FACC-Atlanta’s 32nd Beaujolais Nouveau [fr]
One of the Southeast United States’ biggest Beaujolais Nouveau celebrations will take place right here in Atlanta. The Atlanta Chapter of the French-American Chamber of Commerce invites you to fete the latest grape harvest this November 16 at King Plow Arts Center, one of the city’s premiere event spaces.
The 32nd annual FACC Beaujolais Nouveau is the perfect opportunity to toast to the strong transatlantic ties that bind France and the United States.
Participants are invited to share in the Beaujolais tradition not only by tasting this year’s vintage but also by participating in a silent auction, enjoying excellent food and dancing to a DJ.
Beaujolais is a red wine made from Gamay grapes, fermented for just a few weeks before being released for sale. The wine, produced in the Beaujolais region of France, was traditionally used to celebrate the end of the harvest and before World War II it was only used for local consumption.
The FACC’s mission as a non-profit is to improve the commercial and personal relationships between businesses leaders and communities in France and the United States. The organization encourages the sale of goods and services between both countries and promotes better international understanding. Throughout the year FACC-Atlanta organizes seminars, networking opportunities, professional exchanges and commercial services to help carry out this mission.
