ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- Wegmans here is encouraging its email newsletter subscribers to throw an “Open That Bottle Night” party on Feb. 24. Created in 1999 by co-authors of the Wall Street Journal‘s wine column, Open That Bottle Night encourages people to enjoy a great meal with special wines, be they gifts or souvenirs from a memorable trip, according to the retailer. The newsletter includes an event menu with recipes for sparkling, white, red and dessert wine-food pairings. Recommended wines range from under $25 to $75. Among them are Domaine Chandon, Nicolas Feuillatte Brut and Nicolas Feuillatte Rose. Wegmans suggests that they be paired with long-stemmed strawberries, Sahale Blend Snacks and Fruit-Topped Brillat-Savarin Cheese with Marathon Bread, for starters. Open That Bottle Night traditionally takes place on the last Saturday in February.
