Winery Offers $10,000 A Month Tasting & Talking Gig

Love wine and want to move to Sonoma County, California? Have we got a job for you. The Murphy-Goode Winery is offering a "Really Goode Job" for the right person. They will pay $10,000 a month for a six-month contract that includes private housing in Healdsburg, California. The winery is seeking a web-savvy communicator who wants to learn about viticulture, winemaking, Sonoma County and Murphy-Goode wines and share what they have learned through social media tools such as Facebook, blogs, internet videos and Twitter.

Those in San Francisco can get a jump on the application process on April 28 at 11:30 a.m. at 120 Market Street near the Hyatt Regency. Visitors who arrive at the "A Really Goode Job’s" purple and white kiosk can meet the boss and get a 24-hour head start in the application process by being provided with a code that will give them immediate access to the website which launches on April 29 to the public at large.

The website will have an employment application and will ask applicants to submit a one-minute video. Applications close on June 5, 2009. Murphy-Goode Winery will then select 50 candidates then narrow the list down to the top 10 who will be interviewed from June 27 to July 1. The person chosen for the job will be announced on July 9 and begin work on August 1. As you might expect, all applicants must be at least 21 years old.

    Oh, if only there was an offer like that in the cigar world!

    Hey, I enjoy wine too, and for $10K a month, maybe it’s time to switch passions. LOL
