Welcome to Episode 1464 in which Marc Millon interviews Gudrun Cuillo, Author of the book Casalvento: House of the Wind, in today’s episode of Wine, Food & Travel.
More about today’s guest:
Gudrun Cuillo was born in Leibnitz, Austria. Soon after graduation, with her instinctive artistic flair, she joined the opera as an artist-in-residence for stage scenery and makeup. That work eventually took Gudrun to New York to continue her education.
While enjoying traveling throughout the U.S., Gudrun came to Florida where she fell in love with a successful entrepreneur and Broadway producer, Robert Cuillo, who was also Italian American. They married and in the ensuring years they established Casalvento Winery in Radda, Chianti Siena, Italy, and restored Livernano, a nearby medieval village, to its original splendor.
Gudrun has had two career passions: winemaking, which has garnered numerous awards and much recognition for Casalvento Winery, and writing. In her debut novel, Gudrun combines her life experience with her gift for storytelling.
Gudrun spends her time between Austria, Italy, and Palm Beach, Florida.
