Thanks to Denis for sending:

“Beaujolais Nouveau is usually a huge worldwide event, with millions celebrating all over the world. Last year, we had close to 800 people at the French Embassy. French restaurants celebrate it too, but we have by far the largest and most entertaining Beaujolais Nouveau event.

Obviously, we cannot do it this way this year, so we’re doing it online (November 21st). There will be French music, a virtual wine tasting, a food tasting and cooking demo by a French Chef, a wine trivia game and the event will finish with a DJ. Read More
