Say Allo Allo to Beaujolais Nouveau!
Beaujolais Nouveau Day is marked in France on the third Thursday in November with fireworks, music and festivals. Under French law, the wine is released at 12:01 a.m., just weeks after the wine’s grapes have been harvested. Parties are held throughout the country and further afield to celebrate the first wine of the season.
Beaujolais Nouveau – that much-ballyhooed cherry-red coloured vintage that’s best served chilled…. This fresh and fruity red is the result of a quick fermentation process that ends up with a tasty, clean wine that is enjoyed by palates the world over. The Gamay grapes that go into Beaujolais Nouveau are handpicked in the Beaujolais province of France. The wine actually originated about a century ago as a cheap and cheerful drink produced by locals to celebrate the end of the harvest season.
“Listen very carefully, I shall say zis only once…”
To celebrate we are holding our own Beaujolais Nouveau evening with a twist. Come as your favourite Allo Allo character for an evening of wine, food and frolics. The best dressed will win a bottle of Beaujolais Nouveau.
