Before we get to the regular news roundup, the NYCR team would like to extend its deepest condolences to the Pisacano family on the passing of Gasper “Gabby” Pisacano (pictured above). Anyone who has ever visited Roanoke Vineyards knew Gabby and loved him. He will be sorely missed by not only his family and the Roanoke Vineyards family, but also the Long Island wine community. Rest in peace, Gabby.
