Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau at Gallachers Wine Merchants & Bar
WINE GROWER’S SON, GEORGES DUBŒUF (1933 – 2020) ……. He settled in Romanèche-Thorins in 1964, and became a famous Beaujolais wine merchant. The history of Beaujolais Nouveau wines began with an official authorization given in 1951 by the Union Viticole du Beaujolais. At that time, however, the tradition of Beaujolais Nouveau did not extend beyond the borders of the region. It was then that Georges Duboeuf, in love with these greedy, pleasant and tasty wines, decided to make an event of it….. Beaujolais Nouveau Day. In the 1970s, Duboeuf spearheaded a campaign to promote the wine in his home country, capturing the French imagination with the slogan “Le Beaujolais Nouveau est arrivé!” By 1985, Beaujolais Nouveau had become so popular throughout Europe that the release date was moved to the third Thursday of November to bring it closer to the weekend.
