  • BEAUJOLAIS NOUVEAU PARTY 2015! Thurs. Nov. 19 6-10pm

    Thurs. Nov. 19  6-10pm

    We will be serving the BEST BN in town, and most likely a few other Beaujolais (of the non-nouveau variety). Dupeuble Beaujolais Nouveau, light, fresh, fruity but delicious and pure. It is air-freighted over and tastes of France in the fall, Paris in the bistros, and fun in the fields! This is NOT the insipid, innocuous, hack wine that some of the industrial producers fabricate out there. This is artisanal wine, family grown, and lovingly made. Come join us and help celebrate this ancient end-of-harvest ritual–and sip the brand-new batch of wine that was made from grapes hanging on the vines in France just weeks before!
    Le Beaujolais est arrive!
