Wine Grapes

There are 11 blocks at Defiance for a total 50 acres as outlined in the block map. Blocks 1 - 5 and 8 - 11 are Bordeaux varieties with block 6 and 7 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.
