Beaujolais Nouveau Day is a celebration of when the first vintages of wine produced in the Beaujolais region of France are released, typically just after midnight on the third Thursday of November, and wine lovers enter a cross-country race to get their hands on the fresh batch. Bojo Novo is a very big day in the wine world, so naturally that means lots of wine tasting parties, and these are the best ones in London.

Top Cuvée

Natural wine masters Top Cuvée will be celebrating Beaujolais Noveau in style at both the Finsbury Park restaurant and at Cave Cuvée in Bethnal Green. Top Cuvée will be serving up a three-course food and Gamay pairing and at Cave Cuvée you can get involved in a guided Beaujolais wine tour, and tickets for both events include a bottle of Top Cuvée’s very own Bojo Novo to take home too.
