Job Description:

About Quilceda Creek
Quilceda Creek was established in 1978 by Alex and Jeannette Golitzin. The winery's first vintage was in 1979, making Quilceda Creek one of the oldest, family owned and controlled wineries in the state of Washington. Alex Golitzin’s inspiration to start the winery was nurtured through many visits to the Napa Valley in his youth, where he spent time with his maternal uncle, André Tchelistcheff, the legendary Napa Valley winemaker known as the "Dean of American Winemaking." Paul Golitzin joined his father as winemaker in 1992 and now directs all aspects of vineyard management and winemaking. With a gifted palate and a no-compromise commitment to quality, Paul focused the winery's attention on its greatest assets: the vineyards of the Columbia Valley. Quilceda Creek wines are an expression of five vineyards; Champoux, Galitzine, Lake Wallula, Palengat and Wallula Vineyards. Paul's vision catapulted the wines to a new level of excellence, resulting in some of the highest reviews and awards of any winery in the United States, including six 100-point scores from the Wine Advocate and one 100-point score from Decanter, three top 10 wines of the year in Wine Spectator, and Wine Enthusiast’s best Cabernet of the Year.
