Beaujolais Nouveau now on Liquor Mart shelves

The first French wine of the 2012 harvest has arrived in Manitoba.

Wine lovers will have the opportunity to taste the whimsical tradition of Beaujolais Nouveau, the first wine of the harvest, with its release today at Manitoba Liquor Marts.

Under French law, the annual Beaujolais Nouveau may not be released until the stroke of midnight on the third Thursday of November.

In celebration, all of the Brandon Liquor Marts are offering Georges Duboeuf Painted Bottle, $16.95 per 750 ml bottle, in limited quantities.

Beaujolais Nouveau is a fast-maturing, quickly-bottled, purple-pink wine made from Gamay Noir grapes.

Traditionally consumed by French vintners to celebrate the end of the harvest, the wine enjoyed lavish countdown parties thrown in its honour before it settled into its place as the quintessential holiday wine: exceptionally light and fruity, pairing well with turkey and appetizers, and best served chilled.
