French wine, food festival kicks off
Update: Nov 17, 2015
The Beaujolais Nouveau celebration featuring French wine and food will take place on November 19 in Ha Noi.

This typically French tradition, taking place every year, marks the end of the annual grape harvest and the release of the popular "Beaujolais" red wine.

The event, held for the first time in Viet Nam, seeks to share French culture and strengthen the friendship between Viet Nam and France.

Visitors will have the opportunity to taste the exclusive Beaujolais Nouveau 2015 wine imported directly from France and enjoy a culinary experience through carefully tasting French specialties.

Two bands, Puzzle and Domino, will perform at the event which will be held at Pullman Hotel Ha Noi.

Tickets, including two glasses of wine and three food items, can be purchased beforehand at VND450,000 (US$20) or at the door for VND600,000 (US$27).
