The word from Kermit in France is that 2018 is turning out to be a vintage of very pretty wines. Our vignerons always strive for high quality, but after a number of years of low quantity, vintage 2018 is filling up cellars with an abundance of beautiful fruit and fermenting wine. Needless to say, here in Berkeley, we are downright excited about the arrival of Domaine Dupeuble’s ultra-natural Beaujolais Nouveau, because it will provide us with a sneak peek at what 2018 will offer. The 2018 Nouveau is made in the style that we’ve always insisted upon—estate-grown, hand-harvested, naturally fermented, and unfiltered. Maybe we take our Beaujolais too seriously, but we just like to have serious fun, and that’s what this wine is all about.
GIVE IT A GO!!
Our Nouveau arrives Thursday, November 15, and we’ll sell it in our shop by the bottle and the case. If you’re interested in joining the fun, give us a call any time this month, and we’ll have it ready to be picked up or shipped on the 15th. Also, our Nouveau is sold in many states. Visit kermitlynch.com/nouveau for a list of retailers around the nation who will carry the wine starting Thursday, November 15.
Why not? Join us on Saturday, November 17, for our annual Beaujolais Nouveau party and enjoy a glass or two of the just harvested, freshly fermented, wholly unfiltered Gamay from Domaine Dupeuble. We’ll put up tents in our parking lot and feature live music, hot plates cooked to order, and—of course—an assortment of wines served by the glass for your quaffing pleasure. Christopher Lee, the Old-Fashioned Butcher, will be on hand to sell his handmade, pre-packaged sausages to take away.
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 17 11 A.M. TO 4 P.M.
