Defiance VineyarD

Dedicated to quality, character, and complexity.

Defiance first planted along the Creston Valley hillside in 2012 . With a natural balance in the soil, terrain, and climate our terroir offers a unique and sustainable home for our portfolio of premium quality Bordeaux and Rhone grape varieties. Defiance Vineyard captures the stunning views and laid back comfort and convenience of beautiful Central Coast.

Bill and Cheryl Faulkner had a vision for their life that was based in family values. The vision included a place for family and friends to gather, and that led to the infrastructure of the vineyard. When the Faulkner's dedicate their energy to any project, whether that be large scale construction or a family run vineyard, they strive for perfection, and they most always achieve it.  

The vineyard is run and operated by the family, drawing on each individuals passion and expertise. They invite you to experience their vision first hand, with a tour and a taste of Defiance Vineyard.
