Siduri Wines is looking for Harvest Seasonal Cellar Workers for the upcoming 2019 harvest season. We are a small winery, located in Santa Rosa, California, specializing in high-end Pinot Noir. Siduri sources premium fruit ranging from appellations like Santa Rita Hills and Santa Lucia highlands all the way up to Northern California’s Anderson Valley, along with many vineyards from here in the Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast region. We also work with small amounts of Zinfandel, Syrah, and Chardonnay. We are a tight-knit and efficient crew, and we’re looking for people who enjoy working in a fast-paced, demanding environment, dealing with all aspects of the winemaking process.
Duties include sanitizing tools and equipment, sorting and processing grapes, punchdowns, pumpovers, winemaking additions, tank dig-outs, pressing, barrel downs, bulk transfers, and pretty much everything else in between. We expect applicants to be able to follow directions from the Winemaker and Cellarmaster, as well as written instructions. Applicants must be punctual and professional. Also, candidates should be detail-oriented, have a sense of urgency, and a positive attitude.
We generally work 10-hour days once harvest gets rolling with one set day off per week. The job generally lasts 10 - 12 weeks, starting in mid-August and running through November. Pay is competitive.
Last things: applicants need to be 21 years old at the time of employment, and need to be able to pass a drug test. Even though marijuana is legal in California now, our parent company, Jackson Family Wines, continues to adhere to Federal drug policy guidelines.
