It’s that time of year again, the snow is beginning to fall, the lights are on the tree and in just a few short weeks friends and family will be gathering to celebrate for the holidays. That’s why at Baker we are running our Nor’Easter Wine Spectacular – because are you really ringing in the New Year if you don’t cheers with a little glass of bubbly? If you’re shaking your head right now then you see where we’re coming from!

We have some amazing varieties on sale from Korbel to Mionetto to Chandon and more until the end of December. Pair yours with a fresh cheese plate, decadent dessert or enjoy a glass over dinner with friends and family. Whether you’re into Brut, Prosecco, Rosé, or just a delicious glass a Red – there is something for everyone!

Join us for two nights of culinary excellence in Rutland and Burlington, for the Signature Chefs Auctions to benefit the March of Dimes Vermont. “Every year more than 15 million babies are born prematurely; a million will die before their first birthday as a result. With your gift at Signature Chefs to the March of Dimes, you can help to fund the research, education, and support to ensure more babies celebrate their birthday.”

The event is a culinary showcase, featuring Rutland and Burlington’s top culinary masters. This rare opportunity is made possible by participating chefs graciously donating their time and talent to create a food experience beyond any available at a single location in Vermont. Each tasting is thoughtfully created to tantalize the palette of even the savviest “foodie” and highlight the chef’s unique and exceptional talents. Amidst a lively party atmosphere and exciting entertainment, guests will enjoy exquisite cuisine, spirited cocktails and enticing raffle and auction packages.

We will be attending both events and representing the wines of Constellation Brands and the beers of Switchback Brewing Company. We will be also be making a donation to March of Dimes to help improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.

Join us for the 2016 March of Dimes Signature Chefs event, led by Chair Matt Peters of GE Aviation, on Sunday, November 6th, at the Rutland County Club. Purchase tickets for the event here.
