About the 2019 event:
The 18th Annual Beaujolais Nouveau festival was held on Friday, November 22, 2019, at 6pm at the Heathman Hotel in downtown Portland.
Culinary partner, Headwaters at the Heathman, under the leadership of Executive Chef Michael Campbell and James Beard award-winning chef Vitaly Paley, provided the gourmet buffet throughout the Heathman Hotel's mezzanine and ground level Library. Headwaters is one of a handful of Oregon restaurants that has earned Leadership designation in the James Beard Foundation’s Smart Catch program, which promotes sustainability of the worldwide seafood supply chain.
The event, one of the largest of its kind on the West Coast, featured tastings hosted by prestigious French-connected vintners and importers, including Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau 2019, WillaKenzie Estate, Pacific Rim, Ruby Vineyard, Anne Amie, Terroirs Originels, and Division Winemaking Company. Guests sampled spirits including Hardy Cognac and Balinoff Vodka (in a signature cocktail, the Perrier Greyhound).
The lavish buffet featured French and American brands in seafood, meats, breads, cheeses, desserts and more.
