I've made it to my life's goal - the old age pension. Now I write for fun. Hope you enjoy reading.
Update November 16th 2017
Beaujolais Nouveau 2017 is now sold out

Le Beaujolais nouveau est arrivé

It's harvest time so get ready for the early release of Beaujolais Nouveau. Gather up a group of friends and family and join in this wonderful French tradition.

Every year Alliance Française de Brisbane commemorates the Beaujolais Nouveau maintaining this wonderful French tradition where only the newly harvest grapes are fermented for a very short period. The enthusiastic activity of wine producers begins the new harvest and prepares for a quick fermentation to ensure the Beaujolais Nouveau is released for sale at 12:01am on the third Thursday of November (You may have noticed below that Brisbanites are a bit more laid-back and are prepared to wait until 4.00pm on Saturday for the fun to commence).

Beaujolais Nouveau's Before and After Shots

Although Saturday is a bit later than tradition dictates, be assured the Beaujolais Nouveau 2017 has been shipped ahead from France to Brisbane and will be ready for a fabulous afternoon of celebration.

To be a part of this make your way over to Newstead House, situated in Newstead Park at the corner of Breakfast Creek Road and Newstead Avenue, Brisbane on Saturday, 18 November, 2017 where the Brisbane celebrations will begin at 6.00pm.

Tickets to this wonderful annual event are now available so get in quick or you could miss out on a tradition that is really all about having fun because this event is not being held anywhere else in Brisbane!

Admission is $50 for Alliance Francaise members and $60 for non-members. Reserve your place and purchase your tickets on-line:
Alliance Francaise members here; and

If you're not sure what the celebration is all about then you should come along and learn from a Master. Peter Scudamore-Smith is a Master of Wine, the highest achievement in the global wine community and an honour that has been bestowed on only 325 people world-wide; with Peter being only the second Australian to receive such high recognition.

Peter is recognised globally as a wine educator, wine assessor and wine show judge and is a most influential and entertaining speaker. He will expand your knowledge and enjoyment of wine tasting and food pairing for all occasions. But, at this event, he will have a particular focus on enjoying and understanding the characteristics of Beaujolais Nouveau.

If you are a lover of fine French wine, or perhaps, would like to become more of an aficionado of the finer things in life, then this is a very rare opportunity to combine a traditional Beaujolais Nouveau celebration with expert guidance from a real Master of Wine.

In addition to tantalising the tastebuds with Beaujolais Nouveau you will enjoy a selection of delightful French cheeses and other mouth-watering French delicacies. These will include a fantastic opportunity to taste, and then to buy, exquisite French cheeses from Brisbane's premier provedore of specialty foods, Black Pearl Epicure – if you think you have tasted exquisite cheese before, you wait until you try these!

It makes you feel relaxed just looking at it, se mettre d'accord?

That's not all though. Brisbane's French charcuterie, Deliss, is also going to be on hand providing samples of its mixture of locally made artisan French food and high quality imported French specialities.

Beaujolais Nouveau is one of those celebrations everybody looks forward to (a bit like Christmas but without the need to put up with all the family). It's a celebration of even more than drinking and eating as you will have an opportunity during the afternoon to take part in a funny and entertaining quiz which has some great prizes to be won.

Your Comment
Congrats on your comp place Tony. Wine and cheese is always divine. To Kate, when articles have the same number of votes then from memory placing in the comp is based on who entered their article first or which one was published first. Vanessa would be able to confirm this.
