Cellar Hand (Wine Jobs: Vineyards & Cellars )

Full Time

  The View Winery (http://theviewwinery.com)

  Kelowna, British Columbia


The View Winery has been family owned for 5 generations. Historically, fresh market apples were grown on the property. In the mid 1990’s a transition began, and vineyards and cider apples were planted. Spartans and McIntosh gave way to Gewürztraminer, Riesling, Ehrenfelser and Pinotage vines as well as cider apples.

In 2006, the family’s beloved old packinghouse built in 1922 was transformed into a winery and cidery.

The View now produces over ten thousand cases each year. Our diverse portfolio of award-winning wines includes Traditional Sparkling, Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Gris, Ehrenfelser, and our signature reds: Pinotage and Pinot Noir. In 2013 we added Canada’s first wine in can with our wildly popular BLING Sparkling Wine.


Our craft cider production is over 26,000 flats and constantly evolving to develop innovative and exciting new products. All hand crafted by our own team from estate grown apples.



We love what we do. We’re all in. It’s how we have accomplished great things. Like our amazing products and our brand, we want to tell you the exciting story of our winery, its growth, its history, and our people. We’re on an exciting adventure and we want you to be at the forefront with us. We are building an exciting future in the wine and cider industry, and we’ve only just begun.
