My first walk on Rue la Fayette, I took a small detour and found Wine Therapy, owned by Laurent Delsaux. https://www.facebook.com/WineTherapyParis/
So, every third Thursday in November is beaujolais day? That’s one thing I learned while sipping beaujolais there. So that would have been last week, November 15th. I found a little bit of info, https://www.intowine.com/beaujolais2.html, here’s an excerpt:
“Beaujolais Nouveau began as a local phenomenon in the local bars, cafes, and bistros of Beaujolais and Lyons. Each fall the new Beaujolais would arrive with much fanfare. In pitchers filled from the growers barrels, wine was drunk by an eager population. It was wine made fast to drink while the better Beaujolais was taking a more leisurely course. Eventually, the government stepped into regulate the sale of all this quickly transported, free-flowing wine.”
Anyway; I recommend this little place, Wine Therapy, highly. Mssr Delsaux says he opened his doors only 4 weeks ago. He wants his customers to try local wine, and explore the different ones, not just beaujolais. I’m a wine neophyte; yet I feel like I might have made an acquaintance, even a new friend, and I am in awe of his knowledge and his desire to discuss, and to serve wonderful affordable wine to his customers. Perhaps if anyone from SF visits, you might mention my name. Very kind and patient (to a brand-new tourist, that’s an amazing thing, in Paris, I think!), and multi-lingual. Cheers.
