2024 Harvest Internship - OVID Napa Valley

OVID Napa Valley

Saint Helena, CA

Job Description:

Ovid. Napa Valley is located on Prichard Hill where we produce two Bordeaux blends and a Syrah from our organically farmed, 15-acre estate vineyard. In addition to those wines, we also make a white blend from grapes sourced throughout the state of California.

Together, our 4-person production team focuses on mindful farming and making balanced wines that represent our site. During the entire year, but especially over the harvest months, we work closely with one another and value collaboration, open conversation, a drive to learn, experimentation and having fun.
We’re looking to complete our 2024 harvest team by hiring two passionate and engaged individuals who complement our team dynamic. Our interns are involved in every aspect of the season. You will, for example, be sampling in the vineyard, working on the crush line, monitoring fermentation and wine chemistry, running the press, barreling down, and participating in decision-making conversations and tastings. Cap management is largely automated, which allows us to focus more intently on other tasks.
Along with general harvest duties, we offer an opportunity to take on a research project of your own choosing. Other exposures include fun lunches, wine, great conversations, and an abundance of encouragement. We give this process careful consideration and want to offer a mutually beneficial experience so that applicants can be exposed to a variety of tasks, growth opportunities, and as much responsibility as they demonstrate they can manage.

OVID. Napa Valley has a mandatory vaccination policy, which requires all of our employees to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, unless they have a medical or religious exemption approved by the company.

While we do require a previous harvest experience, we prioritize the following in assessing candidates:
•  Respect for all team members
•  Diverse backgrounds and perspectives
•  A willingness to be a part of the team
•  A positive attitude
•  Attention to detail
•  The ability to think ahead in anticipation of next steps
•  A sense of humor
•  Great communication skills

This position will begin in early July and conclude in the month of November with a pay range of $21.00-$24.50/hr. To apply, please upload a PDF version of your resume and cover letter to and tell us a bit about yourself (e.g. travel, wines you like, sports, hobbies, why you want to be in the wine business).

The above reflects management’s definition of essential functions for this job but does not restrict the tasks that may be assigned. Management may assign or reassign duties and responsibilities to this job at any time due to reasonable accommodation or other reasons.
