GAMAY MEETS GRAFFITI
Omni Dallas Hotel Celebrates Art and Beaujolais Nouveau November 18
As part of the national celebration Nouveau Expression, French Beaujolais winemaker and longtime arts supporter Georges Duboeuf is bringing a party of the senses to Dallas at a Nouveau Expression food and wine tasting November 18 at the Omni Dallas Hotel from 7 – 9 p.m.
Presented by The French-American Chamber of Commerce of Dallas/Fort Worth (FACC), the party will include a chance to meet Miss Texas 2011 along with music by DJ Jeff Hickock, food and wine tasting, a silent auction and more. General admission is $60 and discounts apply with parties of four or more. To make a reservation please e-mail email@example.com or call 972.241.0111. To purchase tickets in advance, please visit www.faccdallas.com. Tickets will be available at the door for $65.
The event also celebrates the first taste of the 2011 vintage as it coincides with the arrival of the 2011 Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau, a fresh and fruity red wine made from the local Gamay grape that is released after midnight annually on the third Thursday in November. The 2011 Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau, with a first-ever graffiti-inspired label designed by renowned Brooklyn artist “Kaves,” will be available nationwide at a retail price of $10. Nouveau is a very popular wine for serving during the holidays; its ripe berry aromas and flavors are food-friendly and versatile with many dishes.
Nouveau Expression is a celebration of creativity, self expression and enjoying the moment. It's a fun, vibrant new way for Duboeuf to connect with its Beaujolais Nouveau’s enthusiasts through art and for people to connect with each other through social media and celebrations around the U.S. We’re planning Nouveau Expression parties around the nation and are delighted to be celebrating in Dallas, TX”, said Franck Duboeuf, co-proprietor of Les Vins Georges Duboeuf.
