February 20, 2021
The goal of this TV Show / Podcast is to appeal to a broad audience including millennials, Gen X, Y and Z as well as Baby Boomers that enjoy wine but may not want to be or need to be a connoisseur.

It is a multifaceted look at the world’s finest beverage and its niche in a diverse and changing world. Sharing sometimes provocative views and always insightful conversation, we want to inspire listeners to not only enjoy wine but to expand their connections and world view through it.

Episode #10 – Featuring Wine & Art with Local Hawaiian Artist Danielle Groff
Danielle Groff comes from generations of artists with her grandfather being a significant source of her inspiration. Groff describes her beginnings as an artist as a “mindless hobby” which expanded throughout her home community on the North Shore and later the world! Her paintings embody the sense of happiness and aloha found in her North Shore community which makes them appeal internationally.
Her whimsical artwork usually features marine life, seascapes, other Hawaiian landscapes, or significant sites such as Anahulu Bridge. Featuring an array of complementary colours that aren’t usually found in nature, Groff’s work is unique and soothing to view. Her work has been featured in the Maui art gallery, in the Outrigger as a solo exhibit, and more.
Groff has been offering painting classes to teach her “Groff Art” style to others after finding a passion for teaching art. These regular classes are on the last Saturday of the month at the Ka Makana Ali’i location of Pictures Plus.
