Beaujolais Nouveau

Thursday, 18. November 2010

It could have been in France, the Beaujolais Nouveau wine festival organized by the French South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

They booked whole Stanley44, and when you entered the place you did hear more French than English talk. Not only there was a very French looking lady singing chansons, but also the whole ambiance very French.
Sitting or standing under olive trees on Petanque play fields,
the Beaujolais Nouveau,
great cheeses – I have to say they were imported -,
and even the weather – a rather chilly and misty night felt pretty much a third Thursday of November night in France.

It was great fun.
