Keuka Lake Vineyards in Hammondsport, NY is looking for a paid harvest intern to join our team August through the mid to end of November with potential for a permanent position for the right candidate. We are a small winery with estate vineyards on both sides of Keuka Lake.

You will work long hours, be on your feet for long periods of times and likely work 6-7 days per week during peak periods of harvest. Tasks will include, but are not limited to sampling vineyards for harvest assessment, harvesting and sorting fruit in the vineyard, crush pad (crushing/pressing/etc), racking, inoculations, punch downs, fermentation checks, basic lab analysis and most important of all, Cleaning, Cleaning, Cleaning!

We have minimalist approach to winemaking, really letting the grapes speak, but are not averse to using the Winemakers tool box when needed. It is about making well balanced, delicious wines that really demonstrate our different terroir.

We are known for our Estate Riesling’s, as much of the Finger Lakes are, but are also making some really fun and different wines using hybrid varietals that grow on our Eastside vineyard. Dry to Semi-dry wines, we produce classic style, skin ferment, pet nat’s, rose and a few reds.

You will work along-side the Winemaker. It is a very hands on position that can be fun and educational if you don’t mind getting your hands dirty. If you are passionate about wine, don’t mind long days, loud music, please send along a resume and note about why you could make a good addition to the KLV team.

Compensation: TBD, potential housing available
