Job Description:

Handwritten Wines & Jessup Cellars are looking for a highly motivated individual to join the wine adventure with incredible personalities and participate in the expansion of the Wine On Location team.

The Good Life Wine Collective represents Handwritten Wines & Jessup Cellars, two Napa Valley boutique wineries with tasting rooms in Yountville. While Handwritten Wines is known for its AVA-specific, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon wines & comparative style tasting, Jessup Cellars focuses on the art of the blend and diversity in varietals. We are passionate about creating memorable experiences through education and exceptional customer service. As the first tasting room in Yountville back in 2003, we are passionate about creating customer experiences that trailblaze the direct-to-consumer model. In 2014, an earthquake struck Napa, and with so many of our fans living across the country, we started bringing our wines and the Napa Valley Experience. Fast forward a few years, and, naturally, we began to offer virtual tastings for celebrations & corporate meetings. Today we are ready to expand our Wine On-Location Team!

Are you obsessed with customer service in all situations and building exceptional relationships? Are you diligent, attentive to detail, and support your team? Are you ambitious and dynamic? Do you have a love for wine education, creating unique experiences & traveling all over the United States to meet great people?
