Every third Thursday of November, the French region of Beaujolais and the whole of France celebrate the launch of Beaujolais Nouveau – the “new” wine from the rich, fertile grape fields and wineries of Beaujolais Region.
For the last 22 years, the French Chamber of Commerce in the Philippines -Le Club has been celebrating “Soirée Beaujolais”, in keeping with tradition, to welcome the “arrival” of this young wine and discover this year’s aroma.
Travelife Magazine, the leading travel and lifestyle publication, is once again a proud partner of this truly enjoyable event.

SOIREE BEAUJOLAIS 2013
Soirée Beaujolais 2013 will be held at the elegant Manila Hotel Tent City, to accommodate more than 1,500 guests from the diplomatic, corporate and social registers.
This will also serve as a reunion of all French nationals in the Philippines.
The venue, which will be decorated by Mari Hilario of Creative Files, will be converted into a Parisian arrondissement with booths elegantly arranged to replicate the boulangeries, fromageries, bistros, salons, boutiques and other quaint shops on the streets of Paris.
SLICES OF PARISIAN LIFE
According to Jean Caillard, managing director of FCC-Le Club, the whole gala will recreate scenes from life in Paris, including the cooing of doves, early morning scenes, musicians on the street, and afternoon tea.
At the end, there will be the traditional uncorking of the wine by French Ambassador Gilles Garachon and FCC- Le Club President Cyril Rocke in the presence of all the directors of the French Chamber of Commerce in the Philippines.
Theater performers will follow, climaxing with an elegant couture and jewelry show.
There will also be nonstop dancing with music supplied by the Major Impact Band.
All the wine, cheese and delicatessen are being specially flown in from France.
Meanwhile the Manila Hotel will prepare hors d'oeuvres, charcuterie, oysters, salads, hot French cuisine, pastries and the fabulous desserts which the hotel is noted for.
