Yay! Beaujolais Day!

every year the 3rd thursday of november is the day that the Beaujolais Noveau is released...and that time is upon us again!

what a great idea for a party! especially for those of us out there that maybe only realize all too late that the open bottle on the bar has already turned to vinegar. you don't have to be a serious wine expert to host this tasting and appreciate what the Beaujolais has to offer, although - even a sommelier looks forward to november to try these baby wines!

if you don't feel comfortable hosting a wine party...have a fun night out at a local wine bar, i'm sure they will be boasting this week's new import!

for those of you that haven't had the pleasure of trying these light, fun wines, go down to your local wine shop and pick up a few bottles. they are very reasonably priced and meant to drink right away. the grapes were just hand picked in september! there are several interesting facts about the Beaujolais, if you would like to read here.
