Every year, on the third week of November, the Beaujolais Nouveau is released. The Alliance Française de Charlotte invites you to join us in celebrating the first grape harvest of the season.

This is an authentic French tradition celebrated around the globe. Charlotte is one of the few cities in the United States recognized as having an official Beaujolais Celebration by the Union Interprofessionnelle des Vins du Beaujolais.
