by Press Release
August 15, 2019

Each year, Wine Business Monthly conducts a salary survey, diving into the current state of monetary compensation trends of all sectors of the wine industry—from vineyard workers to senior level management. An in-depth review of those trends will be revealed in the magazine's October print publication, but attendees to this year’s Summit will get a sneak peek into some of the insights and data collected from the survey. Register today.

Erin Kirschenmann, managing editor of WBM, will provide a review of wine industry compensation trends, specifically focusing on how these trends compare to other industries. As the national and local employment rates decrease, recruiting top talent into the winery has become a challenge for hiring managers and recruiters. As such, it’s becoming increasingly important to outside the wine trade—especially for experts in the finance and tech departments. But how can wineries compete with high-tech salaries? Kirschenmann will discuss how to use benefits and non-monetary compensation as a recruiting tool to attract such potential employees. Lastly, she’ll also discuss the results of a wine industry-specific gender pay study.

About Summit Summit is a forum for HR professionals to connect with their peers and discuss the hiring, retention and training of winery employees. The event is a full-day conference taking place on September 4, 2019 at The Archer Hotel, located at 1230 First Street in Napa, Calif. The forum sells out quickly – be sure to register early to secure your seat to learn from some of the great HR minds in the industry. A full agenda can be found at
