Beaujolais Nouveau (and Not!) Tasting, November 18th

Beaujolais Nouveau (and Not) Tasting

Come celebrate the big release of Beaujolais Nouveau with us on Thursday, November 18th, starting at 7 p.m.!

We'll pay homage to the big Beaujolais release day with some bottles of the fun, fruity wine (and a Beaujo inspired cocktail to boot), but we'll also try some more "grown-up" versions of Beaujolais, including some delicious Beaujolais Villages.

Bring yourself, a bottle of Beaujolais Nouveau (or another young French wine), and $6. We'll provide some fun wines, a cocktail and some appetizers!

Please RSVP to by Sunday, November 14th to secure your spot. The tasting will take place near Chinatown at the home of one of our members, Ali Bart.

Merci Beaucoup!

Watch Out DC!

The DC Chapter of the Young Winos has officially started! We are a group of 20-somethings who share a common interest in wine.  We meet a few times a month and explore different varietals, participate in wine/food related events and plan trips to local wineries. Luckily, we are close to the thriving Virginia Wine Country.

We always welcome new members and new ideas. Feel free to join us and give us your feedback. We are hoping to set up events in the near future so check back regularly for a schedule of all things wine in DC.

Happy Sipping :)
