The HALL Cabernet Cookoff will return on Saturday, April 22, 2023!

Known as Napa’s most competitive and exciting food and wine pairing competition, the Cabernet Cookoff invites chef teams from all over the Country to create a dish that pairs with a HALL Cabernet Sauvignon to benefit a charity of their choice. Each year, a panel of celebrity judges as well as hundreds of food and wine lovers help to vote for the best pairing with four winners being announced. 100% of event proceeds benefit non-profit 501c3 organizations that the winning chef teams select to compete for. With two ticket options offered, VIP Ticket & Main Event Ticket, guests are invited to indulge, imbibe and enjoy a diverse menu of culinary delights with many surprises in store.

Are you interested in participating as a chef team, non-profit organization or as an event sponsor? Email media@hallwines.com for more information.
