The story of Beaujolais Nouveau
At one past midnight on the third Thursday of each November, from little villages and towns like Romanèche-Thorins, over a million cases of Beaujolais Nouveau begin their journey through a sleeping France to Paris for immediate shipment to all parts of the world. Banners proclaim the good news: “Le Beaujolais Nouveau est arrivé!” (“The New Beaujolais has arrived!”) One of the most frivolous and animated rituals in the wine world has begun.
Read the rest of this fascinating history on the Alliance Française website.
