Beaujolais Nouveau Day

Today, 21 November 2013, is Beaujolais Nouveau Day.

What a day to celebrate!!!

Beaujolais Nouveau Day is marked in France on the third Thursday in November with fireworks, music and festivals. Under French law, the wine is released at 12:01 a.m., just weeks after the wine's grapes have been harvested. Parties are held throughout the country and further afield to celebrate the first wine of the season.
