Explore Beaujolais Beyond Nouveau With the French #Winophiles

Beaujolais is So Much More than Nouveau!
Nouveau Beaujolais, that joyous “fresh from this year’s harvest” wine released worldwide the third Thursday in November has been a great marketing tool, bringing an awareness of the wine and the fun worldwide. Unfortunately, too many customers think Beaujolais is only a new wine, meant to be drunk immediately and without too much thought, then forgotten until next year.

Enough! The French #Winophiles are taking the proverbial bull by the horns this year to celebrate and educate on the wonders of the Beaujolais region, from the simple, gluggable Beaujolais wines up through the ageable Cru Beaujolais, ready to stand beside other esteemed French wines and at a fraction of their cost. Join us this month as we explore the Beaujolais region beyond Nouveau!

  1. Nouveau annoys the bejesus out of me, gamey with a bit age is lush!

    I’m all nuts over the Beaujolais we are drinking this month. Incredible! And with dinner, rounds off so many meals beautifully.
