Founded in the 1970's By Jim and Patricia Hofherr, St. James Winery is named for the city it was founded in: St. James, Missouri, an area known for concord grapes and a rich Italian heritage. Jim Hofherr worked for a number of wineries before ultimately deciding with his wife to found his own winery. It is Now run by the second generation of Hofherrs, John and Andrew, following the death of their father Jim in 1994. Prior to this change, John Hofherr trained as a winemaker in Fresno, California, while Andrew Hofherr studied viticulture at the University of Arkansas. The two have since worked to improve the variety, quality, and efficiency of their winery, and have won a number of awards. They currently maintain vineyards in Missouri, Arkansas, and Michigan, bringing their total acreage to 500 and their grape varieties to 15. – Description from NekotoNikku
