Tasting room attendant
Riley Hubbard’s journey as a winemaker spans all corners of the world and her wines are a reflection of a myriad of influences, education, and experience. Born and raised in San Diego, Riley received a degree in Ag Business with a minor in Viticulture from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo.
During her time at Cal Poly, she began her career in wine in Paso Robles at L’Aventure Winery under the tutelage of rogue winemaker Stephan Asseo. From working the tasting room, harvest production, to vineyard work, Hubbard immersed herself in the boutique winery’s lifestyle and lived on the property for a few years.
Building on her experience from L’Aventure, Riley moved to the Barossa Valley of Australia and worked a harvest at Torbreck Winery. Committed to learning more, she then moved to Montpellier, France and began working on her Master’s Degree with the Vinafera Euromaster program. She studied in France, worked at Domaine d'Aupilhac in Montpeyroux, France and finished her degree in Udine, Italy in the heart of the Friuli region.
Her love of the Central Coast of California called her back to the Paso Robles region where she worked as assistant winemaker at Law Estate Wines and is currently the assistant winemaker under Vailia From at Desparada Wines and consulting for Monochrome Wines.
Looking for a motivated individual with style and grace. No previous wine experience necessary. Just be personable and have a good attitude. Job requires availability from 2-7pm Fridays and Saturdays. Lots of potential for the right person. Opportunities for production, sales or bookkeeping depending on the fit.
