Sonoma, Calif.—Winemaker Peter Kruse passed away on Sept. 20 at the age 44 from lung cancer. Kruse grew up working at his family's winery in Gilroy and in the 1990s, he brewed beer for Gordon Biersch Brewery. Kruse returned to winemaking, working first for Story Winery in Amador County and then for Roche Winery in Sonoma. Kruse's passion for wine never faded, and he continued to consult during his 14 months of cancer treatment.
