    Long Beach, CA

    A tradition started centuries ago in Beaujolais, France to signal and celebrate the end of wine harvest, these are new wines that are bottled and sold anywhere from three weeks to three months after grapes are plucked from the vine. What makes them so delicious is that they undergo carbonic maceration which leads to fresh, fruit-forward and simply gulpable drinking experience that pairs with any and all holiday-fare. In the past decade or so, American winemakers have joined the Nouveau Day fun and have started producing Nouveau wines prior to the holiday madness.
