Celebration of Beaujolais Nouveau

Autumn is full of warm colors and flavors, it is one of my favorite seasons, I was born in October and naturally aligned with this season. The land abounds of earthy food. I remember walking in my grandfather’s land through rows of tall grains swaying in the warm winds ready to be harvested. His vineyards were my favorite places, full of beautiful fat grapes hanging off old branches with foliage rich of jewel colors. I knew at a young age, one day I was going to like wines and it didn’t take very long. My parents gave me a taste of wine diluted with water every time I asked for it. In Italy, it is common for kids to taste life in small bites at a time, it makes them feel grown ups.

My appetizers with Beaujolais Nouveau

For the last seventy years, the third Thursday of November has been declared the day of the Beaujolais Nouveau. It’s a celebration of the new wine, made in the South of France as a way to be thankful to nature for a good harvest and people’s dedication to hard work. I remember the day of the harvest of our local Puglia wines, the workers getting together with my grandfather and my family to celebrate in the vineyards singing, eating, and drinking. The celebration of new wines is the same everywhere there are passionate people about wines. It was a happy time for everybody, and I didn’t even understand what was all about, I just knew I wanted to be there in the middle of the fun.

Beaujolais Nouveau grows in a region right under the Burgundy area, made of Gamay grape, very fruity, with a purple-pink coloration, it is always served slightly chilled. It’s a “fresh wine” with low tannin, easy to drink especially in the company of friends. Look at how Japanese people enjoy this day of celebration. One woman in this video says Beaujolais Nouveau is good for the skin and relaxes her.

Well, all the wines do that. Wines are works of art for a relaxed lifestyle, they express emotions, the flavors of the terroir, and express personal experiences, in fact, not every one tastes the same thing.

So very little is going on these dark days, let’s take what we can, let’s celebrate peace, life and love. Let’s be in the light and in nature with all that brings us excitement. Ciao.

    Hi Valentina, I also enjoy a glass of wine. Only one, though, as I like to savour it.

    Wonderful memories and how better to appreciate wine than be at the heart of its creation.
