French Beaujolais Nouveau in Kona, Hawaii

We have been looking for the 2010 French Beaujolais Nouveau in Kona, Hawaii to fulfill our Thanksgiving wish.  Nouveau wine is made from grapes picked this Autumn and is sought by those who want to get an early taste of the year’s wine before it has fully matured. This “almost wine” is bottled in France and shipped around the world on the third Thursday of November, just in time for Thanksgiving.

Unlike regular wine, Nouveau does not get better with age and spoils quickly if not consumed. Wine merchants worry if they carry it and it does not sell quickly it will spoil and they will be out the cost of the wine.

Fortunately for us, the wonderful people at the Kona Wine Market in the Kona Commons Shopping Center, were willing to order a case of Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau wine. They still have some bottles left for anyone looking for the Nouveau and others that want a taste of the future.

If you don’t want to buy a whole bottle, some of the top restaurants on the Kohala coast are serving it by the glass.
