Celebrate Beaujolais Nouveau with Alliance Francaise
Beaujolais Nouveau is the world’s most popular vin de primeur. A red wine, made from Gamay grapes born in the region south of Burgundy, it is produced and bottled only a few weeks after harvest and is meant to be consumed immediately – not aged, like many other varieties of wine. Released only once a year, it is a requirement under French law that this light and fruity wine not be distributed until 12:01am on the third Thursday of November each year. In France, a race to carry the first bottle of Beaujolais nouveau to Paris has become a national event, with cafés and bars across the city announcing when “Le Beaujolais nouveau est arrive!”
Alliance Francaise is importing this exclusive wine direct from France and serving it at historic Newstead House so the community in and around Brisbane can join in this celebration.
The ticket price includes two glasses of Beaujolais Nouveau paired with a chef’s selection of premium cheeses, charcuterie and grazing delicacies.
