Beaujolais Nouveau is a wine party tradition in France celebrated all over the world held every year on the 3rd Thursday of November. Over 65 million bottles, nearly half of the region’s total annual production, distributed and drunk around the world. It has become a worldwide race to be the first to serve to this new wine of the harvest.
The Indonesian-French Chamber of Commerce & Industry (IFCCI), with support from the French Embassy, organized the Beaujolais Nouveau in Jakarta at the Grand Ballroom, Intercontinental Jakarta Midplaza on Friday, 18 November 2016.
In a grand atmosphere, IFCCI gathered dear friends, members and distinguished guests to cherish this year’s Beaujolais Nouveau and celebrate French culture and tradition. The event commenced with speeches by IFCCI’s Chairman, Mr. Philippe Augier, and French Ambassador to Indonesia, H.E. Mr. Jean-Charles Berthonnet, who welcomed everyone and made the first toast along with ambassadors and representatives of EU countries.
Lucky draw from sponsors highlighted the evening while taking the time to thank all guests and sponsors for coming out that night and the Embassy of France for its continuous support. Congratulations to all the lucky winners who won round-trip tickets to Paris, provided by Air France.
Our sincerest thank you to our main sponsors, Bolloré Logistics and Air France, who supported IFCCI in shipping the Beaujolais Nouveau wine directly from France to Indonesia. The event was also sponsored by Total E&P Indonesie, Danone Aqua, Tauzia, and all the lucky draw sponsors. Without the support of these wonderful sponsors, the event would not have been such a huge success. The utmost gratitude is sent to all of the sponsors.
See you all again at Beaujolais Nouveau next year!
