Chelan Nouveau
Dates:
April 21, 2012 - April 22, 2012
Location:
Lake Chelan Wine Valley
Description:
Lake Chelan Wineries Celebrate Nouveau Releases April 21-22 and April 28-29, 2012 Nouveau, which means “new” in French, is a term borrowed from the celebrations that occurred initially throughout wine-loving Paris and now across France, when each new and much anticipated vintage of Beaujolais was transported into the city from outlying vineyards. Enthusiastic Parisians crowded into cafes and restaurants to try the newest wine, eager to stock their own wine cellars with the enticing young wines. During back to back weekends in April, the eighteen wineries of the Lake Chelan Wine Valley will celebrate the release of "nouveau" white and rose' wines. All of the premier, award-winning locally produced wines will be available for tasting and purchasing – but the spotlight will be on the vibrant young, never-before-offered releases. A comprehensive list of Nouveau wine releases, tasting room hours and special event activities planned at each winery can be found at the Lake Chelan Wine Valley site, www.LakeChelanWineValley.com. Free wine tour maps are available at the Lake Chelan Chamber of Commerce and many area businesses.
