Do you have any other photos of it that show the front end? It looks like one of the Sac Spiders in the family Clubionidae or the family Chieracanthidae. It could also be a Woodlouse Spider in the family Dysderidae. Several species of Sac Spiders inhabit grape vines and regularly get shipped to distant places as hitchhikers in the produce.

I agree with Dysderidae, likely Dysdera sp.. Maybe Dysdera crocata.

Dysdera Crocata, woodlouse hunting spider.
