Cellar Assistant

Tinhorn Creek Vineyards in Oliver, BC is one of the Okanagan’s most innovative and environmentally sustainable estate wineries with an extensive health and safety program. We are a 450 tonne winery in the heart of the South Okanagan wine region, with vineyards on both the Golden Mile Bench and the Black Sage Bench. We produce roughly 50:50 white and red, and our two unique vineyard sites allow us to grow both Bordeaux and Burgundy varietals in addition to a dash of Syrah and Gewurztraminer.  We employ a basic and natural wine making approach and have a small but skilled team you would enjoy working with.

We are looking for a Cellar Assistant for a 3 month contract position from April to June 2018. This position encompasses all activities of working in winery production areas.  Depending on candidate’s qualifications and experience, there is a possible research assistant component - chemical analysis, journal style report writing and basic understanding of scientific methods would be an asset. This is a great opportunity for a new graduate to gain some non-harvest cellar experience, be a part of an energetic team and learn about wines and wine making in the beautiful South Okanagan.

Compensation: Rate based on experience.

Requirements of the position:

  • College or degree in Oenology with experience of at least one vintage
  • High degree of organisational skills and attention to detail
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Demonstrated history and willingness to work cooperatively with a team
