Wine fans, take note: every third Thursday of November, a humble, lightly fermented wine made from Gamay grapes cultivated in the Beaujolais region of France is ushered in joyfully in celebrations across the country-- and Paris is no exception. Wine bars around the city will be ushering in the 2013 harvest of Beaujolais Nouveau wines with tastings and, in some cases, all-out celebrations-- and many will continue the festivities throughout the month.

To get inspired and find out where to head for tastings of "BN" this year, check out our visual guide to Beaujolais Nouveau tastings in Paris. About.com Paris Travel Contributor Jacob Kleinman was on the scene to celebrate the arrival of the new vintage in several bars and "caves" (cellars) around the city, and this year many of the same spots are hosting tastings. Oh, and remember to fill up on plenty of bread, cheese and other goodies while you taste: Beaujolais Nouveau may be a light wine, but it can get to your head more quickly than you think!
