Les Sarmentelles de Beaujeu - Beaujolais Nouveau Day in Les Sarmentelle

From the 20th - the 24th of November

Each third Thursday in November villages and towns in the Beaujolais region celebrate the Beaujolais Nouveau Day. At one past midnight, just weeks after the wine grapes have been harvested, over a million cases of Beaujolais Nouveau begin their journey through France to Paris to be shipped all over the world.

Parties are held throughout the country to celebrate the first wine of the season and all over France you can here Le Beaujolais Nouveau est arrié! “The New Beaujolais has arrived”

The most famous festival in the Beaujolais region is held in Les Sarmentelles, the capital of the region. In the early evening the day before the Beaujolais Nouveau day, the four day festival features wine tasting, dancing and life music. On foot or on board of a little train, go on a musical discovery tour of the 12 appellations of the Beaujolais and the Heritage of its historical capital.

Take part in the tasting contest and win your weight in Beaujolais-Villages Nouveau bottles! Local food and wine is served in heated tents as well as a tasting contest featuring all of the twelve kinds of Beaujolais. Fireworks at midnight mark the release of the new wine, which is drank until dawn!
