The 2021 Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau Uncorks the Third Thursday in November!
Thursday, November 18th, 2021
The First Wine of the Harvest !

For over three decades, the FACC Philadelphia, most of our 18 FACC sister chapters nationwide, and many French Chambers of Commerce & Industry around the world have hosted fundraisers to celebrate binational business development with France and the end of the grape harvest on or shortly after "the third Thursday in November", which is The Official Beaujolais Nouveau Release Date!

The 2021 Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau goes on sale Thursday, November 18th, which coincides with the 31st Annual SAVOR Soirée. We encourage you to enjoy this French Philadelphia cultural tradition with your friends and family and look forward to receiving your personal review of it at info@FACCphila.org or during our SAVOR Soirée!

Merci Beaucoup!

Proceeds from SAVOR help sustain the FACC's Mission to promote trade with France, foster cross-border business development, and strengthen the economic vitality and diverse ecosystem of our region. The FACC educates, assists and mentors French companies ready to launch in the US, and guides US companies interested in doing business with France. Additionally, we provide a warm and welcoming forum for the mutual interests of local French, American and international business professionals, who seek new business connections and opportunities through frequent networking and the cultivation of a broader base of trusted contacts, experts, clients, and friends. 

About the FACC Philadelphia  

 

Founded and incorporated in Pennsylvania in 1989 by locally-based French and globally-minded American business leaders, the Philadelphia Chapter of the French-American Chamber of Commerce is a 325-member-strong, nonprofit business association that is supported in full by the members we serve in Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Southern New Jersey.  Now in our 32nd year of community service, the FACC Philadelphia's programs and events are conducted in English to attract the broadest audience possible. Speaking French is not required to participate in our activities or join our Chapter. Whatever your native language, we will do our best to make you feel comfortable and warmly welcomed when you join the FACC or register for our events and programs. Additionally, all of our locally-based French Members are bilingual or multilingual, as are many of our American and international Members.

The 18 FACC Chapters nationwide act as the US branch of the CCI France International. This umbrella organization unites 126 French Chambers of Commerce & Industry (CCI) in 95 countries and is our connection to the CCIs within France.
