Background

"Défier is the French word for 'challenge' or 'dare' … we made this wine to try to create something that hadn’t been done in quite this way before. This is the third vintage of our fully carbonic, certifed-organic, 100% Merlot made from Santa Ynez Valley fruit in a 2-ton Flextank egg!

Founded in 2017 on a wild idea that turned out better than we'd dared to hope, Défier is a California-twist homage to Cru Beaujolais. We sort whole clusters into a giant egg-shaped tank, seal it up and let it do its thing; then age 10 months in neutral French oak. Velvety and super fresh all at the same time."  J. Brix Wines
