Our grandparents, Peter and Augusta ‘Gusi’ Brengman, were Detroit area hospitality celebrities. Pete operated the famous Continental Bowl for three decades. Grandma Gusi served as queen of our large Catholic immediate family. Her daily routine would begin each day with mass and then off for an 8-hour shift to lead the kitchen crew at our family’s ‘Captain’ restaurants.
Our love for hospitality and sharing the finer things can surely be traced through our DNA. We were firmly taught that hospitality is both a human virtue and a vocation demanding that people be simultaneously skilled, compelling, and fascinating individuals.
Our staff are people who care about fine wine, the history and practices of which are all important for Brengman Bros. vineyard and cellar.
