Susanne Sapier – Vineyard Grant James, Ramona CA

Susanne Sapier has always had a passion for good wine and great fun. In 2008 Susanne purchased a property in the inland San Diego County town of Ramona CA to start a vineyard.Just three weeks later the first vines were planted. By 2011 sufficient quantities of her estate-grown grapes were ready to make the first year’s production of Vineyard Grant James wines. Named after her son Grant and father James, this family owned winery is rapidly growing by reputation and word-of-mouth. In 2017 Travel + Leisure magazine named Vineyard Grant James the #2 winery in the USA by visitor popularity; high praise indeed!

Join Susanne & Jacques Sapier on a voyage along Germany’s Main and Rhine rivers, from Nuremberg to Amsterdam. This is an area of stunning scenery and beautiful storybook villages. The Main and Rheingau appellations are home to Germany’s most prized vineyards and centuries-old wine houses. We’ll enjoy some of Europe’s finest Riesling and Pinot Noir (“Spatburgunder”) wines.
