Working for a small, family owned and operated winery and vineyard for 14 years gave him experience in almost every facet of the wine business.

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!
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.
