Élan Fayard

Élan Fayard has a wide-ranging international background that encompasses tourism, gastronomy, wine and journalism. Originally from the Bay Area, Élan found her way back to Northern California after living in the Willamette Valley in Oregon where her love of wine blossomed, followed then by living and study in the Loire Valley in France where she began a life long love affair with the French culture.
Her interest in wine and France led to additional studies in Bordeaux and to Provence where she and her husband lived and worked. Throughout her time in France and then back in the U.S. she has held public relations, sales and marketing positions with wineries including Napa's Signorello Vineyards, Russian River Lynmar Estate as well as Diablo Grande Wine Gallery in San Francisco.
Her love of journalism also allowed her to be a national radio host and food critic in the Bay Area. She is a Direct-to-Consumer Sales and Marketing Consultant for wineries in Napa Valley, including Alpha Omega Winery, Long Meadow Ranch Winery & Farmstead, Flora Springs and Ehlers Estate.

She and her husband are owners and producers of Azur Wines, Napa Valley.
