Swedish Hill, one of the FLX region’s most progressive winegrowing and winemaking operations, has openings for Interns in 2022.   The Vineyard internship is from mid-May through mid-August, the Winery Internship mid-August through mid-November.

Vineyard Intern responsibilities include working in all phases of our vineyard operation with many different varieties.   This is a “hand on” approach to learning most of the major growing season operations in a commercial vineyard.  Work will include trellising and training , as well as shoot thinning, shoot positioning, crop control, pest management, row middle management.  Vinifera, Hybrid and American varieties are included in our diverse operation.

Winery interns will be involved in all phases of the pressing and fermentation activities, as well as laboratory analyses.  This will also include yeast inoculation, racking, filtration, bottling and sanitation experiences.

Our winegrowing operations are located on Cayuga Lake on 3 vineyard properties, all within 45 minutes or less of Ithaca, or 20 minutes from Geneva.  Preference will be given to students in Viticulture and Enology, although any students in plant science or related fields are encouraged to apply.  Ideally, the same student could do the Viticulture Internship in the Summer and the Winery Internship in the Fall.
