Fête du Beaujolais Nouveau


What’s better than wine tasting? Being the first one to taste it! Sip to your satisfaction at La Fête du Beaujolais Nouveau (translation: wine party) hosted by the Alliance Française de Sacramento on Saturday, Nov. 23 from 6-9 p.m. at Silverado Design Center.

Each year, much of France—and much of the world—breathlessly awaits the release of that year’s famously fruity Beaujolais wine crop. Taste the 2013 vintage alongside other popular French wines and hors d’oeuvres from local restaurants at this year’s Fête, emceed by KCRA-TV’s David Bienick.

Your palate isn’t the only thing that will be benefiting from the evening’s festivities—proceeds from the fête will benefit the Alliance Française de Sacramento, which offers French language courses for adults and children as well as various cultural events throughout the year for more than 600 members and other frenetic Francophiles.

The best part? Your ticket purchase includes a free glass of this year’s Beaujolais! For tickets and more information, call (916) 453-1723 or visit afdesacramento.org. Silverado Design Center is located at 5250 S. Watt Avenue in Sacramento.
