Nine Suns is a new producer in the Pritchard Hill area of Napa Valley. The name of the enterprise is taken from Chinese mythology, in which the archer Houyi shoots down nine sun birds who are blocking the sun, causing dangerous imbalances in the earth’s natural cycles. The owners named their vineyard Houyi Vineyard after the heroic archer. Sam Kaplan, one of Napa Valley's rising stars, is winemaker.
