Nouveau Beaujolais Day

Beaujolais Nouveau Day is celebrated around the world on the third Thursday of November. The holiday is dedicated to a special kind of wine made from the delicious Gamay grapes grown in France. Drink lovers will definitely distinguish this taste from hundreds of others. What about you?


Before World War II, the wine variety was unknown outside the region. However, soon everything changed, and the drink could be tasted in different parts of the world. Its bright taste and undoubted quality were remembered by people, so interest in wine only increased. High manufacturing standards dictate their own rules, so the wine simply cannot be defective.

Americans take out stashed bottles on Thanksgiving. The taste of wine is ideally combined with the favorite turkey seasoned with cranberry sauce. If you are skeptical about the idea, we advise you to try and tell about your verdict after.

Interesting facts

5 amazing things about Beaujolais Nouveau:

  1. It is believed that the younger the wine, the more beautiful it is! It retains its properties for a very short time – about six months, so you should not store it “until better times.”
  2. The grapes are harvested exclusively by hand: it is then that the grapes give the drink a catchy red color, a refreshing taste, distinct fruit and flower shades.
  3. In restaurants, the drink is served with the so-called “village food” – fried, smoked meat, ham. But cheese is not at all welcome here. Although you can try to combine with Camembert, but here the taste balance is aimed at the amateur.
  4. Once in a pub in England, a visitor paid almost $1500 for a glass. This event was included in the Guinness Book of Records.
  5. The total area of ​​vineyards is 6300 hectares. The variety grows on granite subsoil.

How to celebrate

Enjoy the taste of Beaujolais Nouveau! Go to a liquor store and ask a consultant to pick you up a bottle. Gather with your family, cook a delicious dinner and enjoy a pleasant evening.
