Beaujolais Nouveau Day takes place on the third Thursday of November and celebrates the end of harvest and first wine of the season. The super gulpable “new” wines made from freshly-fermented Gamay are built for pure pleasure. For better or worse, the instant-gratification fruitiness of Beaujolais Nouveau has become a bit of a stereotype for all Gamay, and it has taken decades for the grape to shed this reputation and regain seriousness amongst the snobbiest of wine-drinkers.

But we’re not snobby. As such, we’ve decided to throw a tiki wine bash here at the bar. We know what you’re thinking… Camerata’s a wine bar with no (legal) access to rum and no extravagant tiki cups.  But much like Beaujolais Nouveau itself, the idea of Camerata embracing Tiki culture is delightfully kitschy. We’re ready for some Gamay-soaked frivolity.

Here’s a quick list of what we’ve got lined up…

  • Beaujolais Nouveau
  • The Gang of Four — all by the glass.
  • Porróns of Camerata’s Specialty Sangria
  • Angostura Ice Luge
  • Ridiculous Straws and copious Cocktail Umbrellas
  • Surprises

We’re also gonna have the party-boys from Scribe Winery come spin records and pour their own Pinot Noir Nouveau late night. All your favorite Camerata sommeliers will be decked out in our best Tommy Bahama garb. So bust out your Hawaiian shirt and grass skirt and come drink some Beaujolais Nouveau with us!
