Festival of the New Beaujolais
The new wine has arrived!
Every year on the third Thursday in November, the Fête du Beaujolais Nouveau, or Festival of the New Beaujolais takes place in Lyon. This is the opportunity to taste the young wine from this year's Beaujolais harvest. Here you can meet the people who produce the wine, and celebrate the success of the harvest with them.
There will be concerts all evening and then a tasting session will follow at midnight. A total of 450 litres of the new wine will be distributed for free at the stroke of midnight… Fine dinners and live entertainment wil punctuate this unique and very popular event.
At midnight, don't forget to raise your glass and proclaim "the new beaujolais has arrived"!
