Beaujolais Nouveau is a traditional French holiday celebrated on the third Thursday of November every year to herald the release of Beaujolais Nouveau wine. Made from the Gamay grape, the wine is similar to a light bodied Pinot Noir and has a fresh, fruity flavor that pairs well with autumn dishes.
