Founded in 2012, Defiance Vineyard is a boutique vineyard nestled to the east of Paso Robles and is known in the area for growing premium Petite Sirah and Bordeaux varieties. Its terrior offers a diurnal temperature swing, providing optimal growing conditions, coveted by others in the region. The name Defiance holds a dual meaning. It is both a reference to the Faulkner family’s symbol of a falcon and the bold spirit that guides the brand. Dedicated to sustainability, Defiance Vineyard is all farmed and harvested by hand with the utmost attention to detail, producing grapes that are sought after by many well-known area wineries. In September 2020, Defiance Vineyard announced the launching of its estate wine, after seeing their perfectly concentrated and coveted fruit produce wines full of richness and natural balance. The Estate portfolio includes: Petite Sirah, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, and Malbec varieties.
