Celebrating Beaujolais Nouveau

Episode Notes

A note from Stephanie...

I arrived at our local liquor store around noon on Thursday, November 15th and watched - in awe - as a lady was scrambling to fill a shopping cart with the artfully-displayed bottles arranged under the sign that said “Le Beaujolais Nouveau est arrivé!”

It's popularity is growing in North America every year.

But if you aren't quick enough, your local store may run out before you decide to try a bottle.
