WINE connoisseurs from Guildford are this Thursday (November 15, 2012) being invited to a bar in the town to celebrate the arrival of this year's bottles of Beaujolais Nouveau.
Staff at Bar des Arts are inviting people to join them as they uncork their first bottles on Thursday, November 15.
Sara Burks, Co-owner of Bar des Arts, which is located opposite the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre in Millbrook, said: "We are really looking forward to hosting another Beaujolais Nouveau evening. It is a great way to celebrate and feel involved with one of the most exciting rituals of the wine world.
"We are hoping that people will join us to raise a glass of Beaujolais Nouveau and to enjoy an evening of live music with popular French performer Sacha Page, who will give the evening a true Parisian vibe."
Sacha will be performing a number of his own contemporary and classic tracks along with well-known covers.
On the third Thursday of November every year more than a million cases of Beaujolais Nouveau are sent to Paris ready to be shipped around the world. This has become a race for business to become the first to serve the new wine of the harvest.
On Thursday, November 15 bottles of Beaujolais Nouveau will be available at Bar des Arts for customers to buy priced at £19 per bottle.
Bar des Arts is a café by day and a wine and cocktail bar by night. A range of wine, beers, cocktails and soft drinks will also be available to purchase during the evening, along with tapas.
The bar hosts a variety of events including live music and performance, exhibitions and open mic nights.
Tables can be booked by calling the bar on 01483 453227 or emailing email@example.com. Booking is essential for the Beaujolais Nouveau evening.
