Title 2018 Internship at Dakota Shy Wine Co.

Employment Location St Helena, Ca
Company Description Launched in 2008, winery built in 2017, focused on Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
Type Seasonal F/T
Pay Scale $15-20/hour
Employment Start Date August 15
Employment End Date November 15
Job Description Selected interns will have an opportunity to thrive at one of Napa Valley’s newest, state-of-the-art wineries during its second crush. Working intimately with the winemaker, assistant winemaker, and cellar master, interns will learn production tasks from our passionate staff.

Ideal candidates demonstrate an enthusiasm for good wine and hard work. Successful applicants can expect long and fun days during peak production. Previous harvest, wine, microbiology, enology, or viticulture experience is ideal, but not necessary. We have a great full-time group, and are excited to welcome like individuals with palpable passion for production. Employment will begin in mid-August and continue into November.

Our beautiful property is situated on the valley floor within the Rutherford AVA with easy accessibility from Silverado Trail. Our automatic pumpover systems fitted on all fermenters allow interns to spend less time pushing pumps and more time learning valuable skills in wine production. Regular lunches can be expected as a perk most afternoons and as fuel for hard work.

Commonly required tasks include, but are not limited to, work in confined spaces, climb a ladder, stand and walk for long periods of time, repeatedly lift up to 50 pounds, work with winery sanitation chemicals, use personal protective equipment, work outdoors and inside. Fruit Processing, fermentation management, drain and pressing, barrel filling and racking, winery upkeep, and topping make up the fun stuff.

Successful applicants will be over the age of 21, have a valid driver’s license, own a car, find housing, communicate effectively in English, and have legal United States work status. Potential candidates must be willing to work with limited days off. Reliability and self-motivation are essential skills
