Nouveau Fête 2023
Division Wine Making Company has an annual tradition of releasing their "Nouveau Nouveau" wine, a "fresh, fruity, and quaffable" Gamay, on Beaujolais Nouveau Day each year. They emphasize that the soirée is all about "enjoyment of the moment," so indulge your inner hedonist by savoring cheese plate trios from La Femme Fromage and oysters from Pop Oysters PDX while sampling wines from Division, GC, The Marigny/St. Reginald Parish, Love & Squalor, and New Wave Wine Co.
Division Wines, 5:30-8 pm
The Grape Escape feat. Beaujolais Nouveau
The Hoxton is hosting the inaugural edition of this new event celebrating "Bojo Novo Day," as they affectionately dub it. While some wine events can be stuffy, this one promises to be lively and fun, featuring vinyl tunes from DJ Sworth, a menu of snacky bites, and Portland Wine Collective’s curated selection of Beaujolais and Beaujolais-inspired wines. Plus, exclusive "Grape Escape" merch will be available for purchase.
The Hoxton, 8-10 pm
