Bjornson Vineyard is looking to hire ambitious, seasonal winemaking employees to help craft our 2022 vintage wines.
Bjornson Vineyard is part of a scenic 107-acre farm, located in the heart of Oregon s Eola-Amity Hills. We are certified Salmon-Safe and sustainable by L.I.V.E. (Low Input Viticulture and Enology). We are committed to generating renewable energy, farming sustainably, and making wine with minimal handling, so that each bottle fully expresses our exceptional terroir.
We have several custom crush clients making their wines here, and as part of our team, you would be helping make their wines as well. This is a unique opportunity to work with many small winemakers, learning about the different stylistic choices one makes, while still being part of one cohesive team. All of our wines are made in small lots with hands-on techniques and attention to detail. This is a great opportunity for inexperienced people to learn, and for experienced workers to enjoy a slower and more thoughtful winemaking season. All employees will be trained and expected to perform all tasks in the winery. You will not be stuck doing only one job all season, and we will not ask you to do anything that we will not do as well. We are committed to fostering a friendly, inclusive, and fun environment that is safe for everyone.
The position starts early September and goes through the end of October. We ask that all employees are committed to work as many days and hours as necessary in that time. Overtime is paid in accordance with Oregon law, and we will try our hardest to give you sufficient days off.
