Alex Creamer play Bitto BistroPlease welcome singer-songwriter Alex Creamer and multi-instrumentalist Josh to Bitto Bistro! Alex was born and raised in the small town of Montrose, PA. At 15 she began performing monthly at a local café, and by 17 branched out to the nearby city of Binghamton, NY which quickly embraced her as part of its original music scene. She`s held the role of lead singer and rhythm guitarist in two cover bands and fronted the group “Seven Miles” which performed her original music and classic rock covers. Over the past six years since she started sharing her folk/blues inspired music she`s won several local vocal competitions including EPAC Idol and Tioga Downs Casino`s Rockokie Sing-Off, recorded a solo album and two EPs, producer her own record, organized and hosted a concert to help stop the construction of a toxic waste incinerator in the area, and single-handedly booked a cross-country tour of the United States and Canada where she performed with percussionist/guitarist Reid Miner.  After performing in the NEPA and Upstate NY area as a solo artist and as a member of original music project “Late October" in 2019 she moved to the Denver area to pursue her career further. She currently plays Eastern Colorado venues such as Buffalo Rose and The Forge as a solo artist and in the funk/soul band Jamona.

Her music has been described as enchanting and dynamic with edgy lyrics, delivered on stage with honesty and humor. She connects with her audience and makes it her personal goal to leave them with something sacred after every show.

Orchard Wine Cellar Movers and Shakers This Week

  • Tintero Moscato

    #1 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.
    (Holding the #1 spot)

  • Sweet Sunset Chocolate Merlot

    #2 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. (behind by 9 bottles)

  • Fiore Nebbiolo

    #3 Fiore Nebbiolo

    A beautifully balanced Nebbiolo. Aromas of dried violets, earth and hints of anise. The palate yields more savory earthiness, dark cherry, pomegranate, subtle notes from oak. Enough tannin to wait a few years, but enough acid to approach now. We envision a glass of this next to a piece of roast lamb. (behind by 12 bottles)

  • Armas de Guerra Rose

    #4 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 2 bottles)

Fun New Arrivals

  • 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??

  • Three Brooms

    Three Brooms

    This single vineyard, certified sustainable sav blanc shows lovely white flower, chili pepper, and gooseberry on the nose with some sandy mineralogy. Very nice weight and balance showing passion fruit, ripe apple flavors. Such a pleasant surprise is the roundness, the acid is lively and energetic but not abrasive.

  • Poseidon Pinot Noir

    Poseidon Pinot Noir

    From vineyards with a view of the bay comes this well balanced, lively and delicious Pinot Noir. A easy drinking, medium-bodied wine showing off some rare and black pepper spiced Hungarian oak to balance the raspberry aromas and flavors.

  • 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.
