Welcome to Château DeFay Vineyards!

Château Defay is a 3,000 case winery and vineyard located in Santa Maria de Jesus/Antigua, Guatemala. It is within an hour’s drive of Guatemala City and 30 minutes from Antigua. Jacques and Angie Defay purchased the former coffee farm in 2000 and converted part of the land into a vineyard. They also planted several acres of asparagus. The first grape plants came from Washington State. Thereafter, additional plantings came from cuttings propagated in our own nursery. They included Pinot Gris, Shyraz, Riesling, Fresa or Isabella. Our first release and opening of the winery was 2007.

Jacques and Angie Defay are the owners/winemakers of Château Defay Vineyards and the winemaker is Bruno Coppola.
