Vintage Cellar Hand (Wine Jobs: Vineyards & Cellars )


  Blasted Church Vineyards (

  Okanagan Falls, British Columbia

Blasted Church Vineyards is hiring three vintage staff for the 2019 harvest.

We are a mid-sized winery located in Okanagan Falls that from day one, over 17 years ago, has been surrounded by talented staff, and given them the full support, trust, and resources required to perform their very best for the organization. This philosophy has helped us thrive within the industry. Furthermore, the Blasted Church team is one of the most dedicated, empowered, and customer-driven in the business. The very best team you could ever imagine having the privilege to work with.

We crush between 350 and 400 tonnes of fruit – primarily Bordeaux, Burgundy, Rhone, and German varietals from the Okanagan and Similkameen Valleys. Our harvest season usually runs 10 – 14 weeks and typically starts with the sparkling wine harvest in late-August or early-September. In the cellar, we incorporate many different techniques and a lot of experimentation into our work, which is always an exciting experience for everyone on the vintage crew.

Duties during harvest include, but are not limited to:

·         Fruit processing (weighing, sorting, operating/cleaning destemmer and presses).

·         Cleaning tanks and equipment.

·         Monitoring fermentations (Brix and temperature).

·         Racking wine/juice, inoculations.

·         Pump-overs, punch downs, and barrel rolls.

·         Juice/wine additions.

·         Basic lab analysis (Brix, temperature, pH, TA).

·         Vineyard sampling.

·         Barrel work.

Applicants must:

·         Have a valid SIN or work permit number.

·         Be detail driven, energetic, and an efficient team player.

·         Be passionate about wine.

·         Be punctual and reliable.

·         Be able to lift 55 lbs.  

·         Be able to work inside and outside at cooler temperatures. 

·         Be able to work at heights. 

·         Be available for shift work - including weekends and evenings during vintage.  

Having a valid forklift license is an asset, but not a necessity as we are able to provide certification.
