Halls Kicks Off Wine + Food With Pelligrini Wine Luncheon

Halls_luncheon The Hall family and Halls Chophouse were hosts to one of the premiere beginning events for the BB&T Charleston Wine + Food Festival® with a Wine Maker Luncheon paired with Sonoma County’s Pellegrini Vineyards.

The sold-out event featured a four-course meal prepared by Executive Chef Matthew Niessner that began with a scallop and lobster mousse sandwich paired with a nicely light Olivet Lane 2008 Chardonnay from the Russian River Valley. Next was a sumptuous cream of asparagus and crab soup paired with Pellegrini’s 2009 Pinot Noir.

Halls_dinner The main course was Hall’s Carved Beef Tenderloin, excellently prepared shrimp, whipped potatoes and broccolini florets paired with a very interesting 2007 Merlot.

Halls_dessert The finale was a 14-layer caramel cake with a warm banana foster paired with an equally flavorful Russian River Valley Zinfandel.

The annual BB&T Charleston Wine + Food Festival®, March 3-6, 2011, has been praised as one of the top five food and wine festivals in the U.S. by Forbes Traveler. The four-day event infuses home-grown flavor with the most celebrated chefs, culinary professionals and winemakers in the world.
