Since the millennium, one night in the dull, dark month of February has been immeasurably brightened for wine-lovers by the creation of a special day to celebrate cherished bottles of wine, champagne and spirits. Open That Bottle Night is dedicated to making sure that those bottles of fine wine put away for a special occasion, are used and enjoyed.
Open That Bottle Night is an annual occasion that aims to motivate people to reconnect with each other over a bottle, and create good memories with friends and family.
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!
Are you feelin’ it yet? Here is a link to our report from last year’s OTBN to get you in the spirit. This year we’ll have a gathering at Toledo Wines and Vines international headquarters to celebrate the event.
If you follow us on Twitter (@toledowav) , you’ll be able to see the various bottles we sample in real time. You can share your activities on our Facebook page, Google+ page, comment on the blog or tweet us. All that social media should help you work up a big thirst!
