You want to learn about winemaking, learn about the vineyard.
Pamplin Family Winery is located in the Chehalem Mountains of Oregon (approximately 40 min. from Portland). We are dedicated to producing the finest Bordeaux variety based wines sourced from the best Columbia Valley vineyards in Washington State.
I have a vineyard tech position available for the right candidate. Responsibilities will include cluster sampling and vineyard assessment at some of the finest vineyards throughout the Columbia valley appellation and lots of driving. This position will fulfill the critical role of determining pick dates through accurate and consistent cluster sampling. A company car will be provided.
This is a great opportunity for a viticulture/enology student to learn viticulture strategies that maximize fruit quality in the field and to experience the dynamics of making picking decisions (the most important decision in winemaking).
Get out of the cellar and into the vineyard.
A clean driving record and safe/aware driving skills are required. Candidates should be located or willing to relocate to the Portland, OR metro area. We have housing available.
Candidates must like to work hard, have a positive can do attitude, be eager to learn, pay attention to the details, and above all, love what they are doing. Employment will run from mid August to mid-October. Previous experience and/or formal education are a plus. Personality and conversation skills goes a long way.
Please forward a cover letter and resume along with your work references.
Thanks for looking.
