About Defiance Vineyard

Established in 2012, Defiance Vineyard is a distinguished boutique vineyard situated in the eastern expanses of Paso Robles.

This vineyard has quickly become a staple among Paso Robles wineries for its exceptional cultivation of premium Petite Sirah and Bordeaux varietals.

The unique terroir of Defiance Vineyard, characterized by its significant diurnal temperature variations, is ideal for vine growth, making it a coveted location for viticulture within the Paso Robles region. With a steadfast commitment to environmental stewardship, Defiance Vineyard prides itself on its sustainable farming practices, meticulously tending to each vine and harvest by hand to ensure the highest quality.

In September 2020, Defiance Vineyard took a significant step forward by introducing its own estate wines, showcasing the extraordinary quality of its grapes. The estate’s offerings are renowned for their depth, richness, and natural equilibrium, featuring standout varieties such as Petite Sirah, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, and Malbec.

Operated by the dedicated Faulkner family, Defiance Vineyard embodies the collective passion and expertise of its members, who have been instrumental in building the vineyard’s infrastructure and shaping its vision.
