le beaujolais nouveau est arrivé!
This event marks the annual release of Beaujolais Nouveau, the red wine made from Gamay Noir à Jus Blanc grapes grown in the Beaujolais appellation d’origine contrôlée of France, just north of Lyons.
Tell me more….
As French law dictates, all grapes in the region must be harvested by hand because of the wine’s whole berry fermentation production. The vine to wine process, in total, averages 6-8 weeks, and approximately 13 million gallons are produced, half of which are exported. French law also demands Beaujolais Nouveau is to be released no earlier than the third Thursday of November, so, at one minute past midnight of November 17, corks of Beaujolais Nouveau 2017 will be popped and the wine poured in what has become known as “Beaujolais Day.”
For H&H this is a celebration of the successful harvest of the farms they work with and because it’s a great excuse to gather and enjoy delicious food and drink!
**Our Bottles will POP at 5:20pm**
Harvest inspired food, tasting and tasting notes on four Beaujolais wines, two drinks of choice and lots of festive fun! Join Us!
