Please join the Alexandria-Caen Sister Cities Committee and the Office of Historic Alexandria, as we participate in the world’s largest wine party! Beaujolais Nouveau Day is marked in France on the third Thursday in November, the earliest French law allows this year’s wine to be served. Parties are held throughout France to celebrate the first wine of the season, and nearly half of the Beaujolais’s annual wine production, or 65 million bottles, will be consumed during Beaujolais Nouveau festivities. On this year's Beaujolais Nouveau Day, celebrate the first taste of the 2019 harvest in the company of fellow French enthusiasts and Sister City supporters. The fresh and fruity Beaujolais Nouveau wine is made using a quick fermentation processso that it is ready in time to celebrate the end of each harvest season. While guests enjoy the new flavor of the 2019 Beaujolais Nouveau + tasty treats, guest speaker Robert Cavanaugh of Adventure Wine LLC will explain the significance of Beaujolais and the current release. Mr. Joseph Gueron, Producer and Host of GloBeat, a world music radio show on WERA 92.7 FM will entertain us with French tunes.
Tickets include wine tastings as well as desserts and light fare.
