Celebrating Beaujolais Nouveau Day

On 17th November, we will celebrate the historic French Beaujolais Nouveau Day, here in the heart of Cornwall. To mark the occasion, we will be offering a very special deal on the world-famous red wine. 

What is Beaujolais Nouveau Day? 

Beaujolais Nouveau Day arrives every year on the third Thursday in November. Historically, the day marked the end of the harvest of the first French red wine ready for drinking. Unlike other French wines, Beaujolais can be drunk immediately after harvest. In the past, the day was marked with races to get bottles of the new wine to markets all across the globe.

Throughout France, posters continue to be hung in bars, restaurants and cafés. To this day, phenomenal hype surrounds the wine. 

Fancy a glass?

This Beaujolais Nouveau Day, why not sample some of this ever-popular grape for yourself, here in Cornwall?

On 17th November, three different types of Beaujolais, including two varieties of Nouveau and one Fleurie, will be available to try from The Alverton bar and restaurant.

Red wine lovers are invited try a medium glass for £9 or take home a bottle for £35. 

Our expert team will pair the wine with the specially created menu below for an authentically French dining experience.
