Beaujolais Nouveau Day is marked in France on the third Thursday in
November with fireworks, music and festivals. Under French law, the wine is
released at 12:01 a.m.; just weeks after the wine’s grapes have been harvested.
Parties are held throughout the country and the entire world to celebrate
the first wine of the season.
Beaujolais Nouveau – that much-ballyhooed cherry-red colored vintage
that’s best served chilled -- is clearly not for wine snobs. This fresh and fruity
red is the result of a quick fermentation process that ends up with a tasty,
clean wine that is enjoyed by palates the world over.
Here's where to celebrate all over DC:
