Gamay Nouveau- It's Big Deal!

August 18, 2010

BobBefore I started working with Wine Sense some 10 years ago, I had worked downtown for 25 years on Hargrave near the Liquor Store. One thing always puzzled me- Why were there huge line-ups at the Liquor Store each November?

One day I was at the liquor store and asked the clerk ‘What the big line-up was for?’ and the salesman told me it was the release day of the Beaujolais Nouveau. I nodded in agreement but really didn’t have a clue what he was talking about.

These lineups were over a hundred people strong each year and the TV stations always had TV crews there as it was released at 6 pm.

GamayNouveauArriveFolks, that was a big deal back then and it still is today! We’re very lucky to be able to create our own Beaujolais Nouveau with the Selection International French Gamay Nouveau.
