Art is something very important to us. Whether it is a monetary contribution to support local arts organizations, sharing works from their extensive collection with the public, or speaking publicly about the importance of art and culture, the Halls support and encourages long-term investment in the arts.
We believe that art nurtures and enriches quality of life and should be made easily accessible to everyone. This belief contributed to the vision at HALL St. Helena and HALL Rutherford, which were designed to showcase a unique collection of modern art. For example, visitors arriving at HALL St. Helena are greeted by a 35-foot chrome rabbit named Bunny Foo Foo who appears to be leaping out of the vineyard. We value artistic style and expression, and weave it within everything that we do.
Additionally, HALL is actively involved in a number of art initiatives throughout the year, including:
- San Francisco Opera
For the second year in a row, HALL is the Official Wine Sponsor of the San Francisco Opera and has donated its award-winning wines for events throughout the season including Opera Ball 2017, the benefit gala which opened the Company’s 95th Season on September 8. Wines for San Francisco Opera’s 2017–18 Season include HALL’s 2013 ‘Coeur’ Cabernet Sauvignon and HALL’s 2016 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc.
- Festival Napa Valley
Every year HALL is actively involved in Festival Napa Valley, an annual ten-day music, food, wine, and art festival held at various locations throughout the Valley. In 2017, HALL St. Helena served as the host site for the Gala that featured the cast of Hamilton.
- Additionally, HALL supports local organizations including Nimbus Arts, Napa Valley Performing Arts Center at Lincoln Theater, and the Napa Regional Dance Foundation.
