Just as the Providence community supports us, the folks here at Bottles support local organizations and their events. Last weekend, Bottles was honored to support the French American School of Rhode Island at the 19th Annual Beaujolais Festival: An Evening at the Moulin Rouge.
The French American School of Rhode Island is a “unique educational alternative for Pre-school through 8th grade” where students are immersed in dual-language, French and American programs. FARSI is a fully accredited school by both the American and French government.
The Beaujolais Festival: An Evening at the Moulin Rouge was a great success! Held at the beautiful Biltmore Hotel, guests tasted through countless French Wines, bid at the Live and Silent Auctions, and enjoyed a fantastic performance by live Cancan girls, Kristen Minskey and The Tropigals.
Moulin Rouge inspired decorations, including these centerpieces,
helped to set the atmosphere for the evening.
The Biltmore Hotel was an elegant setting for this Belle Époque themed Festival.
Beaujolais Nouveau is made from the Gamay grape in the Beaujolais region of France. It becomes available on the third Thursday of November each year, since it is only fermented for a few weeks.
One of the Live Auction Items was a Wine Tasting & Appetizers, where Bottles and Russell Morin Fine Catering will put together a wine tasting for 20 people.
Guests also enjoyed a beautiful bangle bar courtesy of Alex and Ani.
Charles de Fere Blanc de Blancs was a wonderful sparkling wine enjoyed by all.
