In honor of Basque Country’s annual cider celebration, Camerata is bringing the party and education to Houston through ¡TXOTX! Basque Weekend. As tradition has it, all cider houses turn fermentation rooms into dining spaces to enjoy food complemented by freshly fermented cider straight out of the casks.

Just as they have done in Spain for centuries, Camerata will herald in the occasion over a four-day weekend.  

  • January 19: Participate solo or with a guest in a Porrón pouring competition where contestants will be scored based on the challenge and creativity of their pour as well as their execution. Attendees can apply solo or as a two-person team. Participants will also receive a 50% discount on Isastegi at Camerata prior to the competition as practice.
  • January 21: Attend an educational seminar on Basque beverages led by Camerata’s General Manager, Chris Poldoian where guests will learn about the unique traditions and viticultural characteristics of the Basque region as they taste through over ten different sidra and wines.
  • All weekend long: The festivities will carry on through the weekend and expand to other local Houston bars, Public Services and 13º Celsius. All three bars will be serving sidra, txakoli and wines from Rioja Alavesa. Camerata will be supplementing their menu with traditional pintxos and offer curated flights of sidra and wine.
