A little bit of Beaujolais Nouveau info:

  • Beaujolais Nouveau is made from the red grape Gamay and comes from the southern part of Burgundy, France

  • Beaujolais Nouveau is meant be be enjoyed while it’s young…so drink up!

  • There’s a lot of mass produced Beaujolais crap out there that is full of chemicals and preservatives, but that’s not we carry at the shop, so the Beaujolais you’ll taste on Thursday is artisanal, real, and good for you too

  • Annually in France, on the third Thursday of November, Beaujolais Nouveau is released at 12:01AM, just weeks after the grape harvest. Commence dancing, festivals, fireworks, and glass after glass of Gamay. Why not celebrate in Salem, too?!
