Harvest Enologist (Wine Jobs: Vineyards & Cellars )


  Joel Gott Wines

  St. Helena, California

Joel Gott Wines is looking for an intern to assist our North Coast winemaking team for the 2023 harvest beginning in mid to late August.

However, it requires the knowledge of cellar and winemaking practices to effectively communicate harvest operations to our team. This role will require travel between our north coast winery sites located in St. Helena, Lodi, and Carneros. We are looking for someone with great organization and time management skills who can thrive in a fast-paced environment.

•  Monitor fermentations, collect tank samples, check Brix and temperatures
•  Prepare fermentation samples for tasting
•  Act as communication liaison between custom crush supervisors and Joel Gott winemaking team
•  Verify work orders and winemaking protocols are followed correctly
•  Assist in vineyard sampling as needed
•  Set up laboratory trials and tastings
•  Enter analysis results in winemaking database and Excel spreadsheets
•  Distribute samples and products between facilities as needed
•  Maintain a clean and organized work environment

•  B.S. in Viticulture & Enology or similar Science field preferred (or in the process of obtaining a degree)
•  Previous lab/harvest experience, familiarity and experience with winemaking practices
•  Excellent communication skills, both verbal and written
•  Skilled in time management and handling daily deadline pressures
•  Good observation and analytical skills, proficient in MS Excel
