FETE DU BEAUJOLAIS NOUVEAU

Thursday 17th November

The third Thursday of November is celebrated all over France as the arrival of Beaujolais Nouveau. Having been fermented for just a few weeks prior to this, this wine is particular in that it is a younger (vin primeur) wine and so does not have to age like most other wines and can be sold at an earlier date. Traditionally La Fete des Sarmentelles marked the celebration of Beaujolais Nouveau, where the festivities began with a torch-lit procession before the piercing of the first wine barrel at the stroke of midnight. Producers and winegrowers would open their doors so that everybody could taste their wines. While this may not happen now, it is the perfect excuse to spend time and enjoy a glass of wine with friends!
