Beaujolais Nouveau November 17 2022

beaujolais2022 carra nouveau webpage01

Beaujolais Nouveau Day is the third Thursday in November. Under French law, the wine is released at 12:01 a.m., just weeks after the wine's grapes have been harvested. France celebrates the occasion with fireworks, music and festivals. Parties are held throughout the country and other parts of the world to celebrate the first wine of the season.

The wine originated about a century ago as a 'vin de l'année' - a cheap and cheerful drink produced by locals to celebrate the end of the harvest season. The Beaujolais AOC was established in 1937, and after WWII the wine was sold outside of the area. By the 1970's, Beaujolais Nouveau day was a national event.

The region of Beaujolais is 34 miles long from north to south, and 7 to 9 miles wide. There are nearly 4,000 grape growers who make their living in this picturesque region just north of France's third largest city, Lyon.

The Gamay grapes that go into Beaujolais Nouveau are handpicked, as are all the grapes in the Beaujolais. Beaujolais & Champagne are the only vineyards where hand harvesting is mandatory. Gamay (Gamay noir Jus Blanc) is the only grape permitted for Beaujolais.

Beaujolais Nouveau cannot be made from grapes grown in the 10 crus (great growths) of Beaujolais; only from grapes coming from the appellations of Beaujolais and Beaujolais-Villages. Approximately 1/3 of the entire crop of the Beaujolais region is sold as Beaujolais Nouveau.

Nouveau is made with carbonic maceration, or whole-berry fermentation. This technique preserves the fresh, fruity quality of the grapes without extracting bitter tannins from the grape skins. The result is an easy-drinking, cherry-red, tasty, clean wine that is best served chilled. Beaujolais Nouveau is meant to be consumed young, within 5-7 months.

Beaujolais Nouveau Day for 2022 is Thursday, November 17th. Kysela is proud to offer Beaujolais Nouveau from Manoir du Carra. Nouveau sells out on the release day, so contact your KPF representative, state distributor or local retailer to place a pre-order now!

Kysela is Going Green!

KPF is going green!

We are actively growing our portfolio of certified organic wines. In just a few years, we've gone from less than 20 certified organic selections to over 60 & counting - plus many, many more wineries who are using organic methods and are in the process of gaining certification. We also have wines that are certified biodynamic, vegan & kosher.

We are excited about the efforts that our winery partners are taking toward organic, biodynamic and sustainable agriculture. We are seeing some exceptional wines made using green methods, from all parts of the world.
