Each episode aims to inspire creative conversations while sipping on a newly released HALL, WALT or BACA wine.
The Happy Hour series is hosted by three hosts, one for each wine brand including HALL, WALT and BACA Wines. The Happy Hour Host includes creater Kathryn Walt Hall, WALT Wines General Manager Jeff Zappelli and BACA Wines Vintner Jennifer Brown.
“During the start of the pandemic in the Spring of 2020, we looked at different creative ways to keep our audiences engaged and keep wine conversations top of mind,” says Vintner Jennifer Brown. “Launching Season one of the series and really honing in on the lifestyle of wine with each of our guests allowed us to connect in new and compelling ways –our Club Members and fans sipped along with our show hosts and the guest, and it truly felt like we are all enjoying a casual Happy Hour experience together. The 2022 Season will continue to focus on producing dynamic and engaging shows that let our audience into our guests’ lives, ask questions in real-time, and hear about new projects that each are working on.”
The 2022 Happy Hour series airs on Wednesdays each week through February 23, and in March the series shifts to a monthly series. For more information on the HALL, WALT or BACA Happy Hour series, please visit https://www.hallwines.com/happy-hours.
