Tasting Room Associate (Wine Jobs: Wine Retail & Sommelier)

Part Time

  Day Wines at Day Camp

  Dundee, Oregon

Led by winemaker Brianne Day, we are a natural wine producer in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Brianne crafts wines that are instinctive, restrained and capture a specific time and place. After two years traveling to over 80 wine regions, Brianne cut her teeth working harvest at Brooks, Scott Paul, Willakenzie Estate, Belle Pente & Grochau Cellars in the Willamette Valley, Domaine Huber Verdereau in Volnay, Burgundy; along with stints in New Zealand, and Argentina. Dedicated to site-driven expressions, Brianne seeks out fruit from farmer-owned biodynamic and organic vineyards and crafts wine using minimalist winemaking methods. Between 2012 and 2017, Day Wines grew from 125 cases annually to 6,000. In 2015, Brianne realized her dream of creating an incubator for emerging winemakers by opening a 14,000-square-foot collective winery and tasting room in Dundee, Oregon. She has made a splash on the natural wine scene with her creative and unorthodox wines, while paying homage to the Old World. Brianne was selected as one of the top 40 tastemakers under 40 by Wine Enthusiast Magazine, was one of the few American winemakers at the seminal RAW Wine Fair in London and New York City, and one of seven domestic producers mentioned in the book Natural Wine.
