A brief history

The name Defiance holds a dual meaning. It is both a reference to the Faulkner family’s symbol of a falcon and the bold spirit that guides the brand.

Defiance first planted along the Creston Valley hillside in 2013. 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 Petite Sirah varieties. Defiance Vineyard captures the stunning views and laid back comfort and convenience of beautiful Central Coast.

The vineyard is run and operated by the Faulkner family, drawing on each individuals passion and expertise. It is a culmination of years of hard work, as all of the infrastructure and facilities were also built by the family. They invite you to experience their vision first hand, with a tour and a taste of Defiance Vineyard.

Defiance Vineyard Whipper In Bottle Preview
Defiance VineyardWhipper In

Our first in the Defiant Blend Series and tribute to Proprietor Bill Faulkner, this Red Blend keeps it namesake as it is evokes characteristics of all who are defiant: bold, intelligent, structured, fierce and unique. The name Whipper-In comes from the Faulkner Family’s love and history with horses. The painting pictured on the bottle label is Bill as a young man, and former president of the West Hills Hunt Club. In traditional fox hunting, there are several hunt staff and officials. Two of which are the Huntsman, and the Whipper-in. The Huntsman is in charge of directing the hounds, while the Whipper-in's main job is to keep the pack all together. We have our own Whipper-in, and you too can have one. It's our new Bordeaux Blend, and guaranteed sharing it with friends or family, will most definitely result in keeping the pack together 100% Estate.
