Il est arrivé!!

Like the rest of France, our dear Stephane is shouting out the phrase: ”Beaujolais Nouveau has finally arrived!” Every year on the third Thursday in November the new wine is published, and not a minute before. In France this is an old and strong tradition, and it is also famous in the rest of the world. The ritual is the same if you are in Lyon, Paris, New York, Rio de Janeiro, Tokyo, London or Oslo, and also in our school in Antibes.

The school staff has arranged a free tasting of the new wine, and it was a great success. Together with beautiful decoration, bread and cheese, it all created a good atmosphere under the sun of the French Riviera.

Teachers and students enjoyed the wine from Beaujolais, all gathered together to celebrate the autumn and the French tradition. Beaujolais Nouveau is the first wine from the summers grape, and this year’s edition is delicious!

Ladies and gentlemen, señores y señoritas, mesdames et messieurs, it’s time for Beaujolais Nouveau !!

    Vive le Beaujolais nouveau!

    I spent 4 weeks in the Beaujolais in September picking Gamay grapes which are then used to produce the Beaujolais nouveau!! Not many people know this but the reason why this wine attracts media coverage is because it is sold within weeks of the harvest!
