Must Find Decent Wine Shop

Today, on a whim, I walk into one of two local booze shops we have here in town. Here is the conversation:

Clerk: Can I help you find something?
Me: Yeah, I'm looking for a Beaujolais.

PAUSE

Clerk: Uh.
Me: It's a red.
Clerk: How do you spell that?

PAUSE

Me: B-E-A-U-J-O-L-A-I-S
Clerk (Looking at a random label): No, I don't think we have that.

I didn't find at the grocery store, either. My next places will be the other liquor store and Walmart (cue doom music).

Anyway, yeah. I haven't gotten anywhere near through my Riesling phase, but I'm thinking Beaujolais might be a fun foray into red wines, not to mention a change of pace.

Anyone here have experience with the stuff?
