List your wine industry-related job opportunities here in this sticky thread.
Apparently I'm lazy, have a narrow agenda, and offer little in the way of content and substance (RMP) (and have a "penchant for gossip" -KBI)

Hi guys,
We are looking for distributors and part-time sales to sell our wine preserver to wine club, restaurant, tasting room,vineyards, etc.
Our wine preserver is an automatic electrical wine pump. It could pump air out of bottle automatically and could keep the opened wine fresh for a long time.
In addition, it could indicate the wine temperature and storage time. So it could be widely used, especially in wine club and tasting room.
If you have good connection with these markets, please contact
lisa@freshmywine.com
You could also find more information on: www.freshmywine.com
Frankly, only the wine preserver on this web is our original products. If you sell the other products, you could also get commission, but we don't need distributors for the other goods.
Lisa

Foursight Wines -- a small, 1,500 case winery on an estate vineyard in Anderson Valley -- is looking for harvest help. We are a family team looking for one great person who wants to experience every aspect of harvest. We produce mainly Pinot Noir in a very old-world way: no inoculations, hand punch downs in small 1 ton fermentations, stem inclusion, and pressing in a wooden-slatted basket press. Our wines consistently earn top scores and recommendations in publications from the Wall Street Journal to the SF Chronicle, Burghound, Wine Spectator, Wine and Spirits and more.

We are looking, first and foremost, for someone who has a passion for wine, a strong work ethic and the tendency to be a perfectionist. Harvest hours can be long and unpredictable and winemaking is a physical job. If you’re not in good physical shape and can’t lift 50lbs, this may not be the position for you.

The position would have a base hourly salary, housing, and some meals and beverages (wine) provided. It will last from mid-August (starting with bottling) through mid-October (after barreling down the last lot). Tasks will include whatever it takes to produce world-class Pinot Noir, from the vineyard to the winery.

If you are interested in the position PM me with your details.
Drink to remember not to forget!

Howdy -

Enkidu Wine is looking for part-time help pouring wine at our Sonoma Valley tasting room from August through November (and beyond?). Primary responsibilities would include pouring wine for tasting room guests, ringing up orders through our POS system, stocking shelves, packing wine club orders, in addition to providing an enjoyable and educational customer experience.

Hourly wage beginning at $13, and could be higher depending on experience. Employees also receive a generous discount on wine. Hours may vary slightly week to week, and weekend availability is a must. Prior tasting room experience is beneficial, though not mandatory. Resume and cover letter may be sent to me at pmluckin@enkiduwines.com.

Thanks!

Patricia Green Cellars

Looking for bottling and harvest help.

Seeking one full-time and possibly one part-time/on-call person.


We are a medium-sized producer of around 10,000 cases consisting nearly entirely of Pinot Noir. Wines are of exceptional quality however the facility leaves things to be desired which makes the work more difficult than in other locations. Long days of standing on concrete sorting fruit, driving folklift (no experience necessarily required although that certainly does not hurt), cleaning up, punching down, moving stuff around and cleaning up (it’s in there twice for a reason) take their toll on even hearty, fit and experienced individuals so decent physical strength and mental fortitude are excellent attributes to bring to the table. Days can be long and in general a 7 day/week schedule can be expected for the better part of a month beginning in mid- to late-September. Bottling and training to start in the latter part of August/earlier part of September.

We are located several miles from any actual town (about 8 miles from Newberg, Carlton, Lafayette, Gaston and Dundee) and 30 miles from downtown Portland. We do not have the ability to offer any type of housing unless you are particularly keen on a tent. Pay is hourly with time and a half as required (starting wage would be negotiable based on experienced and qualifications but don’t have grand expectations as to what that starting wage is going to be). Meals and beverages are pretty much provided. Work atmosphere is generally pretty casual and at times even a bit jovial and there is certainly no dress code beyond the necessities of waterproof footwear and layered, water-wickable clothing conducive to cold early mornings that segue into warm, sunny afternoons.

Depending on what harvest looks like there could be a second job for a part-time/on-call person to work on particularly busy days. This job would almost uniformly be in the area of sorting fruit and cleaning up. Past harvests have yielded around 10-12 days worth of work spread out over the first two to three weeks of harvest. This is oft times more about finding the right person to fit into a completely unstructured schedule doing the most monotonous of jobs. People with incredibly flexible schedules of some sort work best here. No guarantees about this as it is utterly dependent upon how harvest looks like it will shake out and what our labor demands will end up being.

This is a pretty good harvest gig. You get treated well as long as you show up on time, work hard, have a good attitude and don’t break anything really expensive. Broadly speaking, this would not be the most amazing learning-on-the-job situation one could ever find in the wine industry beyond seeing how a rustic operation can operate efficiently and effectively.

For further information or to send a resume please email pgcwinery@netzero.com. Please do not call the winery regarding this matter.
Co-owner, Patricia Green Cellars

Patricia Green Cellars is looking for full and part time workers for the 2016 harvest. It is early in the year to begin this search or for folks to consider this job. However, in 2015 three of the six positions we hired for were filled by out of state folks on a break from their real jobs. We have between four and six positions available.

At least one of those we are looking solely for a person who will work basically for two weeks at the height of harvest. The job requires the flexibility to be able to begin work when we will know when those two weeks are which is generally only about two weeks before we would need someone to start. The position almost solely is pigeaging (getting into our fermentations in lieu of punching them down). Person must be physically fit, energetically positive, hygienic, at least somewhat uninhibited and okay with a decent amount of working largely on their own. Their may be two of these positions open but that is too early to decide at this juncture.

Other positions are normal harvest and (potentially) bottling positions. Sorting fruit and cleaning stuff up are largely the order of the day. People must be physically fit, have strong work ethics, take direction very well, have the ability and capacity to work 60-80 hour weeks, have at least 1 month available, have some form of social skills that allow them to work within the context of a team and an interest in the wine business is a plus but this is not a teaching winery so if you are seeking a place that will explain winemaking this is not the right situation. Fork lift driving experience is a massive plus.

Jobs pay $13/hour plus overtime. Food and beverages are provided. We are mostly in the middle of nowhere so having a place to stay/live and a form of transportation is a must. Patricia Green Cellars is an EOE and we basically don't care about anything other than that you can do the job we have described. The work is not easy, not incredibly rewarding in the here and now and is extremely repetitive so think carefully about this before applying.
Co-owner, Patricia Green Cellars

Since I posted this back in Februrary I thought curious people might think it out of date. Re-posting with some amendments.

The positions are normal harvest and (potentially) bottling positions. Sorting fruit and cleaning stuff up are largely the order of the day.

We just had a harvest worker bail on us yesterday leaving us one important person down. Posting lots of places. This job likely isn't for the collection of old, infirm and insane that frequents this board but maybe you have a daughter or niece or cousin, etc. that might fit the bill that you could pass this along to.

HARVEST WORKER NEEDED-VERY SPECIFIC POSITION

We recently had a person who was supposed to work a very specific job during harvest de-commit. The bulk of what this job consists of is pumping over fermenters and, more importantly, pigeaging (getting into fermenters so as to re-incorporate the solids with the wine) fermenters.

From the outside this would seem to be a job that anyone who was fit, not squeamish and relatively carefree about their appearance could do. In many places that may well be the case however here at Patricia Green Cellars this job is less about experience or skill set and far more about personality, outlook on life and an open mind on a variety of topics some of which involve wine and some of which do not.

So, basically we are looking for someone who is physically fit as this job definitely requires that, has a month to six weeks completely free to do this job (it will likely be a minimum of 6 days/week for that time period), can start within the next 7-10 days and can work diligently in a relatively unsupervised context.

Beyond this we need someone with a vibrancy to them which translates into a positive energy that is both outgoing and in-taking. Being smart, intellectually engaged, creative, passionate, whimsical, fun while still being earth bound are all traits that we are looking for in the person that takes this job. Ultimately you will be getting into nearly every fermenter of Pinot Noir we make and this interacting at a very personal level with our wines. We are putting a lot of trust in the person who does this job so while there is a fanciful element to it there is a highly serious aspect to it at the same time.

We offer $14/hour with overtime. All meals are basically provided (you may be on the hook for dinners if we finish early enough in the day), if you are from out of state I can likely find you nearby accommodations but you would have to get yourself here. The environment is low key although there is urgency because we work hard, quickly and efficiently. There is a good team of people and you are way out in the countryside.

Patricia Green Cellars

Looking for harvest help. Pigeage and cleaning up.

Seeking two full-time and possibly one part-time/on-call person.

We are a medium-sized producer of around 12,000 cases consisting mostly of Pinot Noir. We have a very non-descript building that does not allow for much in the way of machine operations. On top of this we are a fairly old school operation that treats things in a fairly labor-intensive sort of way.

We are looking for individuals to do pigeage and clean. Pigeage is largely to entirely the way we handle fruit that has been harvested and going through the fermentation process to turn it into wine. It involves people getting into the fermenters to re-incorporate the grape solids with the liquid using feet and legs on a once or twice a day basis. From a physical standpoint this involves getting up on, into and out of 4 foot high vessels over and over, and having the strength and stamina to use upper body to hold you while your legs slowly tread through the grapes. This can be rough on your skin over the course of the 3 or so weeks of harvest. High level of personal hygiene is necessary and a general bent towards cleanliness is extremely helpful as there is a lot of cleaning in the winery associated with this job. A degree of immodesty is necessary as well since everyone else is going to be wearing boots, pants, long-sleeved shirts (or whatever the weather of the day requires) while folks doing this job will largely be in shorts and a t-shirt and covered in juice/wine.

On another level this job also requires a fairly significant positive attitude and good energy. While these are “just” fermentations these ultimately result in the wines that we produce and sell. Getting into the fermenters and having the level of physical contact with the grapes and wines that this job requires creates a distinct relationship between the pigeagers and the fermentations and the resulting wines. Not looking for pie-in-the-sky attitude but a healthy view of life along with the physical health to do the job are what we are getting at here.

This is a pretty good harvest gig in terms of how your employment will go. You get treated well as long as you show up on time, work hard, have a good attitude and don’t break anything really expensive. Broadly speaking, this would not be the most amazing learning-on-the-job situation one could ever find in the wine industry beyond seeing how a rustic operation can operate efficiently and effectively. It is important to emphasize this point, this is not a learning winery beyond witnessing things and taking them in. While it is not as if we won’t address questions or tell you what we are doing and why, the point is that what we need someone for is really, really basic stuff that mostly involves getting into fermenters and cleaning stuff up.

This is a job description written to discourage people from applying for this job. There are two owners and a handful of full-time people whose livelihoods depend on the ability of this winery to produce some of the best wines made in Oregon. Having to manage personalities and folks’ issues with this job during the middle of harvest is severely problematic for us so we go to great lengths to explain the mundanity of this job to wholeheartedly discourage people from wanting to take it.

For further information or to send a resume please email jim@patriciagreencellars.com. Please do not call the winery regarding this matter.

Patricia Green Cellars for the 2019 vintage.

Looking for harvest help. Sorting fruit, pigeage and cleaning up.

Seeking two full-time and possibly one part-time/on-call person.

We are a medium large-sized producer of around 20,000 cases consisting mostly of Pinot Noir. We have a very non-descript building that does not allow for much in the way of machine operations. On top of this we are a fairly old school operation that treats things in a fairly labor-intensive sort of way.

We are looking for individuals to do sort fruit, pigeage (literally getting into fermenters to mix solids and wine/juice) and clean up (practially the biggest part of the day every day). Sorting fruit is exactly what it sounds like. Our fruit arrives pretty clean and we are not insane about getting it perfectly cleaned but we do a fairly rigorous sorting. Definitely an assembly line type gig that requires awareness, good energy, stamina, a strong back, a decent personality and an eye for keeping things orderly. Pigeage is largely to entirely the way we handle fruit that has been harvested and going through the fermentation process to turn it into wine. It involves people getting into the fermenters to re-incorporate the grape solids with the liquid using feet and legs on a once or twice a day basis. From a physical standpoint this involves getting up on, into and out of 4 foot high vessels over and over, and having the strength and stamina to use upper body to hold you while your legs slowly tread through the grapes. This can be rough on your skin over the course of the 3 or so weeks of harvest. High level of personal hygiene is necessary and a general bent towards cleanliness is extremely helpful as there is a lot of cleaning in the winery associated with this job. A degree of immodesty is necessary as well since everyone else is going to be wearing boots, pants, long-sleeved shirts (or whatever the weather of the day requires) while folks doing this job will largely be in shorts and a t-shirt and covered in juice/wine.

On another level this job also requires a fairly significant positive attitude and good energy. While these are “just” fermentations these ultimately result in the wines that we produce and sell. Getting into the fermenters and having the level of physical contact with the grapes and wines that this job requires creates a distinct relationship between the pigeagers and the fermentations and the resulting wines. Not looking for pie-in-the-sky attitude but a healthy view of life along with the physical health to do the job are what we are getting at here.

This is a pretty good harvest gig in terms of how your employment will go. You get treated well as long as you show up on time, work hard, have a good attitude and don’t break anything really expensive. Broadly speaking, this would not be the most amazing learning-on-the-job situation one could ever find in the wine industry beyond seeing how a rustic operation can operate efficiently and effectively. It is important to emphasize this point, this is not a learning winery beyond witnessing things and taking them in. While it is not as if we won’t address questions or tell you what we are doing and why, the point is that what we need someone for is really, really basic stuff that mostly involves sorting fruit, moving things around, getting into fermenters and cleaning stuff up. Forklift driving skills are a super-bonus.

This is a job description written to sort of discourage people from applying for this job. Patty passed away in 2017 leaving only one owner-operator and a handful of full-time people whose livelihoods depend on the ability of this winery to produce some of the best wines made in Oregon. Having to manage personalities and folks’ issues with this job during the middle of harvest is severely problematic for us so we go to great lengths to explain the mundanity of this job to wholeheartedly discourage people from wanting to take it.

The pay is at to above the standards of the industry (probably in the $16-$18/hour range depending on a myriad of factors plus OT), we provide breakfast and lunch and beverages at a minimum. If you are from not around these parts we don't have tons of ability to provide housing or transportation. Might be able to help out but we don't have a guest house or anything like that.

For further information or to send a resume please email jim@patriciagreencellars.com or text me at 503-572-8907. Please do not call the winery regarding this matter.
Co-owner, Patricia Green Cellars
