Winemaker, Beringer

Treasury Wine Estates

St. Helena, CA

Job Description:

With over 2000 acres of top vineyard sites in Napa, Sonoma, and Paso Robles, Chief Winemaker Laurie Hook has an enviable portfolio from which to craft Beringer's acclaimed wines. Laurie and her vineyard team are careful to always use the highest quality fruit to make Beringer wines. However, the hallmark of many of the Reserve wines is the careful blending that goes into each vintage. The blending process is painstaking, and takes place over many months. Each lot of wine is tasted regularly, and its progress in the barrel is monitored daily by Laurie and her team. The final blend is only determined after multiple rounds of tasting and discussion, often coming down to half-a-percent difference in the varietals used or the components from other lots of wine. This exacting process, along with the passion and knowledge of Laurie and her team, is what creates wines of uncommon complexity, ageability and finesse, such as those that come from Beringer.

Treasury Wine Estates has an exciting opening for an experienced Winemaker to join the winemaking team at our historic Beringer Winery. This role works under Beringer's Chief Winemaker Laurie Hook to make winemaking decisions and is an integral part of all aspects of wine production at our St. Helena property. This person influences winemaking activities and is a collaborative member of the management team ensuring overall wine quality and cost goals are met. Additionally, this is a true brand ambassador and will occasionally require travel and PR for the iconic brand. Qualified candidates will have 8 - 10 years of winemaking experience, Bachelor's Degree preferably in Viticulture or Enology and will have a flexible, collaborative management style as well as confidence in public speaking and presenting.
