Niner Wine Tasting
TasteVin Wine Bar & Bistro – Winery Wednesday features Niner Wine Estates With special guest: Stephanie Miller from Classic Wines Flight of 4 wines: $15.00 2015 Niner, Chardonnay, Edna Valley, CA Today's Special Bottle to-go price; $23.99 2015 Niner, Pinot Noir, Edna Valley, CA Today’s Special Bottle To-Go Price: $33.99 2013 Niner, Sangiovese, Paso Robles, CA Today’s Special Bottle To-Go Price 28.99 ABOUT NINER WINERY Family owned & estate grown We are 100% estate grown and the integration of farming and winemaking is the foundation of everything we do. We currently farm a total of 223 acres across three different vineyards in Paso Robles and Edna Valley, and make all our wine in our LEED Certified Winery at Heart Hill Vineyard. We are known for our estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay as well as our flagship blend Fog Catcher; however, we grow a wide range of varietals and specialize in small lot bottlings that we allocate primarily to our Wine Club Members. After growing up on a farm in West Virginia, Richard Niner spent his career building small businesses across a wide variety of industries. One of his business ventures brought him to Paso Robles in the early 1990s and he was immediately drawn to the potential of both the land and the people who lived here. After a long search, Richard and Pam purchased their first vineyard, Bootjack Ranch, in 2001 and spent the next decade building a tasting room and winery, finding and planting two additional vineyards, and assembling the current team. In 2013 they retired and their son Andy took over the day-to-day management of the business. WE LOVE WHERE WE LIVE AND WHAT WE DO We are passionate about sharing our wines with our customers in every aspect of any experience. The Central Coast of California is truly a spectacular place, and we host winery tours, seasonally inspired lunch service and a variety of fun and creative dinners designed to showcase it. We believe that good people are the key to a memorable experience, so all our events are designed to be interactive and educational. Our Chef might decide to teach you how to shuck fresh oysters during a class; our Winemaker may lead a blending seminar with his favorite barrels; our Vineyard Manager might take you to the top of Heart Hill to geek out about rootstock. Regardless, our goal is to have guests walk away loving this place as much as we do.
