Levine Museum of the New South
Annually, the Charlotte International Cabinet and Alliance Française
celebrate the "Les premières vendanges" or first grape harvest of the year. This is an authentic French tradition celebrated around the globe. Charlotte is honored to be one of 16 cities in the United States recognized as an official Beaujolais city by the Union Interprofessionelle des Vins du Beaujolais, the association governing this wine producing region of France.
Beaujolais Nouveau wine is released the third Thursday of November. That Friday we ask you to join us in celebration by sampling this fresh young wine and a few other selections from the Beaujolais region. While enjoying the Beaujolais Nouveau and several other great wines from the region you can snack on various French Fare cheeses and saucisson.
The festival includes silent auctions, traditional French country hors d'oeuvres, cooking demonstrations, and raffle ticket prizes.
