Hall Cabernet Cookoff Returns For Sixth Year

Hall Cabernet Cookoff Returns For Sixth Year

Cabernet Cookoff will return for a sixth year on April 25 featuring an
all-star line-up of both Napa Valley and San Francisco-based chef teams.
Bringing together foodies and wine for a culinary pairing challenge, chef
teams will compete before a panel of all-star judges including Ken Frank,
Virginie Boone, Ian White and Lars Kronmark, for a local charity of their
choice by creating small bites paired with HALL 2012 Napa Valley Cabernet
Sauvignon. 100% of proceeds from ticket sales and 100% of donations made
online and from sponsors will go directly to charities. During the event,
guests will be invited to taste farm-to-table dishes from each chef team
paired with HALL wine and then vote on their favorite for the People’s
Choice Award.

“The Cabernet Cookoff is a fun way to experience great Napa Valley cuisine
and wonderful wines while helping our community,” says vintner, Kathryn Walt
Hall. “Everyone involved with this event including our generous sponsors,
talented chef teams, enthusiastic non-profit organizations and the entire
HALL and WALT staff all donate their time to create a spectacular day. Every
year, everyone at the Cabernet Cookoff comes out a winner.”

The 2014 HALL Cabernet Cookoff drew more than 600 food and wine lovers for a
sold out crowd and raised $66,000 for local charities. Last year’s winning
chef teams included One Market Restaurant and Paula Le Duc Catering who took
top honors for their selected charities, Napa Hospice & Adult Day Service
and St. Helena Hospital Foundation.

6th Annual HALL Cabernet Cookoff features popular culinary teams competing
in a food and wine pairing challenge with 100% of proceeds from ticket sales
benefitting local charities.

HALL produces critically acclaimed artisan Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon,
available to taste and buy at two tasting room and winery locations in Napa
Valley. Owned by Craig and Kathryn Walt Hall, its vineyard collection
features five Certified Organic estates producing classic Bordeaux
varietals. Each vintage, Director of Winemaking Steve Leveque crafts 16
distinct Cabernet Sauvignon wines which demonstrate the unique
characteristics and diversity of Napa Valley. HALL’s highly rated wines
include the Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon selected as Wine Spectator’s #18
of the 2010 ‘Top 100’, the 2008 “Kathryn Hall” Cabernet Sauvignon that
earned #2 of the “Top 100” Wines also in Wine Spectator, and its 2010
‘Exzellenz’ awarded 100 points by Robert Parker, Wine Advocate. Since the
first vintage in 2002, over 75 HALL wines have been rated 94 points and
above. HALL employs high-density plantings and small vine viticulture
combined with two cutting-edge, gravity-flow wineries to produce the highest
quality wines. In addition, the HALL St. Helena winery was the first LEEDR
Gold Certified Winery in the State of California in 2009 and earned another
LEEDR Gold certification for its high tech production facility and modern
tasting room in 2014, making HALL pioneers in the use of green buildings for
the wine industry. Each of HALL’s state-of-the-art winemaking facilities and
tasting rooms combine modern art and architecture matched with spectacular
settings. For more information, please visit www.hallwines.com, @hallwines,
