Have you been to our tasting room yet? Come visit us in Seattle’s SoDo neighborhood in the heart of South Seattle. A great stop after a Mariners, Sounders or Seahawks game or before a concert at the Showbox SoDo – we’re just a mile and a half from CenturyLink Field and T-Mobile Park. And, we’re part of SoDo Urbanworks, home to nine premium Washington wineries, which is a great place for an afternoon of wine tasting. With plenty of indoor and outdoor seating, grab a glass of wine and a slice from Nine Pies Pizzeria next door and stay awhile. We can’t wait to see you!

 

What’s in a name

In the beginning there was one wine, a 2007 red blend that was striking in quality, approachable and delicious. It was crafted with impeccable attention to detail and the benefit of top-quality grapes. People loved it. But not every occasion calls for the same wine, so Nine Hats brought their advantages of winemaking expertise and vineyard relationships to an expanded portfolio of affordable, sophisticated wines styled for the modern consumer.

Originally blended from the declassified wines created for Long Shadows’ portfolio, Nine Hats stepped out of the shadows to put tasty, easy drinking, everyday wine in a bottle. We still rely on Long Shadows’ talented winemaking team to craft our wine, and friends like you to drink it.
