Celebrate the UnCorking of Beaujolais Nouveau!


Friday, November 16, 2012


6pm - 11pm


Windows on Minnesota, Marquette Hotel


50th Floor IDS CENter


Following tradition, we'll uncork the Beaujolais Nouveau from George Duboeuf and keep it flowing all evening. As a new twist, we'll expand to a wide range of wines expertly selected by our partner, The Wine Company.     


Seven of the Twin Cities' top chefs will launch this year's Fête du Vin with a lavish array of appetizers. Our list of notable participating restaurants and bakeries include Vincent, a Restaurant, Meritage, Grand Cafe, Barbette, Heidi's, The Barbary Fig, Chez Arnaud, and Rustica Bakery. Most chefs will be present. Click here for more details.  


Along with imaginative food and wine pairings, we've curated a uniquely Gallic Silent Auction, including destination hotel packages, restaurant gift certificates, and private reserve French wines from connoisseur Richard Korinke. Click here for the complete listing.  


Dining at the Top of the IDS


Dinner will follow, as you sit down to a superb meal, accompanied by wine presented by The Wine Company, as well as a tempting dessert buffet by Chez Arnaud. 


Special Guests and Live Auction 


 We'll welcome the Invest in France Agency as a silver sponsor, and our special guest, Consul General Graham Paul, who will update us on the relations between the United States, France and Europe.


Next -- get ready for the Live Auction, including three pairs of Delta Airline tickets and exciting hotel packages.
