Harvest Winemaking assistant
At ONX winery, we specialize in blends off our west-side estate located in the coveted Templeton Gap AVA, as well as provide custom crush services for a handful of local premium brands.
Interns will join our small, four-person production team in processing small, premium lots over the course of the vintage and be exposed to all facets of the winemaking process.
ONX is looking for one more intern to help with all areas of winemaking during this upcoming harvest and includes the following:" Crush-pad and sorting-line operations
" Fermentation management (i.e. pump-overs and punch-downs)
" Barrel work (topping, filling, racking, cleaning, etc)
" Sanitation (Make it sparkle)
" Sampling (in cellar and vineyards)
" Wine and must additions
" Participation in on-site benchmark tastings, lot evaluations, and blending trials.
" Laboratory analyses
" Bottling prep and bottling line operations
Fork lift experience is a plus but not necessary. You will go through the training either way.
We provide lunch during the heat of harvest.
