After a great vacation I can't think of anything better than having a nice bottle of wine waiting for me! Featured on this week's Happy Hour with Hannah and Otto's Wine & Spirits is the Beaujolais Nouveau from Georges Duboeuf. This is a very special wine because it's the "first wine of the harvest" and anticipated by wine lovers around the world who look forward to celebrating the arrival of this festive wine every year on the third Thursday of November. It's so special they've even made it "Beaujolais Nouveau Day"! We're so lucky to be able to enjoy this wine as Georges Deboeuf is the most recognized producer of the Beaujolais!
This wine is medium to dry and a lighter, easier drinking red. It's full-bodied with fresh, fruit-forward notes of strawberries and raspberries and will pair great with Thanksgiving and Christmas meals! Just in time for the holidays! It's best served with a light chill and is great to drink on its own too.
What I think is really neat about this wine though is the label. It's different every year and this is the first year it the wine's history, an artist's work is on its label. According to Cision PR Newswire, it was done by fan vote on social media.
Wine lovers look forward to the release of the Beaujolais Nouveau so don't wait to pick it up! Head to Otto's Wine & Spirits today and don't forget to join me for another Happy Hour with Hannah on Friday, December 1st! We'll be LIVE on the 95.7 BIG FM Facebook Page!
