Longboard Vineyards was established in 1998 by Oded Shakked. A walking melting pot, Oded was born in Israel and has lived and worked (and surfed) on four continents. He fell in love with northern Sonoma County in the late 1980's and in his words: ''I felt roots growing from the bottom of my feet.''
With more than thirty years spent making wine - to him, it is a perfect combination of Art, Science and Agriculture; a craft that keeps you on your toes and never ceases to teach you something new - just like surfing does.
Warm, confident, independent, refined but down-to-earth; Oded's personality is reflected in every wine he makes.
