Job Description A little about us-
Océane Vineyards is located on a historic 200 acre property dating back to the revolutionary war in Chester, NY about an hour from New York City. In 2009, we selected a shale and sand soil location and planted 12,000 vines comprising of Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Grigio, Hibernal, Traminette, Chardonnay and Riesling. After over ten years of growing a wide variety of grapes and making many different wine styles, our terroir has proven itself to be a very good for cultivating Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay along with our other varieties.

Where we are going-
We are maintaining our production of estate wine with Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot Grigio. However, we are furthering our exploration into Hibernal and Chardonnay blends along with other very interesting and wonderful wines. In addition, we have acquired Norton vines from the Midwest and plan an experiment planting very close to Dr. Norton’s old home in Richmond. Next years plans would be to establish a second vineyard comprising Norton and other varieties at our 200 acre Elmwood Farm in Louisa, Virginia.

Who we are looking for-
We hope to find a person passionate about wine with the vision and management abilities to grow our wine business. Viticulture and enology knowledge is required along with business acumen. The ability to converse with our French speaking viticulture and enology staff or willingness to learn French would be great!

The benefits of working with us-
We encourage our team members to be self starting and creative to explore and discover new methods and products. The position salary will be $75,000 with an annual review and raise, 401K, health insurance along with potential on site residence.
