Due to our small size, this internship allows one to see many facets that are involved in boutique winemaking. Intern(s) have the opportunity to see and be a part of the decision making process. You will be exposed to all of the practical aspects of vineyard management and winemaking. I was an intern in the not too distant past and want to make it worth your while (you can learn more than how to best clean a 24s).

Harvest is physically demanding and thus intern(s) need to be able to: lift 50 pounds,  work long days if required, spend long hours on your feet, and spend a lot of time out side in the elements (sun, heat, bees, wasps, and all of that great stuff). We would prefer someone over 21 years of age
