Job Description:

Who we are
Founded in 2003, Vinfolio fulfills the needs of fine wine enthusiasts worldwide. In 2022, Vinfolio merged with Fine and Rare Wines Limited, one of the world's leading marketplaces for fine wines, spirits, and collectible experiences, with global offices in Asia, Continental Europe, and the UK.

Our unique platform offers the fine wine consumer an ideal 360-degree solution to more enjoyably pursue their passion for drinking and cellaring the world's best wines. We buy and sell collectible fine wine and operate the only true full-service wine storage facility in the United States. We provide a cutting-edge, purely web-based wine management software solution, VinCellar, which enables enthusiasts to manage their cellars actively. Vinfolio's Marketplace is the first and only platform available in the USA for collector-to-collector wine sales.

Our state-of-the-art warehouse and office headquarters are located in Napa, Northern California. We are a licensed retailer, wholesaler, and importer but have no physical storefront. We are currently looking to add a highly motivated, wine-knowledgeable, Sales Support Associate to join our Sales team.
