The French Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Canton, in partnership with the General Consulate of France in Canton, celebrated the arrival of the Beaujolais Nouveau wine on Thursday November, 21st 2013 at the Sofitel Guangzhou Sunrich Hotel.


The new red wine, poured by MOQ, gathered more than 600 guests in a very convivial and gastronomic atmosphere.

Celebrated every third Thursday of November, this worldwide rendezvous represents a unique opportunity for both French and Chinese communities to get together around a bottle of fresh wine. The celebration of the Beaujolais Nouveau is not only the result of the real desire of wine-makers and traders to develop vineyards, but also the engagement of professional experts and hobbyists to the conviviality of the well-known wine. 


A wine blind test, in order to teach some sommelier tricks, was performed by a Chinese team, who won, against a French one, who did not miss an opportunity to taste white, red and ros wine, and a gulp of Armagnac and Cognac from Georges Duboeuf.


To go along with the wine, a very traditional French menu was made up of(among many others) pork rillettes, mashed potatoes, gratinated Parisian onion soup, Veal Blanquette along with some baguettes and Dijon mustard,


The Beaujolais Nouveau event was also the place for many companies willing to expand their activities. Gathered together on banquet tables, many enterprises, international firms and SMEs, had the opportunity to represent their industry and exchange efficiently. Forty corporate tables were reserved to enable invitees to spend the evening in a perfect atmosphere for business interactions and connections.

It was in a sharing and tasting ambiance that wine glasses were clinking at this key event in South China.
