Full Time

  City Wine Tours

  Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

City Wine Tours needs some smart, funny, wine-loving folks to join our quickly growing team! We've been hosting walking wine tours in Boston and New York neighborhoods for the past 8 years. Now we're opening in Philadelphia. What's a walking wine tour? Look us up:

We need "Wine Ambassadors" (tour guides) in Philly. We're scheduling walking wine tours in 3 different historic upscale Philly neighborhoods (Old City, Midtown Village, and Fishtown). Each tour is a group of up to 12 guests who you'll lead on a visit to 2 wine destinations (restaurants). Over the course of 2 hours, the group will sample 6 different wines, nibble on some yummy appetizers, and listen to you talk about to taste, how to buy, how to pair with food, how wine is made, and how to enjoy good wine. 

This is a part-time job, but a great, long-term part-time job. The wine tour guides on our staff have been with us a while. They're people who've worked in wine retail, wine sales, restaurant beverage management, tasting rooms, and wine education. Our most successful guides usually have some WSET certification, National Wine School training, or just have a gang of wine knowledge. 

You MUST be available to work on Saturday afternoons from 2:00 - 6:00 p.m., because that's when we run our tours! You'll make $100 per tour, plus tips (which can vary from $0 to $100+ per tour, depending on how much your group likes you and how generous they're feeling). I don't expect you to work every weekend, but most guides work 2 - 6 tours a month.

Basically, you're teaching Wine 101, spread over 2 hours, while you visit 2 cool restaurants in a particular neighborhood. The 2 restaurants will be a 5-10 minute walk from one spot to the next. So, you're spending about 45 minutes at each restaurant, serving and discussing 3 wines per stop.

Are you a wine snob? We don't want you. 

Are you opinionated? Great, as long as you can validate an aspiring foodie/beginning wine drinker's perspective, too. We want people who agree that learning about wine should be as much fun as drinking it. Do you enjoy talking about your passion? 

I'm searching for charismatic, friendly wine enthusiasts to serve as wine ambassadors leading tours and tastings in Philadelphia's greatest neighborhoods. You bring the wine knowledge and I'll provide you with the training you need to give great tours! We look forward to meeting you. We're ready to start running tours in April 2019. Apply today!
