ABOUT NINER WINE ESTATES
Niner Wine Estates is a family owned and operated winery dedicated to the concept that truly great wine results from talented people controlling the entire winemaking process from the vineyard to the glass. Founder Richard Niner’s attachment to farming started early as he grew up farming a small plot of land with his father in rural West Virginia. Niner then followed a somewhat unusual path from farm to vineyard: after putting himself through college and graduate school, he spent over 30 years investing in small businesses. In 1996, one of these business deals brought him to San Luis Obispo County, where he found a renewed passion for farming and saw a bright future in the local wine industry.
Niner Wine Estates makes wine exclusively from grapes they grow themselves. Their singular goal is to create balanced wines that showcase the unique characteristics of its vineyards. They farm three separate sites: Bootjack Ranch resting on the eastern side of the Paso AVA, Heart Hill Vineyard settled on the western side, and Jespersen Vineyard nestled in the Edna Valley AVA to the south. While all three of our vineyards rest within 30 miles of each other, each has its own microclimate resulting in distinct wine profiles.
