Head on down to the Haight-Brown Vineyard [HBV] in Litchfield, Conn., this weekend for an everything-you-can-think-of-French celebration of wine, food, music and culture.
A Beaujolais style wine is the closest to a white wine that a red can get...which yes, makes Beaujolais a light bodied, easy-to-drink red. This Saturday and Sunday, at 1,2 or 3 p.m., HBV welcomes visitors into their wine cellar to learn about their 2009 Beaujolais debut. With the lesson fini, you can head upstairs to the winery to taste other HBV wines, French foods, bask in the French music, and have a glass of the new Beaujolais named, Nouveau Foch. Limited release HBV wine glass, hot cocoa and hot cider included in $20 admission cost. Call to reserve your preferred cellar tour and tasting time. Take a look online for directions and information.
