Diane de Puymorin left a corporate career in Paris to found a wine estate in southern France. A lifelong overachiever, she studied the terroirs and selected the very best for her new home, renaming the estate after her family crest: or, gold, and gueules, a heraldic term for red. The vineyards of Château d’Or et de Gueules, which are certified organic, are in the area known as Saint Gilles: a combination of drastic diurnal temperature shifts, vigorous winds, and a stony alluvial soil gives impeccably balanced wines, and Diane is campaigning to have this unique terroir recognized with cru status.
