Caldwell Vineyard

We’re looking for a part-time tasting room associate to help with weekend visitors to Caldwell Vineyard, named “Best Wine Cave” and one of “Top 10 Wineries to Visit in Napa.” This is a great entry level position to learn the ropes of providing a luxury tasting room experience. Primarily responsible for supporting our hospitality manager and team, you’ll take care of all aspects of the guest experience.

Every winery has a story. Ours just happens to involve clones, cops and Cabernet. In legendary Napa Valley, John Caldwell is a legend all his own (think rock star of the wine world). The original wine industry maverick and the man responsible for “introducing” (some might call it smuggling) the most prized Bordeaux root stock and grapevine clones to California, John helped revolutionize the foundation of modern winemaking in North America. Just google him. Today, John and Joy Caldwell produce a few dozen clone-specific varietal wines from their 123-acre estate in Napa Valley’s Coombsville appellation.

We’re a bunch of hard-working, loyal, foul-mouthed, fun-loving folks with stunning wines (that sell out within months of release). We’re a get-it-done, take-no-prisoners kinda place.

Are you our kind of people?

We’re looking for a dynamic and meticulous (with a bit of mischief sprinkled in) associate to support our hospitality team and provide a beautiful tasting experience for every guest.


  • Assist tasting room host and estate manager in providing a seamless guest experience in a formal wine tasting setting
  • Execute all duties associated with opening and closing multiple tasting rooms
  • Set up tables, glassware, dishes, napkins, collateral with exacting specifications
  • Break down setups and clean after each tasting experience
  • Take pride in making each tasting experience beautiful
  • Take initiative in identifying ways to improve organization, efficiency, and quality
  • Keep bathrooms clean after each tasting and throughout the day
  • Keep all tasting room areas well-organized, clean, and efficient without explicit direction
  • Occasional order processing
  • Responsibilities encompass two tasting rooms, bathrooms, outdoor spaces, wine storage and kitchen areas.
  • We expect you to approach your responsibilities with the mindset of management, while taking ownership of your tasks and striving for excellence at all touchpoints without direct oversight.


  • Intermediate computer skills
  • Exceptional oral and interpersonal skills
  • Energetic and personable with guests
  • Ability to multitask and prioritize in a fast-paced environment
  • Ability to stand for long periods of time
  • Weekends are a must, but we are able to accommodate some weekends off if you can secure coverage by another team member
