August 5th
Early December with potential to work into the following year.
Our internship is a unique opportunity to gain experience in both large and small scale harvest operations. As a part of our small team, interns will participate in every step of winemaking and become familiar with a wide variety of equipment and procedures.

Duties include: vineyard sampling, fruit sorting, operating crush equipment, punch downs, pump overs, wine and juice transfers, bulk wine shipping/receiving, additions, inoculations, cleaning and sanitation, barrel work, and some lab analysis.

At Center of Effort we embrace the detailed, labor-intensive methods required to produce the finest wines. We strive to educate our interns in all aspects of winemaking while providing them a real world harvest experience. As such, applicants should be prepared to work extended hours in a physically demanding environment. This includes the ability to work in various temperatures, in bending or kneeling positions, and being on your feet for more than 8 hours a day. Qualified applicants are students with a positive attitude and strong desire to learn. Ability to follow direction and keen attention to detail are required. Applicants must be able to lift 50lbs and be comfortable with heights and confined spaces.
All interns will get forklift certified the first week of work. We supply a harvest lunch bar, stocked with many food and snack options.

This position is eligible for a $500 bonus.
