Come join us for a special night to celebrate le Beaujolais Nouveau, this French wine tradition which celebrates the end of the harvest in France.

At one minute past midnight on the third Thursday of each November, from villages and towns like Romanèche-Thorins, over a million cases of Beaujolais Nouveau begin their journey through a sleeping France to Paris for immediate shipment to all parts of the world.

Banners proclaim the good news: “Le Beaujolais Nouveau est arrivé! / The New Beaujolais has arrived!”

Be one of the first to sample the new edition with the Alliance Française Wellington’s special celebration on Thursday 20 November. Tickets are $20 for AFW members, and $25 for non-members and include French wine, delicious French nibbles ( in partnership with Maison Vauron) , French Cancan, accordéon and more!
