A Noisy Interview With Julian Faulkner Of Faulkner Wines, Provençe

Attempting to have an intimate chat with Winemaker Julian Faulkner at Toronto's La Banane just before service. More fool me...

Attempting to have an intimate chat with Winemaker Julian Faulkner at Toronto’s La Banane just before service. More fool me…


In my nine years of recording videos for Good Food Revolution I’ve come to discover that there is nothing better than a quiet hotel room when it comes to preferable locations for conducting interviews (see this week’s interview with Winemaker Paul Cluver).

Unfortunately 98% of the time it doesn’t quite work out that way, as with a visiting Winemaker’s hectic schedule one invariably ends up squeezing in a few stolen moments with them in a back alley or in a restaurant in the midst of setting up for dinner service, the latter being the case here.

Julian’s story is certainly an interesting one, from taking over the winery on his family’s Provençal property at 23 years of age, to expanding it into what Faulkner Wines are today. It’s pretty cool stuff.

Hopefully you can hear what we are talking about? And apologies to Toronto’s La Banane for the intrusion so close to service…
