Catavino keeps you current not only with the remarkable wine developments in Spain and Portugal, two of the most dynamic wine producers on the planet, but you'll learn about food trends, new dishes and restaurants and the ancient and modern cultures on the Iberian Peninsula. And you may not notice it, but Catavino also happens to be one of smoothest designed websites you'll have the pleasure of visiting.

Open that Bottle Night

If you haven’t participated in this event in the past, or if you don’t have a clue as to what it’s about, check out Dr.Vino’s short history on the event here. In short, it’s the time of the year when you find a bottle that you’ve been waiting to open, reserving it for that “ever so special occasion” that never comes. Now is your chance. The theory is simple, there is no other occasion that is more important, more enticing or more rewarding than the occasion of the bottle itself. For this particular night, nothing should trump the wine but your desire to taste, smell and enjoy every aspect your prized possession. We have our bottle picked out, and we hope all of you can find one for yourselves. When you have either rifled through your cellar and found that dusty Spanish bottle of wine, or the Port wine that shoved under your shoes in the bottom of your closet given to you as a Christmas gift eight years ago, send your story to: wine@wsj.com. This event is a fun thing to do and a great reason to explore your cellar.
