Tasting Room Sales Associate

Beachaven Vineyards & Winery is in search of Tasting Room Associates. The right candidate for this position will provide an exceptional experience to guests through his or her wine knowledge, excellent customer service and a sales driven attitude.

Our main winery location consists of our production facility along with our tasting bar, gift shop and outdoor picnic area. Tasting Room Associates will be required to provide guided tastings, tours of our property, pour wine by the glass and wine flights, and be able sell bottles and cases of wine. With that said, it is important that our staff is knowledgeable on our products and the history of our winery, which will be part of their staff training. In addition to customer service, the main winery staff is responsible for signing people up for our wine club, packing shipping orders, pick up orders, prepping for wine club releases, unpacking merchandise, prepping for and working special events.
