Longhouse Wines was founded in San Diego, CA in 2017 by Ryan Jacobson. While on a trip to Portugal, he was inspired by the elegantly designed wine bottles he saw throughout the country. These bottles had beautiful patterns and a character he hadn’t experienced in the US. After returning home, Ryan decided he wanted to produce wines based on his experience. The goal is that these wines would not only excite with their quality, but would visually enhance the entire tasting experience.
Thus began a 15 month journey through liquor licensing, wine tasting and bottle design. Ryan enlisted the help of Teddy Lewis, a designer and friend from Arizona State University, who worked his magic creating the beautiful and unique bottle designs. Below are just a few examples of the thought and creativity that went into the design process
Ryan Jacobson is not only the founder of Longhouse Wines, he is an entrepreneur with a passion for every project he takes on. After spending 5 years in medical marijuana brand development and 3 years in financial capital markets, Ryan knows what truly drives start up success. It’s not mastering the marketing flavor of the week, it’s how well you strategically manage risk/reward and execute a business plan through hard work. Couple that with knowing your target audience and providing a quality product and, in the case of Longhouse Wines, an overall enjoyable experience for wine lovers.
