Wine fanciers visiting Bali this week can participate in the world-wide phenomenon of the arrival of Beaujolais Nouveau.

Is the late November rush each year to imbibe wines bottled only days before a sacred date on the international wine calendar or an oenologist's equivalent of Valentine's day - some clever marketing device to sell off an over-bountiful harvest?

In the End, It's a Great Reason to Throw a Party!

While the debate on the true merits of Beaujolais Nouveau will be never-ending, there's no doubt that the hype of using jet aircraft, police escorts and even parachute drops to ensure that people far removed from France are able to drink a wine before it ages has created a party atmosphere enjoyed by many around the globe. In fact, an estimated 62 million plus bottles of this year's harvest will be consumed in short order starting from November 15th until supplies run dry. And, by any measure, that's a very serious amount of wine consumption.

In Bali, through the valiant efforts of the Honorary French Counsel, M. Raphael Devianne, an ample supply of Beaujolais Nouveau 2006 will be on hand at a special community-wide celebration to be held on Friday, November 24, 2006 at the Melia Bali Villas & Spa Resort.

Held in the Resort's Puri Bali Room, the celebration of this year's vintage will include a cocktail reception, French buffet and copious quantities of the night's special guest of honor - Beaujolais Nouveau.

Cost of participation is Rp. 250,000 net per person (approximately US$ 27).

Tickets can be purchased from the Melia Bali Villas & Spa or from the French Consulate in Bali. Telephone ++62-(0)361-285485 or ++62-(0)361-771510.
