Wine Club: Beaujolais Beyond Nouveau

  • Henry & Son 1220 Glenwood Avenue Minneapolis, MN, 55405 United States (map)

There is much more to the Beaujolais wine region than just the annual fête du Beaujolais nouveau. Join Alliance Française and Small Lot Wine to learn about Beaujolais from Gamay to grand cru.

Alliance Française Mpls/St Paul invites you to join us and our friends from Small Lot Wine for a guided tasting of wines from the Beaujolais region of France. Well known for the annual tradition of opening a celebratory, but not necessarily complex, bottle of Beaujolais Nouveau, we’ll dig deeper to taste what the Beaujolais region brings to the table.

Their specialty is representing wines that over-deliver on value.
