It was glitz and glamour last Friday as the French Embassy treated their employees and other local partners to an evening full of wine and music at Kabira Country, Bukoto. This event brought together almost all French companies in Uganda as they shared light moments in celebration of the annual Beaujolais Nouveau wine day.
The Beaujolais Nouveau is the first French wine of the year brewed from the Southern region of Bourgogne. It is tasted from the third week of November before being released on the market. Originally, Beaujolais Nouveau was a time for the wine growers to congratulate themselves on a work well done. In the same spirit, the French Embassy and the Francophone companies in Uganda decided to share this evening of celebration with their employees and local partners. To note was that it was a corporate, red carpet event. Invited guests included ambassadors, Members of parliament, op business men and other dignified members around the country.
The guests were entertained by Michael Ouma and his band and rapper Navio. There was plenty of wine and the guests drunk till they could not take anymore.
