Have you been to our tasting room yet? Come visit us in Seattle’s SODO neighborhood in the heart of South Seattle. 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.

Rewarding from the first taste, beautiful minerality is present on the nose with a rich mouthfeel of black raspberry, licorice and roasted coffee. A bold yet well-balanced wine, this Columbia Valley Syrah is made from select vineyards that exhibit rich and distinctive varietal character. Red Mountain’s Vineyards give the wine its structure and opulent full body. StoneTree and Candy Mountain vineyards provide savory notes of smoked meats, tapenade and sage, while the 1993 planting at Dutch Brothers’ Vineyard in the Yakima Valley enhances the brightness. Aged 18 months in 70% neutral, 30% new oak barrels.

Known for its distinctive black purple hue, this Columbia Valley Malbec hits the ground running with savory notes of cured meats, muddled blackberries and baking spice.

Sourced primarily from Weinbau Vineyard on the Wahluke Slope, this wine has the structure to carry its weight throughout while softening gracefully with age. Aged 18 months in 70% neutral, 30% new oak barrels.

2017 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.


Buy Now

2018 Pinot Gris
100% Pinot Gris

Sourced from select Columbia Valley vineyards, 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. This medium-bodied Pinot Gris offers vibrant aromas and flavors of white peach, orange blossom, honeysuckle and ripe citrus that lead to a pleasantly crisp finish.


Buy Now

2017 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.


Buy Now

2020 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.
