Nouveau Fest is a celebration of the first wine of the new vintage. 2018 will mark the 28th annual event to commemorate this special occasion. Admission to this event is FREE and glasses of Nouveau will be offered at a discounted rate.
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.
Twenty-eight years ago we decided to start celebrating the release of the first wine of the 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.
Celebrate and help a great cause! Fenn Valley is once again partnering with Ladders of Hope, our local food pantry, to aid in replenishing their shelves during this time of need. Help us out by bringing non-perishable food donations. Each donation will entitle you to a free wine tasting. In addition, Fenn Valley will be donating all proceeds from wine tastings for the entire weekend to Ladders of Hope.
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 2018 vintage on one of our cellar tours which will run all afternoon. We will also feature live holiday music making Nouveau Festival a great way to kick-off your holiday celebrations!
