From Beaujolais To Brooklyn


In the US we celebrate the fourth Thursday of November every year (duh!). But along the Saône River, just two hours south of Paris, it’s the third Thursday they revel in. On that day in the Beaujolais region of France, winemakers produce Beaujolais Nouveau, a wine made from Gamay grapes, to celebrate the end of the harvest and to party like crazy. Brooklyn Winery winemaker Conor McCormack has decided to make his own party wine in the same tradition and call it Brooklyn Nouveau! The Brooklyn Winery is throwing a two-day party where they’ll have this Brooklyn Nouveau, made from Pinot Noir grapes, on tap. They made only one keg so you better get down there quick! In addition, there will be French-inspired cuisine, two actual Beaujolais wines (a Beaujolais Nouveau and a Crus wine from the region- meaning it’s top notch!), and live music by Avalon Jazz Band. Free entry!
