Interior Sales Manager (Wine Jobs: Sales & Marketing)

Full Time

  Summerhill Pyramid Winery (http://www.summerhill.bc.ca/)

  Kelowna, British Columbia

ABOUT SUMMERHILL PYRAMID WINERY

We set out to make the most beautiful wines in the world; starting with organically and biodynamically grown grapes from the pristine Okanagan Valley, handling them with love and attention, allowing them to ferment naturally to retain the highest levels of antioxidants, and finishing the wines in our Pyramid Cellar built with precision Sacred Geometry and aligned to the stars to create a structure of stillness and harmony.

Today, the winery is Canada’s only B- Corp winery, producing BC’s only Demeter certified (biodynamic) wines. The Cipes family have worked hard for the B.C. wine community, leading the way in sustainability, winning numerous prestigious International awards. Amid these successes, Summerhill tirelessly dedicate themselves to sustainability, and always look to minimizing their environmental impact and work in harmony with nature. The winery maintains a zero carbon footprint, with a beautiful Organic Bistro on site which is 100% zero-waste, utilizing food scraps in their organic compost.

The Pyramid was born from a concept that originated in Champagne, where wine is disgorged and laid to rest and ‘marry’ with the dosage in Roman-built tunnels underground, where the ambient temperature is low. The entrances are marked by sacred geometry of the Roman Archway. It was based on this sacred geometry that Stephen was inspired to build a pyramid, in an exact 1/8 replica of the Great Pyramid of Egypt, oriented to true north and built from mostly concrete without any magnetic materials.
