Bertolani Lambrusco Rose Secco Bertolani Lambrusco Rose Secco $14.00

Most of the Lambrusco that has hit our shores has been syrupy, nasty stuff like Ruinete (ruin is in the name) and whatever they pour in the Garden of Olives. This is a different creature altogether, bringing soft red raspberry and pink grapefruit up front before finishing clean. It will change your worldview in a single serving.



Plum Creek Palisade Red Plum Creek Palisade Red $15.00

A surprisingly awesome display of how a Colorado wine can be done. This Palisade blend is balanced in all the right places. Fruit, earth, tannin and acid come together in a lovely glass of juice. Goes to show not all Colorado wine is sweet, sweet, sweet!



Zantho Zweigelt Zantho Zweigelt $15.50

Andau, Burgenland lies on the eastern side of Austria, bordering Hungary. An area studded with lakes along with a cool climate and rocky, gravelly soils. All this goes into creating unique wines, this Zweigelt is no exception. Exuding minerality and an earthy forest floor nose, complemented by cranberry, blueberry and black fruits. Refreshing acidity and soft tannins, this wine is easy to pair with a variety of foods!



Zantho Blaufrankisch Zantho Blaufrankisch $15.50

If you have had our Donausonne Blaufrankisch, this is nothing like it! A beautiful dry wine, enticing minerality, cherry, red fruits with an underlying herbaceous quality. A light body, great acidity and light tannins. Let this wine surprise you with its versatility when it comes to pairing with a dish. A great companion to poultry or red meat!



Robert Oatley Robert Oatley $17.00

From the Margaret River in Australia, this Chardonnay has a lovely balance of character. Stainless steel production with some time on the lee, but no malo (Geek speak). So what you end up with is a Chard with subtle biscuit aromas followed by stone and tropical fruits. Great for a day spent on the patio.



Baracchi Olillio Baracchi Olillio $18.00

Ok, we are a little obsessed with Italian wines here at Bitto. We carry a few lines from this particular producer, and each one has something to offer. This "super Tuscan" blends international varieties like Merlot, Cab Sav, Syrah and Sangiovese. Bright red fruits, beautiful structure and acidity. If you like this wine, try their higher tier products.



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.



Bear Creek wheat vodka Bear Creek wheat vodka $24.00

100% locally sourced, organic wheat distilled in a 16 plate column still then cold filtered. Remarkably smooth with a subtle sweetness on the nose and palate. Great in cocktails but also fine enough to sip straight up!



Lopez de Heredia Gravonia 2009 Lopez de Heredia Gravonia 2009 $33.00

This is how you can enjoy a 10 year old bottle of wine, without spending 10 years salary on it! From Rioja Alta, this famed producer brings this 100% Viura to your table. Oxidative qualities of dried stone and tropical fruits, salinity with great acid. One of those wines you can certainly drink now, or lay down for quite a long time.



Bear Creek cask rum Bear Creek cask rum $37.00

This rum begins with fermented evaporated cane juice, then aged in American oak barrels. At 120 proof you'd expect to be breathing fire after a drink. But this rum is amazingly smooth for such a high ABV. Beautiful character from barrel aging makes this a winner!



Bear Creek straight bourbon Bear Creek straight bourbon $50.00

Mashed, fermented, distilled and aged all in house. Matured in American white oak barrels for a minimum of 2 years. A beautiful deep color, spice and oak on the nose, smooth mouth feel with cereal grain, spice and clove on the palate.



Augier le singulier Augier le singulier $56.00

Founded in 1643, Augier is the oldest producer of cognac in the world! This cognac in particular uses 100% Folle Blanche, providing unique characteristics. Aromatic, fruity notes with subtle nuances of caramel from oaking. Ridiculously smooth and delicious. It's no mystery why Augier have been in business for so long!



Orchard Wine Cellar Movers and Shakers This Week

  • Bonavita Red

    #1 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.
    (Holding the #1 spot)

  • Gran Passione

    #2 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 4 bottles)

  • Laya

    #3 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 14 bottles)

  • Tintero Moscato

    #4 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 6 bottles)
