City Winery, a company with urban wineries in 6 eastern cities, is recruiting a seasonal Oregon vineyard liaison for 2019. This position is ideally suited to a current viticulture student or recent graduate. You will be working with an Oregon wine and vineyard professional with 25 years experience. This is a part-time seasonal position.
Duties include monthly visits to City Winery’s 3 partner vineyards in the Willamette Valley, crop sampling & assessment, grower relations, monthly written reports to City Winery management, and harvest organization in the autumn. This last component is the most demanding. City Winery harvests into FYBs (small perforated stacking bins), chills the crop at a facility in Yamhill county, then loads and dispatches the crop via refrigerated rail containers or trucks to the east coast.
The job is expected to require 2-4 days per month during August and September and then an intense week or two of work during the October/November harvest managing the logistics of receiving FYBs shipped from California, distributing them to each of our 3 vineyards, being present at each location during the pick, and finally overseeing the safe transport, chilling and shipment of the crop.
Compensation is $15/hour. Total hours may range between 80-200 hours over three months based on the contract tonnage we expect and the particular challenges of this harvest. Personal vehicle mileage is reimbursed at the current IRS rate with written documentation. You must submit proper mileage logs for reimbursement.
To reiterate: this is a part-time seasonal position as an independent contractor. You will be responsible for taxes and must invoice City Winery for services rendered. The right candidate may be considered for promotion in 2020 if they prove exceptional this season and with the recommendation of our current senior vineyard liaison.
Please contact me with any questions or to schedule a preliminary phone interview. Thank you.
