2020 Harvest Intern (Wine Jobs: Vineyards & Cellars )


  Hirsch Vineyards

  Cazadero, California

Hirsch Vineyards is an estate vineyard and winery on the True Sonoma Coast, producing Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. We are family-owned and biodynamic, producing site-driven wines with minimal intervention.

We're seeking enthusiastic and motivated harvest interns to join our team for the 2020 harvest. Our team is small, and interns will have the opportunity to be involved in all aspects of harvest: vineyard sampling, fruit processing, cellar work, lab work, and tasting. Those looking for hands-on experience in a wide variety of winemaking and viticultural tasks will find the intern role at Hirsch to be rewarding.

The intern positions start in August and usually end in late October or early November. Actual start and end dates are harvest dependent.

Due to our remote location, you must have your own car.

Responsibilities and tasks may include but are not limited to:
•  Crop estimations
•  Vineyard sampling
•  Fruit processing
•  Fermentation monitoring
•  Fermentation management (punchdowns/pumpovers)
•  Cleaning
•  Barrel work (cleaning & filling)
•  Forklift operation
•  Laboratory work
•  Record keeping (paper and electronic)
•  Bottling work

•  Prior work in wine production of at least one year, and at least one full harvest
•  Strong work ethic and a positive attitude
•  Ability to work long and variable hours
•  Ability to perform physical tasks, such as lifting up to 50 pounds, repetitive movements, bending down, and ascend/descend ladders
•  Reliability and flexibility
•  Ability to legally work in the USA.
•  Forklift experience highly desired

Interns must commit to the entire length of harvest. During the busiest harvest period interns may work 5 or 6 days a week. Outside the busiest harvest period, work may be reduced to 4 or 5 days a week. Compensation is dependent on experience, with overtime based on California law.
