Company Description Jaffurs is a premium winery in downtown Santa Barbara focused on producing world-class, Rhone varietal wines.

In addition to our Rhone varietal program, we are expanding production for a sister brand focusing on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. We are looking for 2-3 dedicated harvest interns for the duration of 8-10 weeks during the peak season. This is a fantastic opportunity to learn small-lot, quality focused winemaking from an established and highly reputable Santa Barbara producer.
