Open that Bottle Night
Saturday, February 26, 2011 at 1:05 AM - Sunday, February 27, 2011 at 11:00 PM (EST)
The last Saturday in February (Open That Bottle Night) is the time to share that special bottle of wine with family or friends that you have been saving. It could be a special vintage, your dad’s favourite wine, the wine you enjoyed on your first date or one you bought on a memorable visit to a winery. Or if you aren't saving a wine (wine is meant to be drunk after all!) OTBN is a good excuse to go out and buy a bottle and treat yourself.
OTBN is celebrated every year on the last Saturday in February but that doesn't mean we shouldn't all get some early practice in! Get involved and connect with wine lovers around the world, create an OTBN event, post your comments, pictures or videos on Facebook, follow OTBN on Twitter. If posting on twitter don't forget to include the hastag #OTBN
We all know the saying, “Life’s too short to drink bad wine”. So stop saving it and Open That Bottle!
