California Winery Will Pay You $10,000 A Month To Work And Live At Its Vineyard

If you love nothing more than sitting down in the summer sun with a glass of wine, you’ve probably thought that it would be absolute paradise to live near a vineyard so that could be your life every day. Well, one California winery is looking not only to hire someone to come live in beautiful Sonoma Wine Country, but they’ll also pay you $10,000 a month and give you a year’s worth of wine for joining the company. Talk about a dream job!

  1. The job offer comes from Murphy-Goode Winery. The winery is looking for only one lucky candidate to live rent-free, get paid a six-figure salary, and drink copious amounts of wine as part of their company. You’ll also get plenty of knowledge and experience along the way, so it really is a win-win situation.
  2. The lucky candidate should take life “one sip at a time.” As the job description on the company’s website states, they’re looking to relocate the new team member to “the idyllic town of Healdsburg” and teach them all about the wine business. “We have a job that will instantaneously catapult you into the wine stratosphere. Have you always wanted to live in breathtaking Sonoma Wine Country… with a $10,000 per month salary, and rent-free for a year? Looking for a change in your career and to pursue your passion? Do words like Cabernet, Rosé, and Chardonnay just roll off your tongue?” the listing states.
  3. Of course, it isn’t all fun and games. This is a job, after all, so you will be expected to learn the ins and outs of the business and pull your weight. In addition to shadowing winemaker Dave Ready Jr., the lucky candidate will “acquire strong knowledge of vineyards, winery operations, and wine in general” and contributing to the “growing and dynamic world of e-commerce” by helping to promote Murphy-Goode and forming relationships with the hospitality and trade industry.
  4. Applying is straightforward but detailed. If you think you’d be a good fit for the winery job, you’ll need to submit a video explaining why. While extensive experience in the industry isn’t strictly necessary, candidates will be assessed based on “role value, creativity, and design, applicable experience and skill set.” You’ll need to be 21 and a US resident as well with authorization to work. If that sounds like you, head over to the website to apply and good luck!
