Have you ever wanted an excuse to open a special bottle of wine you have been holding on to, but just can’t quite bring yourself to crack? Now is your chance!
Saturday, February 28th, marks the annual Open That Bottle Night celebration, an event started by that wine writing couple from the Wall Street Journal – Dorothy J. Gaiter and John Brecher. In the late 1990s, OTBN was born as an opportunity encourage their readers not to be intimidated by their wine, and to open a significant bottle and share their stories.
Since wine blogging has exploded int he last year or so, I am partnering with Vinquire (my other wine obsession) and Wilson Daniels,
along with twitter Taste Live, to open some tasty treats and share with you. Wilson Daniels is a full services sales & marketing company, which represents brands from throughout the US as well as internationally. Having worked with them on Passion for Pinot as well as this event, I am impressed by their quality of product as well as service. Check them out!
I will be blending wine earlier in the day, but around 6pm PT / 9pm ET, please join me on Twitter (@vinquire) to hear about the following wines, generously provided by Wilson Daniels. If you can’t play along, check out The Jug Shop or your favorite retailer, and participate from your sofa, easy chair, or corkage free restaurant! If you are having trouble locating the wines, please click the links below, which will take you to our Vinquire search page.
