We hope to provide an environment that is both fun and rewarding for our interns. This is a rare and great opportunity to gain hands-on experience in quality wine production, with a reputable winery. The ideal candidate for this position is able to handle physically demanding work yet mentally stay focused for long hours at a time.

-Ability to climb, bend, and lift (up to 60 lbs) required.
-Previous harvest a plus but not required.
-Spanish speaking is also plus but not required
-Excitement and passion for winemaking a must!
