Beaujeu is a great place to celebrate Beaujolais Nouveau. In a sense, Beaujeu is where it all began... after all, the region got its name from the Lord of Beaujeu so it seems only natural to pay homage to him in the heart of the Beaujolais vineyards.

The Sarmentelles de Beaujeu start on the 3rd Wednesday in November and carry on until the following Sunday. This amazing fête, a social occasion par excellence, is a mixture of tasting competitions, dinners with live entertainment, a torchlight procession and of course discovering Beaujolais Nouveau!
