Job Description
As part of our harvest team you will be exposed to all facets of grape processing and fermentation management. Winemaking will include, but not be limited to, the following responsibilities: punching down Small Batches Wine, pump overs, pressing reds with basket press, pressing whites with bladder press, barrel work, sampling vineyards, fermentation monitoring, some lab work, dragging hoses, draining tanks, transferring juice/wine, racking juice/wine, sanitizing tanks, hand-sorting fruit, crushing and howling with coyotes at night!

Positions generally begin in early September and run through to late November, depending on the vintage. However, we do have openings for candidates that would like to start earlier (May or June, 2018). Road 13 does not offer housing but will assist in the search.
A popular plan for several of our past Harvest staff has been to work through to November or even mid-December, and then hit the mountains and ski or snowboard for several weeks, weather permitting.

Please apply early for your Canadian Visa to avoid disappointment or delays later in the year.

Job Requirements
Candidates should possess: serious passion for wine, strong attention to detail, positive attitude, ability to work well with others, lots of energy and stamina to withstand long hours of manual labor for many days in a row.

Winery experience is necessary. Forklift skills a plus.

For non-Canadian residents: A valid work visa will be necessary to secure a position.

Please forward a copy of your CV and cover letter via email using the 'APPLY FOR JOB’ link above.
