John Haskell’s great love of great wine has spilled over into his own winery: Boscoe Wine Co. John’s son, David, a highly experienced sommelier and restaurateur is helping run the show as president and financial backer. So far the wines from the 2015 vintage, Grenache Blanc and Syrah, have been well accepted by many top restaurants. Both 2015 Lizette, Grenache Blanc and 2015 La Fai Syrah are available through the website. They are very excited about this new venture.
