Houyi shot down nine sunbirds, leaving one in the sky to restore balance to Earth.


In response, the emperor summoned the archer, Houyi, who scaled the highest mountain with his magic bow.


One day, rising together, their combined heat threatened to scorch the land and destroy crops.


Long ago, there existed ten sunbirds that took turns rising and setting each day.


Like the components of our wine, the NINE SUNS experience is a balance of the senses, places, people, and occasions that give wine its meaningful relevance. NINE SUNS aims to inspire connections to these memorable experiences, long after the last drop is poured. Join us.


Houyi Vineyard

Before wine comes fruit. Before fruit comes land. HOUYI Vineyard is named after the archer who shot down the sunbirds. It is the foundation of NINE SUNS wine, and also for other vintners who are partners in pursuit of excellence, each creating unique expressions of our Pritchard Hill terroir.



Nine Suns Winery

Situated on the Eastern end of HOUYI Vineyard, NINE SUNS Winery is the nexus of agriculture, science, history, art, and people essential to our wine. It is a landscape meant for your exploration and interaction – a broad spectrum of tastes, textures, and talents.


NINE SUNS produces handcrafted wines showcasing the distinctive characteristics of HOUYI Vineyard: our flagship NINE SUNS Red Wine – a Cabernet Sauvignon-based Bordeaux blend; a single-varietal Cabernet Sauvignon; and a Grenache-based Rhone blend. Our single-varietal Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache blend are only produced in years in which growing conditions and yields permit. Also produced is our NINE SUNS White Wine, composed of Sauvignon Blanc.

NINE SUNS wines are made available through our tasting room and by online allocation, released in the Spring and the Fall. Please join our mailing list to receive notifications about releases. Contact info@ninesuns.com to inquire about purchasing wine and visiting.
