Into organics? Love wine? Join the team at Troon Vineyard, the only certified Biodynamic® Regenerative Organic winery in Oregon. We have achieved international recognition for our wines from leading wine publications in England and Italy and it is our goal to place the wines of the Applegate Valley among the world’s best. The American wine press has been equally enthusiastic, awarding Troon Vineyard more than sixty ratings of ninety or more points in just the last two years. Troon was named a Wine Enthusiast American Winery of the Year 2022. We have full-time, part-time and seasonal positions open.
Working at Troon Vineyard is a career-building opportunity that will offer you the ability to establish yourself as a wine hospitality professional. Team members are actively engaged in all vineyard and winery activities and we sponsor and require our full-time staff members to become certified wine educators by the W.S.E.T.
As you would expect from a Biodynamic® winery, our working environment is holistic and supportive. Our goal is to establish all of our team members as professionals. We believe that the time everyone spends at Troon should not only build our business but build lifelong professional career opportunities for each team member. On top of that, working at Troon is fun and you get to work in the stunning Applegate Valley!
We have several positions open for immediate employment:
Full-Time: We are seeking staff members that aspire to become hospitality professionals. People looking for a career, not a job. These are not entry-level positions, so do not apply if you do not have at least two years of experience in retail customer hospitality. Candidates with extensive experience in winery tasting rooms or in restaurant fine dining and hotels with full-bar and food service will receive priority consideration. As we will be making a substantial investment in training, only the most qualified candidates will be considered. Besides the competitive hourly pay rate there are substantial commission and bonus opportunities. Health benefits are also available after the required waiting period.
Part-Time: Do you love wine and agriculture and want to discover if the wine world is right for you? We are seeking candidates with more enthusiasm and energy than experience. This is your opportunity to get your foot in the door for a career in wine and hospitality. Discover the exciting world of fine wine sales with us. Our staff works with you to educate you on wine and all things Troon. Hours for these part-time positions will be on weekends.
