The Brengman Brothers Experience: Where Hospitality Meets Fine Wine
This summer brought a good harvest of mentions in major news publications. The Chicago Tribune and New York Times visited the Traverse City Area and praised our wines!
Robert has picked all gold-medal winning wines for the Spring Wine Club Members six-bottle commitment. Of course, club members are free to customize their selections but his picks are pretty good.
BB sent some of our white wines into the Eighth Annual Palate Press Grand Tasting and guess who was the surprise of the night?
We entered seven wines and received 2 Golds, 3 Silvers and 2 Bonzes in the San Francisco Chronicle International Wine Competition, the largest in the world!
It was a good call to leave 20 plus rows of Riesling grapes to make Ice Wine as we experienced an early start of the cold weather finishing the harvest of the frozen grapes on Dec 12.
Smooth transitions are important in all phases of viticulture, especially when it comes to the winemakers
The most vivid memory in this industry is recalling the seasons. Every season is remembered from bad, average, great to historic, as they all get a place in the long-term mental data bank.
Every vintage has three seasons -- start, middle and finish. Our 2017 had a mediocre start and middle, but what a fabulous finish it brought us.
2016 as a vintage is the best to date! All essential elements came together to create historic Cuvées. Ideal weather leveraged our perfect dirt and microclimate to produce exceptional grapes.
Michigan Fortified! We used our own and other Michigan grapes to expand 2015 into a new venture for our state: Piccolo Dito!
