Celebrating Beaujolais Nouveau, a wine trade fair and a wine museum
As winter chills Paris our thoughts turn to the consoling joys of wine! Happily, there are major wine-related events and attractions to bring a sparkle to the season, including the traditional Beaujolais Nouveau celebration and the Salon des Vins de Vignerons Indépendants. In addition, the Musée du Vin offers a thorough exploration of oenology, just a few steps from the Hotel Passy Eiffel.
Celebrate the Beaujolais Nouveau on November 15th
Every year, the third Thursday of November brings the arrival of the Beaujolais Nouveau onto the world market. Celebrate this friendly tradition by downing a glass or two of Beaujolais, a light and fruity wine that is the first to be bottled after the harvest. Join in with the fun at your favourite Parisian bistro.
Welcome to the Salon des Vins de Vignerons Indépendants
From November 30th to December 4th, the Salon des Vins de Vignerons Independants (Wine and Independent Winemakers trade fair) will be held at the Porte de Versailles Exhibition Centre.
