Charles Baker Wines

Following his wife’s cancer diagnosis, treatment and care at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, Charles Baker wanted to find a way to give back.
 
As the Director of Marketing and Sales at Stratus Vineyards Limited, Charles knows his wine. Beyond his work with Stratus, Charles also produces his own small amount of Riesling wine from vineyards along the Niagara Escarpment under his own name: Charles Baker Wines. Using his wife Sandra’s date of diagnosis as inspiration, Charles created an exclusive 2011 Riesling in honour of the care she received. Together, they designed a unique pink vintage label and developed a program to make donations to The Princess Margaret through the sale of the wine.
 
With a target of $1 per bottle, or $10,000 in total, Charles and Sandra have released the wine through the LCBO Vintages catalogue. It is also available at many of Toronto’s top dining rooms. 
 
The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation is halfway through our five-year Billion Dollar Challenge to set the new gold standard in cancer care: Personalized Cancer Medicine. Every dollar is important in this ambitious goal and brings us one step closer to Conquering Cancer In Our Lifetime. 2014
