Strolling Through the Orchard – Part 2 – Bitto Bistro

Though our day did not go as planned at all, Elizabeth and I still managed to enjoy ourselves and made the best out of the situation.  Strolling Through the Orchard – Part 1  After all, “life is like a box of chocolates.  You never know what you’re goin’ to get”, Forrest Gump.

Aside from all the beautiful flowers and artwork, the other bright spot for the day was stopping in at Bitto Bistro for some afternoon wine tastings.


The owners and staff at Bitto Bistro believe in the heritage and traditions of food and culture around the world and in supporting the craft of traditional artisan fare. As such, they are pleased to share with you some of the best the world has to offer in Artisan Cheeses and Charcuterie (cured meats, sausages and pates). Because buying local is also important to them, they source their products from area businesses, farms and dairies whenever possible.

The first W&C was opened in Estes Park in 2006, the concept was relocated to the Orchard Town Center (off I-25 and 144th Ave) in 2010. In early 2015, the company was restructured to allow for continued growth and improvements. This next chapter sees them growing into Bitto Bistro where they will expand the menu while still featuring their amazing platters! “It’s still us, just with a name that lets us grow with our own identity.”

Bitto Bistro has a seemingly infinite number of wines they offer, which is understandable since one of the owners, Barney Treadway, is President and Sommelier of the Wine Education Institute of Denver.


No matter what time the clocks say, it is ALWAYS wine-o’clock somewhere.


We did not enjoy any of the food this time because it was so close to dinner, although I was eyeing the cheese and charcuterie platter from the people sitting across from us.  It was a beautiful presentation and they looked like they were really enjoying every bite of it too.  This time, we just ordered some wine.  Elizabeth had a flight of reds to taste, whereas I just enjoyed a glass of a dry white that I told our waiter to surprise me with.  He brought me an a cool, crisp Italian white.  We were both happy with our choices.




Live, love and enjoy the wine.  Whether you are going in for just a glass or two of wine, or appetizers or a full meal, you will be very pleased you stopped in at the Bitto Bistro Bitto Bistro is located in The Orchard Town Center, at 14697 Delaware St #1000, Westminster, CO 80023.  You can find them online at or you can call them at (303) 452-4900.

Stay safe and sat well Everyone.  ‘Til next time.
