Peter Krauter

Apprentice Winemaker
Spellbound Wines

Wine has been part of Peter Krauter’s life for three generations. His grandfather and father grew wine grapes from 1960 through the 1980’s in California’s central valley. “Growing up working on the family farm gave me a strong work ethic and a desire to be outside from a young age.” However, it wasn’t until 2007 that Peter Krauter officially started his winemaking career. While studying winemaking at UC Davis, CA Peter had the pleasure of working with amazing small family-run wineries in Northern California.

Since joining Folio Fine Wine Partners in 2016 Peter has been making wines with Master Winemaker Tony Coltrin on many Folio brands like Oberon, Hangtime, and Spellbound. “Spellbound wines brings me back to my roots of making exceptional wines from grapes grown throughout California.”

Peter, his wife Megan, daughter Jovie and their dog “Spud” live just over the hill from Napa in Davis, CA. Being born and raised in California allows Peter to enjoy many outdoor hobbies like camping, hiking, golfing, hunting, bouldering and snowboarding. When he’s not outside he prefers to be cooking and listening to vinyl records with his beautiful wife and family.
