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

On the nose there is a medley of dark berry aromas and flavors that is restrained by some earthy, mushroom, fennel notes. A rich, full palate in which the acidity, tannin structure and fruitiness are counter balanced to deliver a long after taste with coffee bean notes and ensure the wine will age gracefully in the following years.

Food Matches

A perfect partner for beef wellington with roast potatoes and carrots.
