Wine time

Living France - - Decouvrez -

At one minute past mid­night on the third Thurs­day in Novem­ber, the Beau­jo­lais Nou­veau wine is re­leased and ev­ery year it is a cause for cel­e­bra­tion all across France. The big­gest bash is Les Sar­mentelles in the town of Beau­jeu where fes­tiv­i­ties run from 16-20 Novem­ber. The five-day event fea­tures tast­ing tours, a craft market, mu­si­cal per­for­mances and a torch­lit pro­ces­sion into the heart of the vil­lage, in which the rev­ellers’ trail is il­lu­mi­nated by burn­ing vine shoots. There is also a wine tast­ing con­test, the win­ner of which will win their weight in Beau­jeu wine. Let the games be­gin! sar­mentelles.com
