Santa Rita Hills
We are a small company which manages about a dozen small vineyards in Santa Rita Hills and Los Olivos District AVA’s. Our clients represent some of the most exciting vineyards and produce some of the best wines in the region. All of our vineyards are farmed using strictly organic practices, and we employ animal integration and no-till practices where appropriate.
Year round position for the right candidate
We are a small company so the position will be extremely diverse and hands on. Prior to harvest we will be scouting for diseases and pests, collecting crop estimates, and charting that data. We also have a very long term Pinot noir breeding program that we will be shouting and charting data. Grape maturity sampling for our clients will occupy much of our harvest season, along with harvest data entry. After harvest we will be doing some vineyard development. We do all of our own design and irrigation installation in house so that will be an opportunity to learn some new skills. The position will involve a lot of fertilizer, pesticide, and amendment material ordering, tracking inventory, and potentially application. Additionally we are expanding our other non- grape farming operations, so there is an opportunity to become involved with other crops as well.
