Cellar Assistants

Oliver, BC, Canada Full Time

Tinhorn Creek Vineyards in Oliver, BC is one of the Okanagan’s most innovative and environmentally sustainable estate wineries with an extensive health and safety program. We are a 450 tonne winery in the heart of the South Okanagan wine region, with vineyards on both the Golden Mile Bench and the Black Sage Bench. We produce roughly 50:50 white and red, and our two unique vineyard sites allow us to grow both Bordeaux and Burgundy varietals in addition to a dash of Syrah and Gewurztraminer. We employ a basic and natural wine making approach and have a small but skilled team you would enjoy working with.

Depending on candidate’s qualifications and experience, there is a possible research assistant component - chemical analysis, journal style report writing and basic understanding of scientific methods would be an asset. This is a great opportunity for a new graduate to gain some non-harvest cellar experience, be a part of an energetic team and learn about wines and wine making in the beautiful South Okanagan.

  • College or degree in Oenology with experience of at least one vintage
