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!
