Actor, 13 Reasons Why, Co-Host Coupla Grapes
A Berkely Football Star turned actor, turned wino! (We like where this is going!) Raised in Napa with valley roots generations deep, Austin grew up in wine country and always had a connection to the wine world. His Grandfather purchased the house he currently lives in, along with several surrounding properties in the Napa area for a six pack of beer and a plumbing job back in the 1950s. After graduating from UC Berkley, where he met his fiancé Kristen McNamara, Austin landed the role of Luke Holiday on popular Netflix series 13 Reasons Why. Since gaining fame from this role he has a deep connection to, he’s used his fame to help promote wineries back home in Napa. Through his IGTV show Coupla Grapes that he Co-Hosts with Kristen, he helps share the stories and the wines of boutique wineries throughout the valley and beyond. Austin and Kristen have the goal of learning about wine with their viewers as they help promote these wineries.
Though he may not have a winery in his direct backyard, during his spare time, Austin loves tending to his outdoor garden and playing with his cats.
