The move helps Longhouse, founded in 2017, continue expanding throughout San Diego and Orange County. According to a press release, the company recently increased production 232% over 2019 production levels to meet demand.
“We are thrilled to have Longhouse Wines join the Scout Family! Their styles are a perfect complement to our portfolio as we continue to curate a high-quality, approachable wine program. They share our passion for bringing the best product and memorable customer service experience to our accounts,” said Scout director of accounts Lisa Penwell Govenar.
Founded by brothers Ryan and Andrew Jacobson, Longhouse Wines produces wines sourced from small “mom & pop” vineyards around California, with an emphasis on premium AVAs like the Sierra Foothills, Sonoma, and Monterey.
“Scout Distribution represents everything that a distribution partner should be. Their ‘rising tide lifts all boats’ approach is what separates them from the rest. From brand awareness to product positioning, they are constantly pushing to further the advancement of their entire portfolio. We are excited to work with the Scout team as we build together,” said Ryan Jacobson.
Longhouse will initially offer three wines through Scout, with plans to release a new wine every three months. The initial offerings include:
- 2016 Monterey County Pinot Noir – An old vine Pinot Noir with concentrated red fruit notes and bright acidity.
- 2017 Sierra Foothills GSM Red Blend – A Rhone-style French blend, 70% Syrah, 20% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre.
- 2019 Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc – Produced in 100% Stainless Steel with notes of lemon zest, stone fruit, and tropical undertones.
In addition to Longhouse, Scout now distributes local brands Bivouac Cider, Harland, Claxton Cellars, 32 North, Societe, JuneShine, and Abnormal.
