Bocce, Pizza, Wine …

Bob and Sandy Comstock have been selling grapes for over a decade. But they always wanted their own tasting room. So in August 2015, they opened a nice, expansive facility and tasting room, debuting their own wine label at the same time.  Complete with an outdoor pizza oven and bocce ball court, visitors can book blending seminars and sessions with winemaker Chris Russi.  The Insider caught up with Russilike many winemakers, was happy to do the Insider Quiz.  For future enjoyable events check out their website.
