Beaujolais festival coming to Maketewah | Arts & Culture
CINCINNATI (FOX19) - As part of the national celebration Nouveau Expression, French Beaujolais winemaker and longtime arts supporter Georges Duboeuf is bringing a party of the senses to Cincinnati at a Nouveau Expression food and wine celebration on November 17 at Maketewah Country Club in Bond Hill from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Presented by French-American Business Alliance of the European-American Chamber of Commerce, the party will include: exclusive Beaujolais wines, dinner buffet with French delicacies and a silent auction. Attendees who register before November 3rd will receive a discounted admission rate of $70 for EACC members and $80 for non-members. After November 3rd, admission for the event is $80 for EACC members and $90 for non-members. Tickets will sell at the door for $100. To register, go to http://www.europe-cincinnati.com/events or call Natalie Bieser at 513-977-8668.
The event also celebrates the first taste of the 2011 vintage as it coincides with the arrival of the 2011 Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau, a fresh and fruity red wine made from the local Gamay grape that is released after midnight annually on the third Thursday in November. The 2011 Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau, with a first-ever graffiti-inspired label designed by renowned Brooklyn artist "Kaves," will be available nationwide at a retail price of $10. Nouveau is a very popular wine for serving during the holidays; its ripe berry aromas and flavors are food-friendly and versatile with many dishes.
Nouveau Expression is a celebration of creativity, self expression and enjoying the moment. It's a fun, vibrant new way for Duboeuf to connect with its Beaujolais Nouveau's enthusiasts through art and for people to connect with each other through social media and celebrations around the U.S. We're planning Nouveau Expression parties around the nation and are delighted to be celebrating in Cincinnati," said Franck Duboeuf, co-proprietor of Les Vins Georges Duboeuf.
