Join the Chemeketa Community College Wine Studies program for our fifth annual Beaujolais Nouveau release party at Chemeketa Cellars! Beaujolais Nouveau is a red wine made from Gamay in the Beaujolais region of France to celebrate the end of harvest. Nouveau is traditionally released on the third Thursday of November every year at festive release parties and is meant to be consumed immediately after bottling. At our Nouveau release party, you can sample Nouvea and Gamay Noir varieties being poured by Chemeketa Cellars and other local wineries (plus a bonus authentic French Nouveau!) in celebration of this famous French holiday. 

The ticket price of $25 ($20 for wine club members) includes tastings of Nouveau and Gamay Noir wines from local wineries and our student-made Nouveau along food pairings and live music by jazz trio UpFront Band. Wineries will be selling bottles to go and the Chemeketa Cellars tasting room have wine for sale by the glass and bottle. Mingle with Wine Studies students and local wineries, learn about the Nouveau tradition, and enjoy a relaxing evening of lively jazz, lovely Nouveau, and luscious light bites.
