Paris Las Vegas has announced its 2nd Annual Beaujolais Nouveau Celebration, set to kick-off November 20. Honoring the long tradition regulated by French law, Beaujolais Nouveau, a red wine made from Gamay grapes in the Beaujolais region of France, is released no sooner than the third Thursday of November, when it is ready for consumption just six weeks after the harvest. Thus, at one minute past midnight, huge celebrations are held all over the world to taste the latest wine. More than 65 million bottles of Beaujolais Nouveau will be consumed in the months to follow.
Festivities will commence one minute past midnight on Thursday, November 20 with the delivery of the wine launching the weekend of activities to celebrate the 2008 release. Paris Las Vegas will host special events, tastings and unique Beaujolais Nouveau featured wine pairing menus at its restaurants.
