Local Winos - Support Local Wine

The Wall Street Journal's annual Open That Bottle Night is almost here and a fantastic wine from a local winery is one of the finalists!

Open That Bottle Night, this year on February 28th, is a night to pop open that bottle of wine you bought for a special occasion. Life is too short to put off special things, right? And it doesn't have to be the most expensive wine or the rarest wine..just a bottle of wine that means something to you. The wine columnists at the Wall Street Journal want our help in determining which of their special wines they open and one of the four finalists is Westport Rivers Winery 1999 Brut Cuvée, a delicious sparkler for which the winery is famous and a wine that many tasters mistake for champagne (including Adam and I).

Massachusetts wineries know how to throw down!

I went to the winery over the summer, after a day spent at Horseneck Beach and blogged about it. . It is a gorgeous spot and anyone in the MA/RI area should check the Westport Rivers Winery and attend one of their free tastings. You can support a local business....and get a little buzz. Or check out the website and shop online!

So please click
this link and vote for the Westport Rivers Winery 1999 Brut Cuvée. Especially in this economy, it's important we do what we can to support local business. Especially those in the business of making booze, oui?

And this Saturday, celebrate Open That Bottle Night and crack open a bottle of something special just because!
