Wine lovers can soon get their hands on a limited quantity vintage arriving from France.
Beaujolais Nouveau will arrive at BC Liquor Stores beginning Nov. 15 in spite of severe frost and low yields this year in the Beaujolais region. The B.C. Liquor Distribution Branch secured 1200 cases of the wine which is released worldwide in November each year.
The wine is made from Gamay grapes in the Beaujolais region of France. It's intended for immediate drinking and not for keeping. The wines show definite variation between vintages and as such are used as a first indicator of the quality of the year's regional harvest.
