Episode 22

The “Live the Good Life” podcast has launched Episode 22:  NW Wine Industry – Interview with Ellie Zeron.  “Live the Good Life” is an Audio/Video Podcast focused on all things “The Good Life”. In Episode 22 of “Live the Good Life”, Host Aaron Diaz interviews one of his very favorite people in the Washington Wine Industry.  Ellie Zeron is the winemaker for Elk Haven Winery located on Red Mountain, here in Southeast Washington.  In 1999, with her newly acquired degree in Chemical Engineering, she traveled to the U.S. from Venezuela, to learn English and to gain experience in the Oil & Gas industry.  While living in Dallas, TX, she met her husband Jamie and they eventually moved to Auburn, Washington where they raised their two children.  After a few visits to Napa and Sonoma wine country, the vine rootstocks were planted in her mind, as the beauty of the vineyards consumed her.

She completed her Certification Program in Winemaking from the University of California, Davis in 2012 and has firmly entrenched herself into the Washington Wine industry ever since.  In 2016 she invested in some land on Red Mountain and in 2018 she planted Zeron Vineyards.  From all the research I’ve done, I believe she is the first Venezuelan-born winemaker in all of Washington State, and likely the Pacific Northwest.  Strap yourself in because you’re in for a treat today.  Ellie is one of the most energetic, charismatic and passionate people I’ve ever met, in any line of work. Make sure to join us on this episode of “Live the Good Life”!

We hope you enjoy this episode.  Thank you all for listening, and remember, wherever you go, whenever you can, always live the good life! – Until next time…
