Welcome to Episode 1170 Cynthia Chaplin interviews Laura Díaz Muñoz, in this installment of Voices, on the Italian Wine Podcast.

More about today’s guest:

Ehlers Estate Winemaker & General Manager. She was born in Madrid, Spain, Laura Díaz Muñoz’s connection to the land began at her grandparents’ farm in Avila where she spent her childhood summers. Some of her earliest memories were set in her grandmother's kitchen, where homegrown food was cooked daily over an open fire pit. “My grandmother taught me the beauty of simple food, prepared well,” says Laura. “This is the philosophy I bring to my winemaking. I believe that if you start with great ingredients, there’s no need to complicate the process in the cellar." Laura joined Ehlers Estate as winemaker and general manager in mid-2018.
