Every year, on the third Thursday of November, the people of France and fellow wine lovers all over the world celebrate the arrival of the Beaujolais Nouveau. Beaujolais Nouveau is an "early-to-market wine" that is produced on vineyards of Beaujolais in the Rhône-Alpes area. Its marketing is authorized right at the end of the vinification process.
For wine producers, this event marks the conclusion of a year’s work.

In South Africa this event also marks the final event of the year for the Alliance Française of Durban and provides a chance for its members to reflect on a successful and busy year.

The event "Beaujolais Nouveau 2016" will be hosted at the Alliance Française of Durban on 17 November from 7pm and is made possible by the generous contributions of many sponsors.


The event features charcuterie and cheese platters, a special Beaujolais Nouveau Menu, a silent auction, a blind wine tasting workshop, live entertainment with Marimba band and Nibs van der Spuy, and a raffle.
