“The complex, bright, and rich wines we produce are a direct reflection of the generational dedication and connection to our land.”
- The Faulkner Family


The Faulkner Family

Defiance Vineyard is a boutique vineyard nestled to the east of Paso Robles in the Creston District, and is known for growing premium Petite Sirah and Bordeaux varieties. Dedicated to sustainability, Defiance Vineyard is farmed and harvested by hand with the utmost attention to detail. The vineyard is run and operated by the Faulkner family, drawing on each individual's passion and expertise. 

Where the Wine is Made



In 2020, Defiance announced the launching of their estate wine, after seeing their perfectly concentrated and coveted fruit produce wines full of richness and natural balance. It is a culmination of years of hard work, as all of the infrastructure and facilities were also built by the family. The Estate portfolio includes: Petite Sirah, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, and Malbec varieties.
