10th Annual HALL Cabernet Cookoff
This is Napa’s most exciting food and wine pairing challenge that benefits local non-profits. 13 notable Chef teams create a dish that they think pairs best with our HALL Cabernet. The event includes a VIP Preview and Main Event ticket options, a star-studded line-up of celebrity judges, and a silent auction. This event sells out each year so get your tickets before they are gone.

Prior to the Main Event from 12 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. we host a VIP Preview experience from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. This year, we are thrilled to welcome celebrity Chef Ari Taymor to headline a culinary demonstration alongside Vintner Kathryn Hall. Chef Ari will create a seasonal, farm-to-table dish live for the VIP guests in a cooking demo format that pairs magically with HALL & WALT wines. The 60 minute demonstration will be held in the HALL St. Helena “Mezzanine” space in the Tasting Room on Saturday, April 27. The event is waitlist only.
