Baer Wines for Special Occasions

Wine is more than a drink – it’s a story and a way of celebrating. No matter the occasion, there’s a perfect wine to pair it with. From small to big celebrations, Baer wines are crafted to make someone feel special or insert a spark of meaning into our daily lives.

For that anniversary steak dinner you’ve been planning…

It seems there’s always an anniversary to celebrate. Whether you’re the type of person who has an anniversary for every event in your life or the type who chooses to only pay attention to the big ones, our 2015 Ursa is the perfect pair for whatever you choose to eat in celebration. This velvety soft blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Malbec will pair wonderfully with everything from a steak dinner to a decadent dessert. You won’t regret including this Baer Winery classic in your anniversary celebration.

For a special touch…

If you want to make a life event extra special, or are in search of a thoughtful gift, we also have an assortment of library wines available. So, whether you’re looking for a special bottle to celebrate a wedding, an anniversary, or a birthday, there’s a Baer wine in stock that will not only be delicious but also the perfect touch to make your special occasion even more special. It’s always fun to taste aged wines to see how they’ve held up and compare them against newer releases, you might find your palate prefers older vintages and that will become a special occasion itself! 

For the first day of summer…

We don’t know about you, but we’re looking forward to leaving the chilly, damp Seattle winter behind us and welcoming the first day of summer. What better occasion to crack open a bottle of our Shard than the summer solstice? This 2018 Chardonnay shows off the quality and purity of Washington fruit. We don’t obscure the personality of the Chardonnay with oak barrels or malolactic fermentation as it’s aged in 100% stainless steel– resulting in the perfect balance of fruity and freshness making it an outstanding pair for a hot summer’s day. 

Baer wines are made for special occasions, no matter how big or small. We love to see images of a Baer bottle being enjoyed, so don’t forget to document and tag us on Instagram when you open your next bottle of Baer wine.

Three Wine Drinker’s Resolutions for 2020

The year 2020 has officially arrived and with it comes resolutions. However, a wine drinker’s resolutions may differ from the normal New Year resolutions. So, we’ve put together a list of three resolutions for all of the wine drinkers out there. Enjoy!

Resolution Number 1: Forget Dry January

Dry January always sounds great in theory, but the truth of the matter is it’s a lot of work all at once to go cold turkey – especially for the serious wine enthusiasts out there. We’re not saying that you shouldn’t put your health first to start the new year, but we are saying you can prioritize your health while keeping a glass of your favorite Baer wine in your routine. We’d like to suggest a balance so you still feel like you’re making gains toward a healthier lifestyle while exploring new wines and enjoying your longtime favorites.

Just cut your wine consumption in half! This will help you avoid the misery of a dry January and help you jumpstart the new year on a healthier note. Try planning a wine tasting night with friends where you all bring a bottle and blind taste, or trying a new bottle you might’ve thought was out of your price range before with an indulgent meal. After all, you’ll be consuming half as much less often, so you can still spend the same you were spending in 2019 on wine. May we recommend our newest releases, the 2015 Arctos and the 2016 Callisto?

Resolution Number 2: Expand your Palate with Older Vintages

We are all about expanding your mindset here at Baer Winery and love when we get to talk about older vintages of our wines with patrons. If you’re a novice taster, or never thought of trying older wines, 2020 is your chance to branch out and learn about the past. Library wines are a fantastic place to start! If you’re looking for a 2020 anniversary gift or birthday present, a library wine is always a thoughtful and delicious gift for the wine lover in your life. Older vintages are also fun to take to gatherings with friends and family.

Make it an engaging night by going around the table and ask everyone what they were doing the year the wine was made. For example, if you opened our 2001 Ursa, everyone would share an impactful moment from that year! Older wines bring us together, and not only can you learn more about wine by diving into this new pool, but also become closer to your friends and family.

Resolution Number 3: Plan a Wine Trip!

Make 2020 about living and learning with a wine trip! Even the most knowledgeable wine lovers can always learn something new, and there’s no better way to do that than immersing yourself in an unfamiliar place with unfamiliar wines! Whether you plan a trip to Tuscany, Bordeaux, the Napa Valley, or visit us in Woodinville, you’ll gain new experiences, meet new people, and expand your knowledge about wine! 
We hope this list of resolutions helps you jumpstart 2020 in the best way! Our 20th anniversary is this year and we look forward to celebrating 20 years of Baer Winery with the best crew in the coming months. Onward and upward in 2020!
