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

  • Armas de Guerra Rose

    #1 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.
    (Holding the #1 spot)

  • Laya

    #2 Laya

    From Castilla-La Mancha in Central Spain, a unique blend made with the Garnacha Tintorera grape. Not only is the skin red, but so is the flesh. This provides a sturdy structure and noticeable tannins. Aged only 4 months in oak, this wine has luscious red and black fruits with hints of spice. Definitely one you should try, especially at this price! (behind by 4 bottles)

  • Gran Passione

    #3 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! (behind by 9 bottles)

  • Avery The Maharaja Imperial IPA

Fun New Arrivals

  • 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.

  • Chateau Deux Rocs

    Chateau Deux Rocs

    A rose of lovely character, with fleshy red fruit and floral aromas. Its intense fruit and tannic backbone will make it the perfect match for spicy Mexican or Thai food.

  • 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.

  • 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..
