What is Beaujolais Nouveau?

Beaujolais Nouveau is France’s most popular vin de primeur (early wine) from the region of Beaujolais.

What is Beaujolais Nouveau like?

It is a light and fruity red wine made from the Gamay grapes grown by around 400 small farms. Once picked, the process from grapes to bottled wine is complete within six to eight weeks.

Why is Beaujolais Nouveau celebrated?

It is the first wine produced each year after the harvest season, and so by law, the annual release takes place at 12.01 precisely on the third Thursday of November and has done so since the 1800s. The day is then spent celebrating with fireworks, music and a feast.

Now an internationally enjoyed wine

Once a local wine, Beaujolais Nouveau is now enjoyed worldwide, especially in the UK, Japan and America, and the celebration has become an international event. You may even find an event near you.
