Crazy Napa Valley Startup Winery Looking For Help!

Erosion Wine Co.

Yountville, CA

Job Description:

Erosion Wine Co. is hiring! We’re looking for hard working, fun, and passionate people to join our family. What’s the job? It’s a “Jack / Jill of All Trades”!

This is the perfect opportunity to be involved in all facets of what we do-- winemaking, hospitality, and logistics. We will be making groundbreaking, adventurous wines, working with outstanding Napa Valley grapes and using incredible new equipment to make these fun wines. Plus, you'll get bragging rights for being the first employees ever at Erosion Wine Co.! This is a great opportunity for you to forge your own path within Erosion Wine Co., and also for anyone who has dreamed of starting their own winery.

As a startup winery, we’re looking for people who are willing and able to do it all. During harvest, this will mostly entail working the crush pad, punching down / pumping over ferments, lab work, cleaning floors and tanks, among other glamorous and muscle building tasks. Shortly after harvest, we expect to open our Tasting Room, and we’ll need your help there! We’ll also need your help with packaging wine and shipping it to our club members. In mid-2020, we’ll try to grow up a bit and formalize job positions to best fit your talents.

We’ll consider anyone who has a great attitude, a love of learning, the ability to follow directions, a clean criminal and driving record, and a passion for wine. A love of beer doesn’t hurt, either.

We at Erosion Wine Co. believe that flavor comes first. Our approach is unique to the Napa Valley in that we create one-off wines in a non-stylistic, non-vintage, non-appellation, non-nonsense sort of way, and we put our delicious wine into cans. Cans! We think wine should be fun for us to make and for our customers to drink.

Instructions: If you've read up to this point, congrats! Please include in your application a short statement of an experience you've had that changed the way you think about wine. Also, please let us know in a few sentences why you think taking this position would be a good idea.

Erosion Wine Co. is an equal opportunity employer. All applicants will be considered for employment without attention to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, veteran or disability status.
