Harvest Help

Foursight Wines

Boonville, CA

Job Description:

Foursight Wines -- a small, 1,500 case winery on an estate vineyard in Anderson Valley -- is looking for harvest help. We are a family team looking for one great person who wants to experience every aspect of harvest. We produce mainly Pinot Noir in a very old-world way: no inoculations, hand punch downs in small 1 ton fermentations, stem inclusion, and pressing in a wooden-slatted basket press. Our wines consistently earn top scores and recommendations in publications from the Wall Street Journal to the SF Chronicle, Burghound, Wine Spectator, Wine and Spirits and more.
We are looking, first and foremost, for someone who has a passion for wine, a strong work ethic and the tendency to be a perfectionist. Harvest hours can be long and unpredictable and winemaking is a physical job. If you’re not in good physical shape and can’t lift 50lbs, this may not be the position for you.
The position would have a base hourly salary, housing, and some meals and beverages (wine) provided. It will last from mid-August (starting with bottling) through mid-October (after barreling down the last lot). Tasks will include whatever it takes to produce world-class Pinot Noir, from the vineyard to the winery.
