Beaujolais Nouveau Day is coming!


Beaujolais Nouveau Day is coming up on Thursday, November 20th.

Beaujolais Nouveau is a red wine made from Gamay grapes produced in the Beaujolais region of France. It is the most popular vin de primeur, fermented for just a few weeks before being released for sale on the third Thursday of November. This “Beaujolais Nouveau Day” used to see heavy marketing, with races to get the first bottles to different markets around the globe. The current release practice is to ship the wine ahead of the third Thursday of November, and release it to the local markets at 12:01 a.m. local time.

I am looking forward to sampling the 2014 releases soon. Reviews to follow. Just in time for Would Bukowski Drink It?’s 1 Year Anniversary and Thanksgiving.

I am pleased to announce that reviews from Would Bukowski Drink It? will be featured on shelf talkers in the wine sections at Marketime Foods and Ken’s Markets in the Fremont and Phinney Ridge neighborhoods in Seattle WA. I frequent Marketime and they are a common source for wines I review. So if you live in the area, you can soon choose your wines by my 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 Buk ratings and comments soon. Just look for Bukowski’s face! Thanks to Greg Stiles from Marketime.
