#BEAUJO2019 ROADTRIP

EPISODE I | WHAT IS BEAUJOLAIS NOUVEAU?

Today we kick off our journey through the Route du Vin (wine route).... First Stop: unraveling the Beaujolais Nouveau mystery!

The 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 weeks before being released for sale on the third Thursday of November. This “Beaujolais Nouveau Day” was originally one of the most frivolous and animated rituals in the wine world with races to get the first bottles to different markets around the globe. The current release practice is to ship the wine ahead of the third Thursday of November, and release it to the local markets at 12:01 a.m. local time.
