HEALDSBURG, Calif. — A Sonoma County winery is offering the job of a lifetime for anyone who has a passion for all things wine!
Over the next 14 weeks, the Murphy-Goode Winery is accepting video applications for a live-in position at the winery, rent-free for a year, along with 30 cases of wine and a monthly salary of $10,000.
According to the posting, the person chosen for the position will spend their first 90 days on the job “shadowing winemaker Dave Ready Jr. and exploring all aspects of the harvest.”
“From there, we will work with you and your passions to help you choose your path in the wine business,” the winery posted on its website.
All video applications must be submitted by June 30, 2021. Applicants must be at least 21 years old, a legal US resident, and authorized to work in the country. According to the job posting, applicants will be evaluated on role value, creativity, and design, applicable experience, and skill set.
"2020 was a difficult year for so many people. Back in 2009 when we first launched this campaign the goal was to create a real job opportunity in the wine industry at a time of economic distress and high unemployment," said Murphy-Goode winemaker Dave Ready, Jr. "This is an opportunity for applicants to choose their own adventure at our winery and tell us what they're most passionate about, whether it's hospitality, finance, social media, winemaking, or something else. This is a real opportunity for someone to start or pivot their career."
“To apply for your Murphy-Goode dream job all you need to do is pull out your camera and show us why you are a really Goode candidate (creativity and humor a plus),” the website reads.
The position is overtime-exempt and requires the availability to work flexible hours and weekends on occasion. Applicants must also be able to lift a minimum of 50 pounds.
