Evening. This event, the entry to which is by invitation only, is in its fifth year in India and is organized to celebrate Beaujolais Nouveau, a red wine made using Gamay Grapes from the region of Beaujolais, in France. “Le Beaujolais Nouveau est arrivé!”—the event is termed so as it heralds the onset of the wine harvest season. Beaujolais Nouveau is meant to be drunk fresh and young, immediately after harvest. The festival first began as a local phenomenon in the local bars, cafés, and bistros of Beaujolais and Lyons, where fresh Beaujolais was welcomed with much fanfare. As the news of celebration spread outside France, it grew to become a worldwide event.
Every year, the third Thursday of November is the pre-decided release date for the wine. The festival will be celebrated on 21 November at Trident hotel, Nariman Point, Mumbai.
Apart from the wine, there will be French cheeses for the guests. Varieties will include Brie de Meaux, Camembert, and Charcuterie delicacies such as Rillettes, Jambon de Bayonne, flown in from France exclusively by Air France.
