Position: 2023 Harvest Intern
Thomas George Estates is hiring for the upcoming 2023 harvest! We are a small family winery located in Healdsburg, CA, in the center of the Russian River AVA. We crush about 200 tons of premium fruit grown in our three Estate Vineyards. We specialize in producing premium Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, as well as other varieties such as Zinfandel, Viognier, Grenache Noir and Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, and Cabernet Sauvignon. We are committed to making wines that demonstrate site specificity and vintage character.
We are looking for interns that are interested in the winemaking process and in wine in general, are hard-working, have a positive can-do attitude, keen eye for detail, can work as a team and/or alone and are able to quickly adapt to changes.
Harvest interns will join our small team and are expected to perform tasks such as crop estimates, vineyard sampling, laboratory duties, winery sanitation, fermentation management and barrel work.
Creating experiments taps into the fun and energetic spirit of winemaking. Native fermentations, extended macerations, whole cluster inclusions, etc. all allies in the pursuit of our winemaking goals.
Internships are expected to begin in July/August and will continue through October/November, depending on the growing season. We do not work nightshifts, and you will generally have one day off a week during the peak of harvest. Schedule is flexible. Lunch is provided on the days we receive fruit!
