to Vintage Cellar Hand Ste. Michelle Wine Estates | Portland, OR, Supervisor of red press for draining and pressing tanks. In addition, led the draining of stainless steel open top fermenters, T-Bins, and Mini Bins with a torpedo before dumping into the press. At this point an excellent forklift driver.
to Vintage Cellar Hand Ste. Michelle Wine Estates | Sonoma, CA, Had two facilities a bike ride away from one an other on one property in two AVA's, right on the border of Oakville and Rutherford in Napa Valley. Spent most of my time on the four white presses dumping bins and making sure logistics to the tanks were correct, clean, and ready to go. Learned how smoke effects grapes and wine and countermeasures against it. Lots of work with an optical sorter and the dumping of expensive fruit, up to $13,000 a tonne.
to Vintage Cellar Hand Moshin Vineyards | City, STATE, After conquering this experience I finally understand gravity flow winemaking and appreciate the natural approach. Using as few machines as possible we created a unique esoteric composition, focusing on our best Russian River fruit. The only machines these grapes went through were the auger, the sorting table, and the destemmer; we then bin dumped into tanks, creating a truly natural wine. I’m proud our wines are regarded as Russian River benchmarks.
to Assistant Winemaker RR Bulk Winery | City, STATE, This task was intense, I was working with four other assistant winemakers, and controlling 100 tanks from pump overs to assemblage. Tasting wines with the winemaker to decipher what needed to be added was an interesting experience in this quantity ( 90,000,000 liters ). Typical Flotation duties included figuring out how much enzyme and gelatin was needed, and overseeing the whole process was a daunting but crucial task. I spearheaded control of the thermal presses and thermal vinification, making sure everything was done in a correct and orderly fashion.
to Assistant Winemaker Durst | City, STATE,

Worked in all aspects of wine making from cellar management and enology to viticulture. This region introduced me to ‘secrets’ in what is is to be a winemaker - these guys do everything. I will never forget it.

to Vintage Cellar Hand Ravenswood Winery | City, STATE,

Main objective was managing Bentonite and TA. As well as the daily coordination of mechanical punch downs, removal and pressing of red grape skins, transferring wine, racking, along with barreling down. I received my forklift certification, organized bins and moved whatever they told me to; was also responsible for operating a dump truck.

to Vintage Cellar Hand Kim Crawford | City, STATE,

I was positioned as a red wine team member - My daily responsibilities consisted of plunging twice a day, racking, making millions of additions (yeast, bentonite, and TA), doing dig-outs followed by pressing. Repetitive, but New Zealand was an eye opening experience. 

to Vintage Cellar Hand Imagery Estate Winery | City, STATE,

Harvest cellar duties, the same as we all have done: sanitizing tanks, receiving grapes, making additions (yeast, nutrients, bentonite, and TA), racking, filling, stirring, gassing, and cleaning barrels, pump overs and plunging, digouts, shipping wine, and bottling line.

to Tasting Room Associate/ Bottling line/ Bar back Benziger Family Winery | City, STATE,

As a tasting room associate, I poured wine to customers and ensured that they had a hospitable tasting experience, ultimately selling as much wine as possible. I also worked on the bottling line and enjoyed coordinating the Partners Tour in the cave three times a day.
