Granted, the launch of 2011's Beaujolais Nouveau is guaranteed to hog the media spotlight this month, but in-the-known oenophiles would do better to wait an extra ten days and head to Festivin instead. Tapping into the current interest in natural wines, this tasting event showcases over 200 varieties of chemical-free plonk from France, Italy, Japan and a variety of other European countries. The ticket price covers all the wine you can drink and includes a tasting glass and holder, and there'll be food available for purchase, plus live music from Malian multi-instrumentalist Mamadou Doumbia, Bolivian guitarist Luis Carlos Severich and others.
