The Daily Courier - - WINE & DINE -

This wine was lit­er­ally made just weeks ago. It’s the 2018 Cail­leteau Ga­may Nou­veau from West Kelowna’s Quails’ Gate Win­ery.

And it will be re­leased Thurs­day night, 6 to 8 p.m., at a French-in­spired party at the win­ery fea­tur­ing con­tor­tion­ists, ma­gi­cians, passed canapes and, of course, tast­ing the Cail­leteau.

The Cail­leteau is made from red Ga­may, the same grapes the French use to make Beau­jo­lais Nou­veau, the fun and fresh wine that’s re­leased world­wide on the third Thurs­day of November every year as a har­bin­ger of the vin­tage’s quality.

Tick­ets to the party are $15 for Quails’ Gate Wine Club mem­bers and $25 for ev­ery­body else at Quail­
