About the winery: Red Car is a boutique winery focused on producing Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah from a network of cold climate vineyards located in the West Sonoma Coast. The wines are made in small lots utilizing minimalist intervention techniques, and our aim is to craft aromatic wines of complexity, finesse and balance. The winery name is a tribute to the electric trolley cars that ran throughout Los Angeles from the late 19th century through the early 1960’s. These evocative "Red Cars" provided transportation in a romanticized time and place. Our winery and tasting room is located a few minutes northwest of the town of Sebastopol, near Graton, California.
This is a part-time position. Availability a few days mid-week, and weekends are an absolute must.
Please email a resume and cover letter. No calls or walk-ins please.
