We are seeking an energetic, hardworking, hospitality driven, team player to join our 32 Winds crew! We take both our jobs and our fun very seriously. If this sounds like you, join our crew.
Quality, individual growth, friendship, and good times are all cultivated at our foundation. We take this to heart with the vinification of our beautiful wines, the shared experiences that surround them, and the friendships they forge. These values, along with our stewardship of the land, are at our core.
We are looking for individuals who share these same values to join our team.
32 Winds is a small, family-owned winery focused on creating the finest wines from legendary Sonoma County and Napa Valley.

Our hand-selected vineyards are located in the AVA’s of Sonoma Coast, Russian River Valley, Napa Valley, and Dry Creek Valley.

Sherry Harkins is the big heart behind the magic of the 32 Winds.. She has been with us since the beginning and is the architect crafting our guests’ Tasting Room experience into what it is today -- a warm and inviting atmosphere that will leave you feeling as though you have always been a part of our family… and we hope you will be!
