HALL Wines Cancels 2020 Cabernet Cookoff

At the direction of California Governor Gavin Newsom and our local health authorities, we must sadly confirm the cancellation of this year’s HALL Cabernet Cookoff due to COVID-19 concerns.

While this decision comes at a time of universal uncertainty, we take the safety and health of our guests, staff and community very seriously. We urge everyone to follow the guidelines and protocols put forth by public health officials.

All purchases for this event will be fully refundable through the end of May 31st. Purchasers will be notified on how to obtain a refund. However, if you would like to donate your ticket purchases, all ticket proceeds remaining after May 31st will go directly to all participating non-profits. Corporate sponsors, wineries, chef teams and non-profit organizations will be contacted directly.  

Thank you for your continued support of the HALL Cabernet Cookoff. We hope to see you in the Napa Valley in the very near future and will keep everyone posted with details on the 2021 event.

Save The Date: Cabernet Cookoff 2021 will be held on April 24, 2021
