Beaujolais Nouveau: A Wine Celebration

Beaujolais Nouveau: A Wine Celebration

Happy Beaujolais Nouveau Day!

The third Thursday of November each year brings the release of a little bit of fun, a little celebration in the wine world for Beaujolais Nouveau. Some may think it’s plonk, or even a scam, but I happen to think it’s a lovely kick off to the Holiday season.
