The Blocks At Defiance

There are 11 blocks at Defiance for a total 50 acres as outlined in the block map. Blocks one through five and eight through 11 are Bordeaux varieties with block six and seven dedicated to petite sirah.

We use sustainable and organic practices, from no herbicides and organic compost to dual drip irrigation, cover crops, and a process pond to conserve water. We do a majority of our faming by hand; the pruning, the thinning and the picking. Yields are limited to optimize fruit.
