For the last 26 years, the French Chamber of Commerce and Industry in the Philippines has been perpetuating the tradition of its famous Soirée Beaujolais to welcome the new harvest and arrival of the young wine, Beaujolais Nouveau. As every year, in November, a share of the 65 million bottles produced in the Beaujolais vineyard will be sent from France to the Philippines, by Ferraud et Fils, in order to celebrate one of the most popular rituals in the wine world: the Beaujolais Nouveau’s uncorking.
A year after celebrating its Silver Anniversary, Soiree Beaujolais goes to Versailles. Imagine Marie Antoinette inviting you to the grandest French event in the country, with her rumored lover Count Axel Van Fersen, her BFFs la Duchesse de Polignac and la Princesse Lamballe. And together, we shall savor good food and wine in a lavish way – just how Marie Antoinette has done it before.
Along with Marie Antoinette, the French community, local and international business groups, dignitaries, and the country’s glittering crowd, we will toast the arrival of Beaujolais Nouveau and taste the fine wines of the Beaujolais Region (Bourguignon Blanc, Fleurie, Brouilly, Cotes Du Rhones, Cinsault Rose’) to complement the vast assortment of cheeses and charcuteries all flown in from France just for the occasion along with sumptuous food prepared by the Marriott Hotel Chef. To ensure great entertainment for everyone there will be an exciting opening dance act, two sets of band, and a DJ who will spin Billboard Top 100 music until the party ends. The ravishing, Issa Litton, will host the night.
Amazing raffle prizes await everyone as well. Enjoy business class flights for you and your companion the next time you fly to the city of lights – Paris, and explore the wonders of Versailles. If you are lucky, you may also walk away with premium wine bottles, an overnight stay at a luxurious hotel suite, or look and feel beautiful with a treatment courtesy of the Philippines’ top beauty expert.
Soiree Beaujolais starts at 6:00 PM and ends at 2:00 AM. Wearing something with a hint of Marie Antoinette or Louis XVI is encouraged. Please mark your calendar and join us on this momentous night on 29 November 2016!
