Over 100 members of the French-American community of Detroit assembled at The Stand Gastro Bistro in Birmingham to celebrate Beaujolais Nouveau Day on November 19, 2015.
FACC Michigan Chapter was pleased to partner with the Alliance Française de Detroit/French Institute of Michigan and Alliance Française de Grosse Pointe to host this social networking evening and uncork this year's Beaujolais Nouveau wine.
Guests mingled, networked, and enjoyed an exclusive Georges DuBoeuf Beaujolais Nouveau wine bar, sponsored by WJ Deutsch, along with a selection of French cheeses, charcuterie, appetizers and desserts. Various attendees won prizes from our Harvest Raffle, including a unique houseware gift donated by ArtLoft Boutique, Red Wings tickets donated by Faurecia, and a gift certificate to West Elm donated by Signature Sotheby's.
The FACC Michigan Chapter Beaujolais Nouveau event was one of various wine and Beaujolais Nouveau Festivals hosted by chapters of the FACC across the United States to gather members and local business communities together to celebrate France's renowned wine and Beaujolais Nouveau traditions.
