So why celebrate Beaujolais? Well, ever since 1985, the third Thursday of November has become a day where cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars and bistros all over the world celebrate the official release day of the very young wine known as Beaujolais Nouveau (from 1951 – 1984, the release day was set as Nov 15th). Beaujolais Nouveau is a type of wine made from the infamous Beaujolais grape, Gamay, which has just been harvested and fermented for only a few short weeks. That being said, most Beaujolais Nouveau wine is very tart and acidic and is essentially as close to a white wine that a red wine can get :P But at out event, we will be showcasing all quality levels of Beaujolais wines from the light and fruity to intense and robust! So join us and the rest of the world in celebrating this fun and joyful vinous celebration! :)
