Julien Fayard

Winemaker, Krupp Brothers

Winemaker, Julien Fayard

Growing up on his family's small vineyard in the Provence region of France, Julien has not missed a harvest since he was 16. Weekend and holiday jobs on the family vineyard eventually turned into a career in the wine business. He trained in Bordeaux, working for the esteemed First Growth Château Lafite-Rothschild and Smith Haut Lafitte where he oversaw vineyard management and developed his winemaking skills.

After moving to Napa in 2006, Fayard began working alongside Philippe Melka as Director of Winemaking at Atelier Melka. There he honed his winemaking skills all the while learning more about the multiple climates and terroirs that make up the Napa Valley.

Country born: France

Years in the wine industry: 15-20 years

Winemaking Philosophy:
Vineyard-centric. A blend of new and old world, applying new world creativity and technology to the old-world focus on complexity and aromatics.
