2021 Harvest Intern
Carlisle Winery & Vineyards is a small ultra-premium wine producer located in the Russian River Valley of Sonoma County, California specializing in old-vine Zinfandel, red Rhone varietals, and some unusual white wines. While most of our fruit is sourced from vineyards throughout Sonoma County (including our own ten acres of Zinfandel planted in the 1920s and two acres of Mourvedre planted in 1910), we also work with fruit from exceptional vineyards in Napa Valley, the Santa Lucia Highlands and Paso Robles. Total case production for 2021 will be approximately 8,000 cases.

We are seeking one more highly motivated individual to join our small winemaking team for this year's harvest. The ideal applicant is enthusiastic, dependable, self-motivated, and very detail oriented. Excellent communication skills, the ability to perform physically demanding tasks, and the willingness to work long hours are also required. Applicants should possess, or be in the process of acquiring, a BS/MS in Enology, Viticulture, or a related field. With no formal wine-related education, previous experience of at least two harvests will suffice.

We work with a wide range of varieties, including: Zinfandel, Alicante Bouschet, Petite Sirah, Syrah, Mourvedre, Grenache, Semillon, Gewürtztraminer, Grüner Veltliner, Sauvignon Blanc & Muscadelle. Shared accomodations are available on the winery property at a reasonable rate.
