Our motto at Nine Hats Wines is Nine Hats. Nine Wines. A Hat for Every Occasion. And along with a hat for every occasion comes a wine for every occasion. Whether you’re a connoisseur, collector, or novice, Nine Hats has something for you. We’ve got our nine everyday wines to enjoy at a football tailgate or pizza night with friends, but we also make three reserve wines that come from some of the best fruit the Columbia Valley has to offer. These wines are a great choice for a romantic dinner or to bring to your friend’s dinner party if you’re trying to impress. We have affordable, delicious, high-quality wines that pair with a multitude of occasions, but we’ve laid out some of our favorites below just for you.
For all of you football fans (especially Seahawk, Husky and Cougar fans) you know that football season is here and there’s nothing better than getting the crew together for a tailgate. Whether you’re serving up some homemade chili, burgers, or pulled pork sandwiches, the 2016 Nine Hats Cabernet is your go-to tailgate wine. This Washington Cabernet is versatile, to say the least. It’s not only delicious, but it’s an easy-drinking, everyday red that you and your friends will love. The aromatics of this wine are extremely vibrant with layers of black and red berries on the palate. As fall approaches we recommend you stock your cellar with this complex, subtle wine for all your upcoming football games!
Did you know we’re hosting a DIY Pizza Night at our SODO tasting room on September 9, from 6-8 pm? If you haven’t made your own pizza before, now is your chance. And, you can pair it with the savory 2017 Nine Hats Red Wine for a deliciously fun combo. Just $20 will get your first glass of wine and all your favorite ingredients for your personalized pie. No matter what toppings you choose, the Nine Hats Red Wine’s flavorful characteristics will bring out the savory flavors of the pizza. If you find yourself loving this event and the wine, you can easily do it all over again at home with your crew, or let us make the pizza for you at Nine Pies Pizza right next door to our tasting room.
The great thing about the Nine Hats Reserve wines is not only are they impressive, quality wines, but they won’t break your bank. If you have an anniversary, birthday, or special occasion with a significant other or loved one coming up, this blend is the perfect bottle to bring along.
With each vintage of wines we set aside top lots and select barrels to create small production, reserve quality bottlings such as the Nine Hats Reserve GSM. This Grenache, Syrah, Mouvèdre blend is deep and brilliant with hues of garnet and dark mahogany. It’s powerful yet elegant with refined tannins that give off flavors of baked raspberry, wild cherry, sage, and dried herbs. If you’re looking for that special bottle to celebrate with, you can visit our SODO tasting room for a reserve tasting — no reservation required!
Who doesn’t love a glass (or two) of world-class Chardonnay on a Tuesday night? We sure do! Our $35 2017 Reserve Chardonnay is a great early week treat to pair with our monthly C U Last Tuesday (CULT) movie nights. The last Tuesday of each month our fans get to pick one of three movies to watch at our SODO tasting room. General admission is free, all you have to do is RSVP. We also offer VIP tickets for two at our movie nights. For only $45, you get to enjoy a full Nine Pies pizza of your choice with a bottle of Nine Hats Wine. Quality wine, quality pie, and a great movie is the perfect Tuesday trio. The 2017 Reserve Chardonnay is a wine we are truly proud of and love sharing! More than 80% of the fruit is sourced from Boushey Vineyard in the Yakima Valley, a cooler AVA that provides bright acidity you can taste first-hand. This wine is lively, graceful, and smooth all at once with freshness and depth that will have you coming back for more.
There you have it, wine to pair with any occasion! Although this is only a sneak peek into the wines we offer, we hope you’ll come into the tasting room to try them all – they are high-quality, affordable, and bound to find their way into your regular rotation. Be sure to share your favorite Nine Hats Wines with us on social media. Cheers and happy sipping!
