Riviera Pebbles Blog: Where to celebrate the Beaujolais Nouveau 2014

Posted on 18th Nov 2014 in Nice News


Beaujolais Nouveau 2014

The Beaujolais Nouveau has arrived! Has it been another year already? For the uninitiated, the festival of Beaujolais Nouveau is a chance to celebrate the end of the year and offers the first chance to taste this year's vintage. Celebrated across France, in bars, restaurants, and markets alike, the Beaujolais Nouveau proves itself to be a pleasant evening of wine tasting to enjoy amongst friends. The festival also celebrates the culmination of the previous year’s hard work in the vineyards of the heart of the Rhône-Alpes region in east-central France. The festivities take place on Thursday November 20th and we have put together the top five places to sample the Beaujolais Nouveau in Nice for your convenience.
