Beaujolais nouveau

23 November 2019

EXCLUSIVE WINE, CHEESE, JAZZ AND A FABULOUS VIEW OF BRISBANE



Beaujolais Nouveau is the world's most popular vin de primeur. A red wine, made from Gamay grapes born in the region south of Burgundy, it is produced and bottled only a few weeks after harvest and is meant to be consumed immediately - not aged, like many other varieties of wine. Released only once a year, it is a requirement under French law that this light and fruity wine not be distributed until 12:01am on the third Thursday of November each year. In France, a race to carry the first bottle of Beaujolais nouveau to Paris has become a national event, with cafés and bars across the city announcing when "Le Beaujolais nouveau est arrivé!"

We are importing Beaujolais Nouveau straight from France for this event!


Beaujolais Nouveau tasting & celebration

THE VENUE



Newstead house is Brisbane’s oldest surviving home, established in 1846. This iconic landmark has evolved from a simple Georgian cottage into a grand residence following significant renovations and extensions in 1867. The house occupies a commanding position within Newstead Park, with sweeping views of the Hamilton and Bulimba reaches of the Brisbane River.  Newstead House is an established house museum, decorated and furnished to reflect the late Victorian period and is a significant part of Brisbane history.









OUR EXPERT

We have the pleasure of welcoming the owner of Bottli,  Nathalie Taquet who will present this year's Beaujolais.

About Nathalie

One year ago, I made a crazy bet: move to Australia to have an international experience with my husband and three children. I am from a wine industry family, and things which are normal in France, (the cork, the corkscrew and the "pop" noise) are not essential in Australia. This observation, my family history and my passion lead to a new project. This is how Bottli is born. Through Bottli, I share high quality French wine, made with heart and dedication by independent French wine makers. I provide not only great wine, but also the history behind their making. We design wine boxes to be enjoyed at home, from a wide diversity of wine makers. And as each bottle travels the world, it carries inside the craftsmen’s life stories This project is me, it makes me vibrate, it is discovery of great wine. I look forward to sharing the stories of BN with you.

ABOUT BOTTLI
