Dorothy J. Gaiter and John Brecher

Wine critics Dorothy J. Gaiter and John Brecher encourage readers to enjoy wine, not just store it.

Wine critics Dorothy J. Gaiter and John Brecher advise you to seize the day — and that bottle of wine you've been saving. The Wall Street Journal's husband-and-wife wine team host the 10th annual Open That Bottle of Wine Night on Feb. 28.

Gaiter and Brecher explain that the most common question they hear from readers concerns when to open a special bottle of wine. But, they say, you can lose out by focusing on the occasion, rather than the wine itself.

"You should worry less about what is the perfect moment for the wine than what is the perfect moment for you," the couple write in their Jan. 31 "Tastings" column.

Gaiter and Brecher are the authors of several books including The Wall Street Journal Guide to Wine and the memoir Love By The Glass: Tasting Notes From a Marriage.
