HALL Cabernet Cookoff

The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and the wine is flowing! 
This is a gorgeous time of year and we can't wait for all of the fabulous events that Wine Country & The Bay Area has to offer. 
One of our favorite events {and partnerships} is hosted by HALL Wines.
This is the 7th Annual #CabernetCookoff at HALL in St. Helena.
The event features local chef teams competing head-to-head for their partner charities. Each team creates a dish, sweet or savory {you know what we will be doing} including or pairing perfectly with Hall Cabernets.  
With an amazing line up of chef teams and judges... how could you miss this?
We had so much fun at last years event that we are back for more this year! 
Here's a look at last years #CabernetCookoff

Sift's Wild Night on the Serengeti!

Sift Dessert Bar is more than just cupcakes, frosting, and sprinkles. Most of our customers know this, and have indulged in our various delectable treats, including French Macarons, Ice Cream Sammies, Cakes, Mini Pies, and more! Unfortunately, much of the public still thinks of us as "just cupcakes." Our goal was to break down this barrier by throwing our own industry event and getting in front of the top Wedding + Event Professionals in Wine Country.
 We were lucky enough to partner with some of the best vendors to make this event possible. Thank you so much to our incredible sponsors, Safari West, Hall Wines, Encore Events Rentals, Schramsberg, Lagunitas, DreamMaker Designs, Rustic Love: Home Decor & Event Rental, Bella Vita Event Productions & Favor Custom Gifts! We couldn't have done it without your help and contributions! 
The evening was broken down into 3 parts. First, the meet + greet. All guests were welcomed by staff at Safari West's Welcome Hut and sent over to "Flamingo Landing" with views of Giraffes and Pink Flamingos complete with Shcramsberg Sparkling, Hall Wines, and delicious cheese + charcuterie plates. The second part of the evening was our formal tasting including pairings of Hall Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc paired with a Limonatta Cake Shot, Hall 2012 Eighteen Seventy-Three Cabernet Sauvignon paired with our Salted Caramel French Macaron, Schramsberg 2011 Crémant Demi Sec paired with a mini salted caramel apple pie, and Lagunitas Hairy Eyeball Ale paired with our mini Stud Muffin
Our final portion of the evening was a crowd favorite, the incredible styled dessert bars. We offered 3 dessert bars styled by our amazing Wedding + Events Team, Stephanie Crocker + Leyla Hobbs! We showcased a Rustic Pie Bar, Vintage Dessert Bar, and Modern Cake Bar. 
Thank you Rustic Love: Home Decor & Event Rentals for the incredible display pieces & Bella Vita Event Productions for the florals!
