It’s that time again Le Beaujolais est Arrivé!

Beaujolais Nouveau Day is always the third Thursday on November, the date this year is 17 November 2022. Glasses are raised across the world to mark the first and fastest wine of the 2022 harvest.

If you purchase 6 bottles or more, we are holding the price at the 2020 price which is just £12 per bottle.

This year we have partnered with Cecile and Alain Dardenelli from Domaine Bel Avenir in La Chapelle de Guinchay, 3km east of Chenas.

The grapes are harvested from vines planted on an array of different terroirs: siliceous clay (St Amour), granite (Chenas) and limestone. The couple own vineyards in the Beaujolais-Villages plain as well as in the Crus of Juliénas, Chénas, St Amour and Fleurie.

Tasting the grapes on vine just before harvest suggested a good balance, but let’s face it, Nouveau is all about quaffing, celebration of the harvest and fun!

For all customers buying Nouveau this year there will be an online tasting at 6.30pm on 17 November 2022. Join Pip and Dan to share this first taste of the 2022 vintage.

More Information


Gamay is a thin, delicate purple-black skinned grape which is cylindrical and compact, surrounded by flat, fairly even-edged leaves.

Although granite soils seem to be its soil of choice, the variety is good at adapting. Half of the 30,000 hectares of Gamay planted worldwide are in the Beaujolais region of France, where it covers 98% of the areas that produce Beaujolais wine.

Beaujolais, France

The hilly Beaujolais vineyards stretch out from north to south over 55km, bordered to the west by the Massif Central, and to the east by the Saone river.

Beaujolais vineyards are emblematic in the French national landscape, but are still teeming with secrets to be unearthed. The region has a constent sense of welcome and sharing. Sculpted over centuries it is personified by its 12 AOCs.

Cécile Dardenelli, Domaine Bel Avenir

Cécile and her husband Alain are fourth generation winemakers. The estate was created by Albert Dardanelli in 1961. It has since expanded to 18 hectares with vineyards in the Beaujolais Crus of Morgon, St Armour, Moulin-à-Vent, Régnié, Juliénas and Fleurie. Their daughter Laura is already working on the estate and she will become the fifth generation to run the domaine.
