• Assist in vineyard sampling as needed
• Set up laboratory trials and tastings

• Distribute samples and products between facilities as needed
• Maintain a clean and organized work environment

• B.S. in Viticulture & Enology or similar Science field preferred (or in the process of obtaining a degree)
