Launched in 2007, Nine Hats was inspired by Long Shadows’ team of nine internationally renowned vintners. A decade later, the portfolio now stands on its own, with a tip of the hat to those who first envisioned it.
In the beginning, there was one Nine Hats wine, a red blend created from Long Shadows’ declassified barrels to support the winemakers’ ongoing, strict selection process for their signature wines. The overwhelming success of the Red Wine lead to the expansion of the brand and Nine Hats has come out of the “shadows” to assemble a portfolio of nine uniquely sophisticated wines.
Today, Long Shadows’ director of winemaking and viticulture, Gilles Nicault, and his winemaking team are dedicated to producing Nine Hats. The wines are styled for quality and everyday enjoyment.
