Who We Are
We are one of Canada's largest and oldest wine companies with a rich heritage in quality winemaking.
We produce some of Canada's most recognized brands and offer our teammates a challenging and rewarding employment experience.
We are seeking extraordinary, passionate Harvest Interns to join our Red Rooster Winery Team. Red Rooster Winery is perched above Okanagan Lake, surrounded by the rolling hills of Naramata Bench. Here we have the most inspiring views one could possibly imagine... which is probably why we tend to look at things a little differently. Our engaging and, at times, offbeat approach to winery experiences gives a unique flair to everything we do. Our wines consistently receive top honours at major wine competitions around the world, including six Lieutenant Governor's Awards of Excellence. In addition, we are one of the Okanagan's most innovative and environmentally sustainable wineries with an extensive health and safety program. Producing roughly 50:50 white and red as well as sparkling and fortified wines, we employ various winemaking techniques, and have a small but skilled team you will enjoy working with.
