*** *** Primrose & Tumbleweeds: Beaujolais Nouveau Celebration, November 22nd 6-8 pm

Beaujolais Nouveau Celebration, November 22nd 6-8 pm

Join in the celebration with the 2013 Vintage Beaujolais Nouveau from Damien Dupeuble, known for 501 years of excellence in producing Beaujolais Nouveau, whole cluster fermentation, using native, wild yeasts. 

Celebration will also include French and string music from Hot Band of Hillsboro (*this is a slight change in music), French inspired appetizers, and if Beaujolais is not what your palate desires you can choose from The World’s Largest Selection of Oregon Wines, or any of the other thousands of wines, beers or ciders available at Primrose & Tumbleweeds.

Beaujolais Nouveau is a traditional celebration that began as a way to celebrate the end of the harvest in Paris.  In the 1970’s it became a national event, becoming popular in the United States in the 1980’s.  Wines are released the third Thursday in November, must be hand harvested and can only be produced from Gamay grapes coming from the appellations of Beaujolais and Beaujolais-Villages.  Fresh, fruity wines, meant to be drunk young.
