Job Description:

Mira Winery—a name inspired by the Latin root of “miracle” and Greek for “destiny”—is a warm and welcoming family owned, 16-acre estate nestled in the heart of the Napa Valley, farming vineyards that were first planted to grapes in 1885. Revered and award-winning Co-Founder/Winemaker Gustavo A. Gonzalez’s long-held approach to winemaking is one of intention, precision and artistry. Using only sustainably farmed, 100% Napa Valley fruit, Gustavo allows each wine to reveal itself in its own time as a deliciously magical snapshot of a time and place, meant to be shared now and for years to come. Inspired by the divine proportions of the “Golden Ratio” from building to barrel, this innovative winery offers visitors both a naturally beautiful simplicity and a sense of mysteries yet to be uncovered.
