Birka was also important as the site of the first known Christian congregation in Sweden, founded in 831 by Saint Ansgar. No texts survive from this area, though the written text Vita Ansgari ("The life of Ansgar") by Rimbert (c.

865) describes the missionary work of Ansgar around 830 at Birka, and Gesta Hammaburgensis Ecclesiae Pontificum (Deeds of Bishops of the Hamburg Church) by Adam of Bremen in 1075 describes the archbishop Unni, who died at Birka in 936.

The "first wine of the harvest," Beaujolais Nouveau is anticipated by wine lovers around the world who look forward to celebrating the arrival of this festive wine every year on the third Thursday of November, per French law and tradition.

Beaujolais Nouveau has deep roots in French wine history dating back to the 1800s when Beaujolais grape growers and winemakers would hold a "fête" to celebrate the harvest, toasting their bounty with some of the "young wine" just made.
