HALL Cabernet Cookoff 2018

April 28th, 2018 | HALL St. Helena

On Saturday, April 28th, over 850 wine and food enthusiasts came together on the great lawn at HALL Wines in St. Helena at the 9th Annual Cabernet Cookoff. 14 Bay Area Chef's teamed up with local non-profits of their choice to create the best dish to pair with HALL’s 2013 Coeur Cabernet Sauvignon. The event was hosted by Vintner's Craig and Kathryn Hall and included emcee Natalie Morales, West Coast Anchor of Today / Access. We have raised over $90,000 for local Bay Area charities.
