Are you saving a certain bottle of wine for a special occasion that never seems to arrive? Created by Dorothy J. Gaiter and John Brecher, wine writers for the Wall Street Journal, Open That Bottle Night makes the last Saturday in February just that occasion. Use OTBN as a reason to enjoy that special wine — while it’s still at its prime!
The topic of OTBN came up while we were returning from wine tastings at Corks and Aficianado. Our neighbors (Sax Man and Wine Chick) hadn't heard of OTBN, but quickly grasped the concept. It's like having fine china and crystal that never gets used because no occasion seems to be special enough.
We hope you use this opportunity to pop a special bottle. Let us know about your OTBN bottle (click on comment below).
