Longoria Wines is looking for part-time tasting room associates for our Lompoc and upcoming Santa Barbara tasting rooms. Our winemaking philosophy is centered around sourcing from top vineyards across the Santa Ynez Valley to create exquisite, small-lot wines that most often express a single varietal from a single locale. As the winery celebrates its 40th year, we are looking to add associates to our hospitality team who are devoted to providing our guests with an elevated, personal, and memorable experience with each tasting.

 

Responsibilities (including but not limited to):

Provide guests with an elevated wine tasting experience–meaningful and personal interactions are just as important as presenting the details of each wine along with educating guests on the history and general winemaking philosophy of the winery

Promote and sell wine and wine club offerings to achieve sales goals

Accurately and carefully operate the POS system/handle cash

Participate in team meetings, educational tastings, and other company events

 

Requirements:

Minimum 21 years of age

Flexibility to work at the Lompoc and Santa Barbara tasting rooms as needed

Knowledge of wine is preferred but not required; a strong desire to learn about wine and the Santa Ynez Valley is paramount

Ability to multitask and attend to several guests without sacrificing the quality of experience

Positive, self-starter attitude, dynamic and adaptable to new challenges with excellent verbal and interpersonal communication skills

Ability to repeatedly lift over 40 pounds and be on your feet for long periods

Availability to work 20-25 hours/week, and work weekends and holidays

 

Compensation

Hourly including tips

Commission and bonuses offered for strong sales performance
