Growing in popularity, this year’s Beaujolais & Beyond Festival gathering for the annual wine harvest in France will take place at La Maison Française (at the Embassy of France) on November 21 at 8pm.
In addition to a selection of French breads, cheeses, pâtés and pastries, small plates will be provided by restaurants such as ICI Urban Bistrot and Paul Bakery. Guests will be treated to free-flowing Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau, in addition to a selection of wines from France, Italy, Spain and California (see list below).
To complement the libations, festivities will include a local DJ and dancing, a blind tasting contest, trivia quiz, silent auction featuring French products and a raffle for round-trip tickets to Paris from Air France!
From 7:00 to 8:00 prior to the party, VIP ticket holders will enter the heart of the Embassy to enjoy a private tasting event with respected members and personalities from Washington’s political and professional circles. General Admission starts after 8 pm.
