Tyler Winery Harvest Internship
Tyler Winery
Lompoc, CA
Tyler Winery is dedicated to producing wines of delicacy and balance, where structure and nuance are favored above all else. We believe wine should be elegant and honest, and possess aromatic purity and textural complexity. To best convey the individuality of each site, we try to be modern in our thinking and classic in our approach.

Our portfolio of wines includes those from our Mae Estate Vineyard, as well as many of the most historic vineyard sites within the acclaimed Santa Rita Hills AVA, focusing primarily on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. We also engage with various other varietals from sites throughout Santa Barbara County, such as Chenin Blanc, Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah, for our other brands and clients.

No previous winery experience is required, though an ideal candidate would have worked 1-2 previous vintages. At Tyler, you will work alongside owner-winemaker Justin Willett and his team in all aspects of the harvest and winemaking process.

The days can be long, but also rewarding and fun. Overtime, 6-7 day work weeks, and physically demanding work are to be expected. You’ll learn a lot, and gain exposure to our wines and those made around the world; all within an open and engaging environment, designed to help you strengthen your skillset and deepen your knowledge of wine.
