Noshing Lite: $3 Paella and Beaujolais Nouveau

Posted By on Tue, Nov 18, 2008 at 3:08 PM

Here a two items of note that were not included in this week's Noshing Around column.

On Nov. 20, Zivaz celebrates its 3rd anniversary with a $3 paella plate when your purchase a drink and eat in. This offer is good for the first 200 people. Doors open at 5 p.m.

Also on November 20 (12:01 a.m. to be exact), the greatest wine-marketing circus starts exploding on the Internet with hundreds of press releases touting this year's Beaujolais Nouveau from France. The wine is the first press from gamay grapes in the Beaujolais region and is meant to be drunk now or by the end of the year. Beaujolais Nouveau is also the perfect pairing with turkey or so the marketing madness will have you believe.

I have a love/hate affair with the wine. I love it when it's good (serve lightly chilled) and hate it when it tastes like mouthwash. Every year is slightly different.

RumRunner informed me that this year they have a Boisset Family Estates Bouchard and Mommessin Beaujolais Nouveau in lightweight PET bottles. The 100-percent recyclable bottles reduce shipping weight by 42 percent, and cut freight costs by one-third. PET bottles have a smaller carbon footprint than glass bottles, and are calculated to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 40 percent.

When buying wine this holiday season, please consider investing your dollars in local wine shops like RumRunner, Catavinos Wines, Plaza Liquor and 58 Degrees.
