February 26th Is Open That Bottle Night! Celebrate With Japanese Wine

February 26th Is Open That Bottle Night

Created in the year 2000 by two Wall Street Journal columnists Dorothy J. Gaiter and John Brecher, ‘Open That Bottle Night’ (OTBN) is an annual occasion that aims to motivate people to reconnect with each other over a special bottle, and create good memories with friends and family–without any other special reason needed to celebrate.

This is the perfect time to try out something that has been on your mind but you’ve never dared. Make this night even more special by inviting some close friends around for an intimate dinner party. The guest list should certainly include like-minded friends of family members who enjoy a good bottle of wine and also appreciate the story behind it.


 Celebrate With Japanese Wine

Hokkaido Wine Kerner White Dry is a fruity white wine made with Kerner grapes, produced by a winery that has been producing genuine domestic wines with grapes grown in Hokkaido. This wine has won the Gold Prize and the Cost Performance Prize at the Japan Wine Competition.

Hokkaido Kerner has been selected as a wine to be served on JAL (Japan Airlines) international business class flights (European routes) in 2018. The wine is made from Kerner, a grape variety native to Germany that is suitable for cultivation in the cool climate of Hokkaido.  This uniquely Japanese wine has a dry taste with refreshing citrus aromas and a light, moderate volume.

The wine is dry with refreshing citrus aromas and a light yet moderate volume. The high quality of this wine is evident from the many awards it has won in wine competitions, but its high cost performance is also a feature of this wine. It goes well with dishes that require lemon garnish, seafood, etc. The light and moderately voluptuous flavor is a perfect match for seafood such as carpaccio.
