The sunny, spring weather we’ve been dreaming about all winter long has finally arrived. This means it’s time to treat ourselves to just the right beverages that complement warmer temperatures. Here at Baker Distributing, we recommend a drinkable Rosé wine. Let’s take a look at some of our new offerings for 2017.

Boyden Valley Winery: Rosé La JuJu RoseLaJuJu-300x830

This wine is made locally right in Cambridge, Vermont. It is dry in taste and full of raspberry flavor that complements its vibrant acidity. It’s made using Frontenac and Cayuga White grapes. Fun Fact: The Rosé is named after the Boyden daughters Juliette and Laurence.


Angeline Vineyard and Winery: Pinot Noir RoséAng_rose_2016_web

Enjoy a delicate, fruity flavor of strawberry and citrus when you uncork a bottle of this Rosé. It is rich with aromas of watermelon, nectarine, ruby red grapefruit, lilies, and orange blossoms. 




Martin Ray Vineyard and Winery: Pinot Noir Rosé

Treat yourself to a blend of blood orange, kiwifruit, passionfruit and coconut flavors, mingling with the aromas of watermelon and orange creme. This Rosé would be ideal for a relaxing afternoon in the sun. 


With Easter and Mother’s Day just around the corner, there are plenty of reasons to celebrate with the ones you love. Keep these rosés in mind when you’re looking for the perfect wine for the occasion. Happy sipping!


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!
