Every year, Nouveau Beaujolais is released on the same day all over the world. It originated about a century ago as an inexpensive and cheerful drink to celebrate the end of the harvest in Burgundy. This playful wine is made to drink now and we will! Also, offered that evening will be Cru Beaujolais’ which are made more traditionally and tend to be released a year or two later and do benefit from aging in the bottle. We will pair these wines with traditional fare served in France on this jam packed festival day. Fran Kysela of Kysela Pere et Fils, will be on hand along with Sommelier Christian Borel to take us on a journey of Beaujolais Discovery along with a harvest menu created by Chef Richard. 145.00 per person plus tax and gratuity
