Job Description:

VinIberia Selections is a CA-based importer and distributor with a mission to work with family-owned and operated small production wineries in Spain and Portugal, in order to bring undiscovered quality wines from the region to the attention of US retail shops, restaurants and consumers. All of our wines are at least sustainably produced and we are moving towards working with primarily organic, biodynamic and natural wines to address the demands of our buyers and their customers.

The open position is for a sales representative to cover Ventura County and Santa Barbara County. Availability during weekdays (Tuesday-Thursday) is essential. This would be an ideal position for an experienced rep looking to add an additional book or for a somm who works evenings/weekends only.

The job requires excellent communication and organizational skills, creativity, and a tenacious work ethic.

Qualifications:
Knowledge of wines, regions and varietals – WSET/CWS not required, but it is a plus.
Wine sales or other hospitality industry experience in/around the Central Coast.
Dependable vehicle with current registration, valid California Driver’s License, proof of automobile insurance, and acceptable driving record.
Ability to lift and carry a 45 lb case of wine.
ONLY LOCAL APPLICANTS WILL BE CONSIDERED.

The typical work week will consist of calling on wine shops and other retail where fine wines are sold, restaurants and wine bars (on-premise), in an effort to promote and sell the wines in our portfolio. Seeking out and opening new accounts is required and expected. Determining the needs and desires of the individual accounts is an ongoing process. Pouring samples (when permitted, or dropping off bottles until then) and providing detailed knowledge of the region, our producers and their wines is an integral part of the daily routine. Confidence, passion and enthusiasm are invaluable. We are looking for someone to join our team who is self motivated, energetic, and fearless!
