Open That Bottle Night – Just Do It

Open That Bottle Night – Just Do It

La Fiole du Pape Chateauneuf du PapePalate Press, the online wine magazine, will be hosting Open That Bottle Night tonight, February 23rd. Dottie Gaiter will be the host and Palate Press encourages drinkers to share their wine stories via:

Open That Bottle Night is an occasion to uncork those wines that you’ve been saving for a special occasion but can’t seem to find an occasion special enough for. Simply select a bottle that has significance to you, it doesn’t have to be the most expensive wine.

I may just go nuts and uncork my distorted, kitschy La Fiole du Pape Chateauneuf du Pape as it reminds me of a wine my family “splurged” on when I was a kid in Quebec. I’ve had a bottle in my cellar for years that I think might be just what I need to feel that special connection.

However you decide to celebrate Open That Bottle Night, share it with someone special and please, share your thoughts with me!

  1. Thanks for the heads up on this Veronique!

  2. Looking forward to seeing what you uncork Steve!

  3. We’re hosting an #OTBN gathering, so will have to check out the online activity and share what we get into. I’ve got a nice Bordeaux to open and serve with some beef stew. Curious what others will bring!

  4. I really enjoy these social media tastings…pick up tips on good bottles all the time. Cheers!

  5. If you indeed décide to open a Chateauneuf du Pape, please drink it to your dad’s and my health since we drank it often as you grew up. In this, we gave you the good exemple.
