Peter got his start in winemaking in 2001 at Stolpman Vineyards and was the Assistant Winemaker there until 2006. He is also one of the founding members of Piedrasassi and Holus Bolus wines. During this time he gained experience working with Syrah, Grenache, Sangiovese, Pinot Noir, Cabernet and Roussanne. After meeting Amy spitting wine over the winery drains in Lompoc in 2004, they founded Black Sheep Finds with the arrival of the 2005 vintage. Peter is in charge of winemaking for Black Sheep Finds and Holus Bolus, as well as managing and directly selling the wines in Central and Southern California. A Chicago native and rabid Blackhawks fan, he has lived in California since 1992 when he attended the Claremont Colleges studying Fine Art and Environmental Studies. 2015 will mark his 15th vintage making wine in Santa Barbara County.
