Our biggest event of the year, the Beaujolais & Beyond Celebration, has taken place at our partner's venue, La Maison Francaise, Embassy of France on Nov. 16th:

Our first-ever Beaujolais partnership with the Alliance Francaise de Washington has paid off, as over 700 participants have gathered to celebrate the opening of the 2012 bottles.

Almost 20 cases of Beaujolais have been drunk on that festive night, as well as other wines from around the world (California, Southern France, Italy and Spain) thanks to the generous donation of W.J. Deutsch & Sons.
