Gary Brochtrup

Gary Brochtrup was born in South­ern Cal­i­for­nia. He moved to Mor­ro Bay with his wife right after get­ting mar­ried in 1991. In their spare time, they start­ed explor­ing the hand­ful of Paso winer­ies. They kept return­ing to Cas­toro for the deli­cious wine and the friend­ly and wel­com­ing ser­vice. Short­ly, they became wine club members.

A cou­ple of decades lat­er, Gary retired from the Postal ser­vice after 36 years. With each vis­it to Cas­toro, Gary noticed that the employ­ees seemed to be hav­ing a good time, and he thought it would be a fun place to work! This has turned out to be true!

In his free time, Gary enjoys hik­ing, walk­ing on the beach, explor­ing oth­er winer­ies, and root­ing for the Braves!

Janet Carnegie

Mor­ro Bay is Janet’s home port! Spend­ing her youth explor­ing the many local trails on horse­back, total­ly inspired her adult life. Still able to find those old trails of long ago, although now on foot. She’s in con­stant awe of where she grew-up! After rais­ing five free spir­it­ed chil­dren on the cen­tral coast, Janet took a minute to pour her­self a glass of wine. There’s always a great sto­ry in a glass of wine! She has been pour­ing Dam Fine Wine” for 15 years… now that’s hard to believe! It has tru­ly been great to share the sto­ry of Cas­toro Cel­lars and tell of Neils and Bimmer’s Udsen’s com­mu­ni­ty and fam­i­ly val­ues.
On her days off you might spot her out kayak­ing on the bay, walk­ing miles on the beach or danc­ing always bare­foot at one of our many com­mu­ni­ty concerts.
