The Alliance française d'Adelaïde is hosting it's annual Beaujolais Nouveau dégustation.
Every year the first taste of the new wine harvest is eagerly anticipated in France and around the world. Parties are held, bottles are uncorked and the first sips of Beaujolais Nouveau are savoured. But since this is a young wine, let's not get too serious and let's have some fun. Beaujolais nouveau is a red wine made from Gamay grapes produced in the Beaujolais region of France. It is the most popular vin de primeur, fermented for just a few days then officially released for sale on the third Thursday of November. The grapes must come from the Beaujolais AOC. By law, all grapes in the region must be harvested by hand. The evening will include a presentation on Beaujolais Nouveau.
