For Jim and JoAnna Sullivan, it began with a seemingly simple gift on their wedding day. An arbor of grape vine cuttings from JoAnna’s Uncle Charlie. Uncle Charlie couldn’t possibly have known what his gift would become.
Honorio Ramirez-Mata was born in September of 1959 in San Salvador de los Ahorcados, Guanajuato Mexico. This small village did not offer much of a future for anyone. People were forced to live on a day to day basis. This was the way of life as they knew it.
At a very young age, Honorio was taught by his father, Fabian, that the only way to survive was to live and work in the city. Which is just what he did. Fabian lived and worked in Mexico City and would send money back to his family in Guanajuato.
