Are you ready for one of the best days of the year?!
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.
So here at Seaboard we thought: we should party too!
"Beaujolais Nouveau – that much-ballyhooed cherry-red colored vintage that’s best served chilled -- is clearly not for wine snobs. 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."
We will be featuring John Paul Brun's 2017 Terres Dorees Beaujolais Nouveau!
Along with the new Nouveau, we will also have a featured wine list of the other 'cru' Beaujolais wines made in the region! What, you didn't think that we weren't going to bring out the fancy stuff too??
What makes this wine even better is that it's the perfect fit for the table on Thanksgiving the following week! Beaujolais light and fruity character pairs well with turkey, cranberry sauce, and everything else on the table!
All the bottles are available retail to go so grab a bottle (or case) for the upcoming holiday!
In addition, we will have live music by Lisa de Novo
and Now Toasted! food truck on site from 5pm-9pm!
No need to sign up, just come hang out and party with us! Cheers!
