2016 Fête du Beaujolais Nouveau: un grand succès!

cb-wine-pour-2-sfwWell over 200 Alliance members, students and friends celebrated the first wine of the harvest at La Fête du Beaujolais Nouveau on Saturday, November 19 – one of our best-attended events ever! Guests enjoyed two types of Beaujolais Nouveau, premium Cru Beaujolais wines, delicious hors d’oeuvres and desserts, live music, a silent auction and raffle, and great conversation, all in the beautiful Silverado Design Center. We’d like to thank all who attended, and extend a grand merci to our sponsors, donors, event host, MC, volunteers, and the committee members who have been working for months to make the Fête possible.
