Nouveau Fest is a celebration of the first wine of the new vintage. 2014 will mark the 23rd annual event to commemorate this special occasion.
The Fenn Valley Nouveau is a dry red wine from the current vintage. Expect a fruity wine, full of berry flavors with a smooth finish. It is a perfect addition to any holiday party table or as a wine to sip in front of the fireplace during those cold winter months.
The wine also ages very well and we set a few bottles aside so we can gather with family and friends to open several past vintages and do a vertical tasting.
Twenty years ago we decided to start celebrating the release of the first one of our vintage in the same tradition as the French with their Beaujolais Nouveau. We have had a lot of fun sharing Nouveau with you every year and we hope you will join us again this year.
Several varieties of homemade pizza will be offered at the event, allowing you to experiment with pairing your favorite wines with different pizza samples. This is also an opportunity for you to taste wines from the 2014 vintage on one of our cellar tours which will run all afternoon. This is a great way to kick-off your holiday celebrations!
