Azur’s inception in 2007 is the product of proprietor Elan Fayard’s vision and dedication to producing terroir-specific wines that express the purity and nuance of the vineyards from which the grapes are sourced. Having spent several years in Provence, Elan sought to bring the wine inspiration and influence of her time living in France to Napa. She identified the desire for well-crafted wines that allowed for the characteristics of the land and the language of the fruit to be heard. She combined a focus on harnessing vineyard potential with the abundance of world-class fruit available in the Napa Valley and from that Azur was born!
Since the beginning, the focus of Azur has always been quality through intention. This guiding principle is what helped to produce the label’s first offering: a Provencal style rose that heralded the legitimacy of quality American rose. Elan then expanded her focus to include her lineup of character driven red wines that sing of Napa’s intensity, both of fruit and terroir. Crafted with care and a commitment to its origins, Azur is a reflection of Elan’s vision and passionate dedication. “Wines with identity”.
