Title Harvest Intern
Employer Grace Winery
Employment Location Glen Mills, PA
Company Description Grace Winery is the newest addition to the Sweetwater Farm family.
The idea for the winery came about from the question, “What are you going to do with the old barn?” which was posed to us many times over the years. The answer varied depending on who was asked, but the winery concept always seemed to be part of the answer. In 2007, a recipient of the answer helped push us along by arranging a meeting with a group of people in the wine industry. Next time we turned around we had ordered vines and a tractor was delivered.
We focus on small batch premium quality wines using a combination of new world technology and old world techniques.
Type Seasonal F/T
Pay Scale $12-14/hr depending on experience, housing included
Employment Start Date September 1 or asap
Employment End Date November 21???
