Thursday, November 19, 2009 at 6:30pm

Each year, the arrival of the latest vintage of Beaujolais Nouveau brings wine lovers to FIAF for a special evening of tasting and celebration in the classic French tradition.

This highly anticipated event will be an occasion for our guests to mingle while sampling vintages from various companies, and indulging in French delicacies such as pâtés, cheeses, charcuterie, and more.

The evening’s events will include welcoming new inductees into Les Compagnons du Beaujolais and performances by singers Josephine Ancelle and Nicole Renaud.

This year's inductees are:
Renaud Dutreil, Chairman of LVMH Inc. in New York
Nicole Fischelis, Vice President & Fashion Director for Macy's Inc.

Various prizes will be raffled off throughout the evening, including the grand prize:
a pair of round-trip tickets to Paris courtesy of American Airlines and a stay in Le Chateau de Pizay located in the Beaujolais region in France.

Join us for this festive tradition!
