2023 Cellar Internship
Company Description: Jaffurs is a premium winery in downtown Santa Barbara focused on producing world-class, Rhone varietal wines. We crush about 90 tons per year, and work with the highest quality fruit grown throughout Santa Barbara County. In addition to our Rhone varietal program, we are making a small amount of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. We are looking for a dedicated harvest intern 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.
Job Description: This is a hands-on, physically demanding position. We are looking for a highly motivated candidate, eager to learn and passionate about wine. Must be comfortable lifting up to 50 pounds and working on your feet for extended hours. Job duties include but are not limited to:
cleaning/sanitizing equipment
set up/break down crushpad
sorting fruit
barrel sanitation
wine movements from press-tank, tank-tank, tank-bbl, etc
fermentation monitoring (brix readings)
Interns are responsible for their own housing. Must have a flexible schedule and full availability during harvest. Previous winery experience is a plus, but not necessary for a motivated candidate. We are a small team that works hard but also likes to have fun! Winery lunches will be provided on crush days.
