Harvest Cellar Assistant

Robert Biale Vineyards, a Napa Valley old vine Zinfandel and Petite Sirah specialist, is seeking some hard working and passionate folks to assist our production team for the 2024 harvest.

Please check out our website to learn more about these amazing sites – Monte Rosso, Stagecoach, R.W. Moore, Palisades, Pagani Ranch, Morisoli to name a few. Just to keep things interesting, along with Zinfandel and Petite Sirah, we also work with small amounts of Barbera, Sangiovese, Syrah, Abouriou, Alicante Bouschet, and Greco.

The position consists of all things harvest. Some tasks include vineyard sample processing, fruit processing, barrel washing/steaming, punch downs and pump overs, additions, topping, pressing, barrel filling, and, of course, cleaning. Our goal is to give everyone a well-rounded and hands-on view of all that goes into making outstanding wines. We are a small team so you will work alongside our full-time staff and become very familiar with every aspect of our process. We welcome and are happy to answer questions as they arise and strive for a collaborative environment.
