Adam Brengle, Assistant Manager
Adam joined the Total Wine & More team four years ago when we opened our first Tucson store. Since joining the company, he has developed a passion for wine, has had the privilege of visiting Napa Valley, Sonoma Valley, Rioja, Bordeaux, the Rhône Valley, Burgundy and Champagne on the Total Wine & More wine-education trips. Adam is currently on his way to becoming a Total Wine Professional. Adam generally prefers dry reds, with a specific interest in Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Barolo, but also enjoys the occasional glass of Champagne. Adam’s favorite thing about working at Total Wine & More is being in an environment where he can continue to develop his knowledge and passion of wine and, more specifically, sharing his knowledge with customers, giving him the opportunity to turn them on to something new.
