Longboard Vineyards

Longboard was born from the passion of Oded Shakked, surfer first, winemaker later, who brings a unique perspective to winemaking, or rather winegrowing as he prefers to call it. Longboard believes that great tasting wines are those that are true to the people and place that grew them. Thus, they extend the notion of “terroir” to include the human aspect, not just the soils, climate and weather.

Tasting Notes

Deep ruby with purple hints, the nose is full of aromas of blackcurrant, violet and blueberry with a signature note of ripe olive. The generous mid-palate is full of sweet-tasting tannins, and dark chocolate flavors. The finish has more sweet blackcurrant and dark cocoa notes.

Food Matches

Perfect with beef carpaccio or a rare fillet steak.
