We invite you to VISIT US at our new tasting room in Seattle’s SoDo neighborhood in the heart of South Seattle. Just a mile and a half from Safeco Field, Showbox SoDo, and CenturyLink Field, we’re part of SoDo Urbanworks, a multi-tenant property that houses nine premium Washington wineries.  Adjoining our tasting room is Nine Pies Pizzeria, a New York style pizzeria offering pizza by the slice, whole pies, pasta and more.


What’s in a name

Launched in 2007, Nine Hats was inspired by Long Shadows’ team of nine internationally renowned vintners. 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.

2016 Chardonnay
Nine Hats 2015 Chardonnay
100% Chardonnay

Elegant, fresh and inviting with a vibrancy that elevates its minerality, quince and white peach flavors. This wine’s viscosity and bright acidity interconnect well with each other to provide balance and a lingering finish. The 2016 Nine Hats Chardonnay was sourced primarily from the Yakima Valley’s French Creek and Boushey Vineyards. It is a cooler AVA that helps retain the Chardonnay’s acidity and elegance. The wine underwent barrel and cement egg fermentation and was aged for 9 months on the lees.

2017 Pinot Gris

100% Pinot Gris

Sourced exclusively from The Benches Vineyard at Wallula (1,400 feet above the Columbia River), where a constant breeze moderates temperatures to capture fresh flavors and give the wine its vibrant mouthfeel. A light squeeze of the grapes on the press and a cool fermentation is used to enhance the Pinot Gris’ racy character. Appealing floral aromas lead to flavors of apricot, grapefruit, honey dew melon and lime zest with a hint of spice. The wine’s viscous mouth feel is balanced nicely by its crisp acidity.

2016 Riesling

100% Riesling

Sourced from German clone plantings and some of the Columbia Valley’s oldest Riesling vines, this wine offers classic and distinctive Riesling character. Notes of citrus, jasmine,pear and honeydew melon combine with an appealing level of minerality and acidity to provide a fresh and lengthy finish.

2017 Julia's Dazzle Rosé

100% Pinot Gris

Pinot Gris grapes from select Columbia Valley vineyards were left to hang until they developed a bright tint, then gently pressed and the clarified juice slowly fermented at cool temperatures to retain its intensely vibrant aromatics and flavors. Fresh and lively with bright aromas and flavors of orange blossoms, strawberries and ripe melon complemented by a racy acidity that lingers across a clean, off-dry finish.
