22nd Annual "Beaujolais & Beyond" Festival
“BEAUJOLAIS AND BEYOND”
Hosted by the French-American Chamber of Commerce of Los Angeles
The French-American Chamber of Commerce of Los Angeles carries out the
time-honored tradition of welcoming the Beaujolais to the Southland for an
evening of sumptuous wine-tasting that is complimented by an array of fine
French foods, beverages, and a silent auction that includes a trip to France
and Tahiti (French Polynesia).
The 22nd annual “Beaujolais & Beyond “ Food and Wine Festival is the
Los Angeles premiere tasting of the 2005 Beaujolais Nouveau which will have
just arrived from France the day before for worldwide tasting. It is the
largest of its kind on the West Coast, attracting wine connoisseurs and
Francophiles alike from West Los Angeles to the Valley to Orange County. They
come eager to taste the first crop of Beaujolais and various productions from
French and American vineyards, a complimentary food from French restaurants,
gourmet food importers and local bakeries.
Beginning as early as the 19th century, the wine-growers of the Beaujolais
region would sell their harvest early. Then in the early 1950’s after the
Second World War it became chic all around the world to consume Beaujolais
wines before the aging process began. It was in 1985 that the release of the
Beaujolais Nouveau would formally take place on the third Thursday of November
each year. The Beaujolais Nouveau is red with violet hues and has a distinctive
fragrance of red grapes, small red fruits, and floral scents.
