Napa Valley native and Burgundian by adoption, Diana Snowden Seysses uses a studied balance of old-world tradition and new-world rigor to craft terroir-driven wines born out of a holistic approach to wine production. "The most memorable wines carry an echo of nature’s heartbeat. They are the result of vineyard work without chemicals, on a thriving soil ecosystem, and native yeast fermentation with minimal handling in the winery.” She holds a seat on The Porto Protocol Foundation’s global steering committee and is a member of the Académie Internationale du Vin.
Diana was nicknamed “Señorita Macho” at UC Davis for her enthusiasm for the physical challenges of winemaking. In her spare time, she weightlifts and gets lost with her dogs in the forests above Chambolle-Musigny.
