Harvest cellar worker - potential for full time work
Seasonal F/T
Waylan Wine Co. & Saarloos and Sons Winery
Los Olivos, CA
Saarloos and Sons winery and Waylan Wine Co are looking for one person to help with day-to-day winery work. We make wine just outside of Los Olivos on Foxen Canyon Road.

Although the work would be split between two different wineries, all work is done at the same winery and reports to one person a majority of the time.
Pretty cool experience, Saarloos and sons works exclusively with two estate vineyards located in the Santa Ynez valley and Waylan is sourcing smaller lots from high-quality vineyard sources all over the Santa Ynez valley.

We are looking for help outside of harvest as well. Depending on how the harvest goes, there is potential for full-time work, year-round.

Previous experience is preferred but not mandatory. There are going to be some long days, so really looking for someone that is reliable, works hard, and is easy to work with. There is no shortage of cleaning that needs to be done so be prepared.

Most weeks you will work Monday-Saturday but you may get an additional day off depending on workload.

Looking for someone that can start sooner than later.
December 2022, potentially longer
General harvest tasks

Need to be able to work on your feet for long periods of time, lift 50-60 pounds, and climb up and down a ladder.

- Vineyard sampling
- Processing grapes
- fermentation management
- racking/barreling down
- cleaning
- basic record keeping
- topping
- general cellar activities
Transportation is not provided but we can help with short term housing if needed.
