Cellar Hand (Wine Jobs: Vineyards & Cellars )

Full Time

  Union Wine Co.

  Sherwood, Oregon

Union Wine Company is looking for a full-time cellarhand to join our ranks. 

We are situated between Portland and the Willamette Valley wine country in a warehouse-winery affectionately know as the Industrial Chateau. Founded in 2005, Union Wine Company attempts to embrace the artistry of making great wine, minus all the fuss. Union cares more about what goes into the bottle than what kind of bottle (or can) it is. Our winery has experienced (and continues to experience) rapid growth and has quickly become one of the largest wineries in Oregon. While most of this growth has come in the form of the brand Underwood, our other brands continue to remain in focus. These include Kings Ridge, Christopher Michael, Alchemist, and Amity Vineyards. The diversity of brands allows us the enjoyment and variety of working at both a large scale (at least by Oregon standards) and small scale with some of our favorite vineyards in the Valley.
