8 bottles)

  • Don Ramon

    #4 Don Ramon

    What can we say about this little $10 wine? It's easy drinking but with some fun Old World character. 6 months on oak lends a bit of structure but only enough to keep the bottle from being guzzled in one go. Nice dark cherry, a bit of warm earth, and priced to drink a couple times a day. (behind by 3 bottles)

Fun New Arrivals

  • A.D. Laws Four Grain Straight Bourbon

    A.D. Laws Four Grain Straight Bourbon

    This four grain whiskey uses a blend of rye, wheat and barley sourced from the Colorado Malting Company, and corn from Briess Malting in Wisconsin - encompassing the "mother grains" of bourbon. The whiskey ages about 3 years, all year round to capture the seasonal nuances from the ever-changing Colorado mountain air, in new, 53 gallon charred oak barrels source from Independent Stave Company.

  • Armas de Guerra Mencia

    Armas de Guerra Mencia

    An excellent introduction to Bierzo's native varietal, the palate is fresh, elegant, and clean. Energetic aromas of fresh blue fruits, violet and white pepper, plus a subtle touch of licorice. Supple and gently sweet on the palate, offering sappy boysenberry and floral highlights with a hint of smokiness.

  • 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..

  • Obsidian Cab

    Obsidian Cab

    A wonderful classic CA Cab with solid structure from the altitude and Hungarian oak. Reserved and dark on the nose with aromas of blackberries, hints of black licorice and coffee. Really nice and elegant. Touch on the masculine side with no jammy, jelly jar junk here. Wonderfully different.
