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 shared a delicious recipe for brie stuffed sandia chiles. 

Gift giving and selecting the most appropriate gift can be a bit overwhelming.  Most of us are so fortunate – we buy things we want for ourselves, so when it comes time to show our appreciation for friends, associates and family, it might be a challenge to find not only something thoughtful, but useful.  Wine or beer, spirits these days can be the perfect gift.  It comes in a variety of prices and will be something people can use and share with others. Think of a bottle that has the most meaning to the recipient.
