Before you dig in on a Thanksgiving Turkey, you’ll need to relax with a glass of wine. Thankfully, Beaujolais Nouveau, the annual time of the year when we celebrate a new wine from France, is coming up. Here is a selection of places where you can try the 2018 Beaujolais Nouveau wine in New York.
French American Chamber of Commerce (FACC)
Drink and “networkez,” as the French say. The FACC will serve a Beaujolais Georges Duboeuf and a buffet of charcuterie and cheeses in the store Alton Lane on Thursday, November 15th. The guests can even have a one of a kind experience getting their measurements in 3D in Alton Lane’s innovative dressing rooms. Thursday, November 15 from 6pm to 8pm. Alton Lane, 7 Harrison St, NY 10013.
