When it comes to education, Camerata is serious. The Montrose wine bar situated next to Paulie’s restaurant just turned a year old and is closing for two days for staff to attend a statewide wine conference in Dallas known as TEXSOM. The dates of closure are Sunday, August 10 and Monday, August 11. The crew will be back in full force Tuesday, August 12, at regular hours.

Camerata’s David Keck, along with his staff of six, will be volunteering at the event as well as taking exams for special wine certifications and competing against others testing their wine knowledge and expertise. Best of luck to Camerata employees Brett Forsberg, Hayley Wallace and Kelly McCloud, who will be attempting their level I sommelier certifications at the event, the first in a series of certifications for wine professionals.
