Traditionally, Beaujolais Nouveau was released locally, celebrating the end of a successful harvest. Today, the often brightly labeled bottles appear on shelves after the third Thursday in November, to celebrate the harvest and give wine drinkers their first taste of the new vintage. It’s bottled only 6 to 8 weeks after harvest, which gives the wine its distinctive purple-pink color and silky smooth texture. The wine is light, very fruity, and pairs quite well with upcoming holiday feasts. Stop in today and try a bottle of 2016 Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau while it lasts!
