Gary Cogill and Hayley Hamilton Cogill (Cogill Wine & Film. A perfect pairing)
Please meet my pals Gary Cogill who’s a respected Dallas film reviewer/interviewer and

They can both be found at Lahaina Galleries in the shops at Mauna Lani on the Big Island.

My suggestion was: Let’s choose your Oscar Winners and pair them with the perfect wines.
Gary and I exchange opinions on:
the acting categories
and best director.
Hayley pairs with wines from
Adelsheim in the Willamette Valley,
Dana Estates/Vaso Cellars in Napa,
ZD Wines in Napa.
Gary helps with your Oscar pool and Hayley suggests wines to seek and serve.

Jane Ferrari – Independent Consultant & Voice of Yalumba
(Barossa Valley Australia)
I find it almost impossible to try and explain what has happened to the people of Australia, the wildlife, the wineries and the land itself.
Wildfires have destroyed many regions, towns and lives and it’s not done yet.
One of my favourite humans is Jane Ferrari – who was for years the voice of Yalumba Wines. She was/is a natural storyteller and that’s what she did all over the World. Jane would tell all of us stories about Yalumba, Barossa and Australia.
Who better to call and talk to?
My most important question to Jane was – How can we Help?
Jane more than fills two segments of the show but she followed up by sending three links that take you directly to those on the front lines.
Hi Terry – this is the Instagram site that shows specific food and wine bushfire affected folk across the country
Hi Terry – this is the excellent summary of the bushfire affected areas nationally, put together by young consultant Trish Barry
Hi Terry – this is Max Allen – excellent Oz wine journo – on what we can do long term to support the fire affected areas
There you go folks…support is only a click away.
Please pass the Tasting Room links above to those who could support and help.
and Thank You,
