BEUAJOLAIS ADDENDUM

  • Our Beaujolaid party at 1905 is SOLD OUT – but U Street wine bar Vinoteca is having their own, first annual, Beaujolais NO-veau celebration. The annual release of Beaujolais Nouveau inspires wine-related celebrations around the world and though often criticized for being ‘young’ and ‘simple’, Vinoteca is showcasing a selection of complex, unique “Better Beaujolais” on Thursday, November 15. All day on the 15th, Vinoteca will offer $10 specials on two unique, artisan Beaujolais wines: one from the esteemed “Cru” appellation and one rare white Beaujolais made with Chardonnay grapes (Beaujolais blancs make up only 1% of the region’s wines).
  • Bistro du Coin is also having a Beaujolais Nouveau celebration.
  • The French Embassy is hosting a more upscale Beaujolais from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. with a gourmet menu, silent auction, live jazz and a DJ. Tickets are $70.
  • For a dinner oriented option Bistro Bistro is offering a four-course dinner paired with Beaujolais, starting at $40.00.
