Winery Harvest Internship 2024
Seasonal F/T
Niner Wine Estates
Paso Robles
Niner Wine Estates, a sustainable estate winery located in Paso Robles, is looking for 2 harvest interns for our 2024 harvest. The winery produces 100% estate grown Burgundy, Bordeaux and Rhone varietals from two vineyards in San Luis Obispo County – one in Paso Robles and the other in Edna Valley. Interns work in both the main production winery (300 tons) as well as the smaller craft winery (100 tons). This is an opportunity to work with two hands-on winemakers with a range of techniques and varietals in a LEED and SIP-certified, gravity-flow winery. Interns rotate through a variety of positions in order to gain an understanding of the entire winemaking process.
