Tamber Bey Vineyards is hiring interns for the upcoming 2021 harvest. Interns will be exposed to a wide variety of fruit while focusing primarily on high-end Napa Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the Sonoma Coast. We also bring in smaller quantities of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Sauvignon Blanc, Grenache, Syrah, Nebbiolo, and Petite Sirah. In addition to the Tamber Bey estate-grown wines, interns will see a number of Thomas Rivers Brown’s boutique projects, including (to name a few): Boars’ View, Maybach, Senses, Aston Estate, Rivers-Marie, Shibumi Knoll, Hobel, and Jones Family.
Job responsibilities include, but are never limited to: sanitation, fruit receiving, barrel work, fermentation cap management, draining and pressing, topping, and (potentially) forklifting.
International candidates will need to secure a visa before applying—however, in times of pandemic, gaining such a visa will be difficult. All interns are responsible for their own housing and transportation. Specific start and end dates will be determined once the growing season progresses; but generally the internship begins in August and ends in November. Please include a well-written cover letter with your resume because I like to read.
Prior harvest experience is desired; however, it is not required. A positive attitude, great work-ethic, and the ability to adapt with the season can override lack of experience. As with most agricultural jobs, the capacity to lift 50 lbs., climb stairs, push/pull heavy objects (like pumps and stem bins), and stand for long periods of time in both cold and hot weather is required. Candidates are also expected to work long hours including nights and weekends, meaning that there is substantial opportunity for overtime.
Ideally, we are looking for positive, self-motivated, passionate people that push themselves to learn and get better every day.
Pay will be determined based on experience
