Beaujolais Nouveau Event

Kick off the holiday season with Beaujolais Nouveau !

Friday 22 November- 6 - 10pm

Join us for a casual celebration of Beaujolais Nouveau at the Alliance!

 

Beaujolais Nouveau is a very young wine made from Gamay grapes in the Beaujolais region of France. Made from grapes picked earlier that same fall, the wine ferments for mere weeks before being bottled and hitting wine store shelves.

 

In France, each year's release is eagerly awaited, with the third Thursday of November being the day when wine lovers crow:

 "Le Beaujolais nouveau est arrivé!"

 

While the wines are being shipped well before, stores are forbidden to slip them onto the shelves until release day. The fanfare adds to the frisson!

Don't think of a Beaujolais Nouveau event as a "tasting":

think of it as a great excuse for a party!
