“In tiny villages and big cities across France ( as well as in many countries around the world) people will be celebrating the arrival of Beaujolais Nouveau 2011. This is a very young wine made in the Beaujolais region of France. The grapes are picked earlier in the fall and fermented for just a few weeks. The wine goes on sale at the stroke of midnight each third Thursday of November, amid much hoopla and fanfare.”
Join the party and enjoy a tasting of Beaujolais Nouveau 2011 accompanied by live music from the French Jazz Trio, Flon Flon et Musette. Many vendors will be celebrating as well, so work your way around Chicago’s French Market enjoying samples of a wide array of specialties.
