The cause of much revelry in France and among francophiles in other countries, Beaujolais Nouveau wines are traditionally released the third Thursday of November. (This year, November 18. 2010) They are the first wines out of harvest each year and are drunk to celebrate life and hard work. They’re also a perfect accompaniment for a girlfriend get-together—fresh, cheap, fruity and fun to drink. The informal, frivolous spirit surrounding their release around the world is a great excuse to get the girls together and celebrate!

If you’d like more background on Beaujolais Nouveau, there’s a nice little history from the IntoWine website here.

Setting and setup

For Beaujolais Nouveau Day 2008, the timing is a bit last-minute, so clean up the kitchen and the party room and be done with it. Adding twinkle lights or plenty of candles is always a festive touch. You will, of course, need to be outfitted with wine glasses and a corkscrew. Chill the wine beforehand, because Beaujolais Nouveau is served chilled–half an hour in the fridge is perfect according to the Georges DuBeoef website.


Anyvite is the speediest way to create an electronic or mobile-friendly invite. It even lets you search flickr for cool photos (we searched “beaujolais nouveau” and came up with many good choices) or insert a photo of your own.

Food and drink

Run out on Thursday and buy some Beaujolais Nouveau, and chill it down. Your local wine merchant should be able to help you find some. George DuBeouf (pictured above at its 2005 arrival) is a commonly seen brand  in the U.S., with a price of about $7 -$8 per bottle. The company even offers Beaujolais Nouveau party planning tips and a calculator to help you figure out how much wine to buy. There are other brands too, so be adventurous and try a few. Maybe you will even want to have a mini tasting with your gal pals. The Mommessin Beaujolais Nouveau, pictured at right, comes in three different, cute label designs, each depicting a fabulous destination: San Francisco, Paris and Tokyo. The company describes them as light and juicy and perfect for entertaining. In addition, their new package introduces PET plastic bottles– environmentally friendly, recyclable plastic that uses up to 50% less resources to produce and ship over from France. They are priced around $12 – $13 per bottle.

Serve a selection of French cheeses to try with your Beaujolais Nouveau. Your wine merchant, local TraderJoes or Whole Foods should be able to help you select some within your budget. If you’d like to explore further, there’s an article about pairing wine and cheese here. Slice up a baguette, arrange on a cheese board or pretty serving tray, and voila!

You could also serve some tapas-style appetizers if you are inclined to spend just a bit more time in the kitchen. Check out Easy Tapas: Spanish Snacks to Serve With Cocktails for some recipes to try.

Connecting Activities

-Toast your girlfriends with our special girlfriend salute:

A Toast to our Girlfriends

Here’s to our girlfriends

They keep us strong

They make us laugh the whole night long

They give us shoulders to cry on

And shoes to try on

They see our true selves

Even when we look like hell

So raise a glass to our female friends

May the fun we share never end!


-It would be fun to share some French trivia, learn some French phrases, or watch some French films during your Bojo Day soiree.

-You can also copy our Which Wine are You quiz for a fun diversion.

-Or, keep the girls occupied making their own beaded wine charms. You’ll find an awesome how-to for “Ridiculously Easy” beaded wine charms on NotMartha.


If you don’t make your own wine charms at the party, buy some as favors to give your friends. Pretty wine charms are a lovely and useful favor, and you can find them at many discount stores. See this Set of 6 Toast Wine Marker Charm Set 19 018 as an example.

If nothing else, buy some bottles of Bojo Nouveau this Thursday, Friday or Saturday, and invite some friends over to share a little girlfriend spirit. It’s such an easy excuse for a girlfriend get-together. We know we’re doing it!
