Atwater Estate Vineyards is seeking a bartender for our outdoor wine bar. We have a covered bar area and large tent with the beautiful backdrop of Seneca Lake and our vineyard view. We are looking for energetic and outgoing candidates with knowledge and passion for wine as well as an eagerness to learn. This position requires staff members dedicated to providing superlative customer service to engage with and enlighten guests from around the world. Must be of legal drinking age.
Responsibilities and Requirements
We offer a competitive wage plus consumer tips and incentives. If you are excited about this opportunity, we would be happy to review your resume. Please send it along with three references to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are committed to a safe environment for our staff. We conduct temperature screenings, provide face masks, and have social distancing and cleaning procedures in place.
Depending on the grape variety and wine style, we either carefully hand-pick or machine harvest our grapes. In either case, harvest is extremely time sensitive and our quality depends on having control over as many aspects of production as possible. For those times when we machine harvest, having our own harvester allows us to make decisions more quickly and get our fruit in when the conditions are best. Modern machines are very gentle on the fruit and allow us to get it to the press deck while it is still cool in the morning to preserve flavors.
We recently purchased a state-of-the-art harvester. Wes is standing between the legs that go over the vines. Not only is this harvester gentle on the grapes, it comes with several attachments such as a hedger and leaf pulled that will be useful throughout the season, a wire lifter (for shoot positioning), and a prepruner. Typically, these implements are purchased individually, so we are excited to have integrated system.
