VinMaps®- Our Story

Suzi, a businesswoman with a passion for fine wine and geography, founded VinMaps in 2001 to fulfill a growing interest in high quality wine territory maps. Suzi is an industry leader with a degree in Geography from San Diego State University, who has been working in the field of geography, specifically geographic information systems, since 1991.

What began as a small business has grown to a worldwide presence. From the wine tasting rooms of renowned wineries, to the homes of wine enthusiasts everywhere, VinMaps are being featured as premium works of art. Suzi is honored to have VinMaps featured in the training rooms of Total Wine, where they are part of the wine education experience.

Each VinMaps® focus is an artistic manifestation of thorough research, development, and design. Our unique premium maps are the perfect blend of science and art, fitting for both education and delight.

VinMaps are unique and collectible, and are wonderful additions to a wine cellar, home, den, or office. They make ideal gifts for wine enthusiasts, history buffs, and travel connoisseurs.

“The map I ordered, Wine Regions of Italy, arrived today in perfect condition. I was very particular about choosing just the right map and looked at more than a dozen and there is no doubt this was the finest one… A friend of mine happened to stop by and was also quite impressed with it.”
JP
“I received the map of French wine regions a couple of weeks ago, and it is very enlightening. Thank you so much!”
Clover
“Thank you so much for your excellent customer service! I am looking forward to their arrival and will send a photo of them framed.”
Valeria
“I received my France and Italy maps and took them immediately to my local Aaron Brothers to be framed. I picked them up the other day, and they really make a stunning display! I like the maps so much, and my only problem now is having to wait until Christmas to give them to my husband, the oenophile. Giving a great gift is terrific fun, but “waiting” to give the gift can be excruciating! Thanks for your great maps and prompt service.”
