Joy Wine and Spirits

Just after the annual release of Beaujolais Nouveau last night at Joy Wine and Spirits, Carolyn Joy visited First Take with Lando and Chavis with some Thanksgiving food and wine pairings.

The third Thursday in November is Beaujolais Nouveau Day.  "It's diminished in popularity a bit in the U.S.," said Joy, as she happily uncorked one of their offerings, from Georges DuBoeuf (pictured).  "It's  very young, very fresh, and a lot of people like to serve it at Thanksgiving."

Congratulations to Joy Wine and Spirits’ 2014 Chili Cook-Off winner, Café Brazil.  In honor of this win and the Hatch Green Chile season, Tony from Café Brazil is sharing a delicious recipe for brie stuffed sandia chiles on KUVO's Into the Night program on Oct. 23.
