Wine company offers $10,000 a month salary plus rent to work in Sonoma
After the somewhat astonishing success of its campaign last year to attract top wine talent to Sonoma County, the Murphy-Goode Wine Company is offering successful applicants a monthly salary of approximately $10,000 plus your covered rent for the dream job this year.
Yes, after receiving some 7,200 applications for its viral “A Really Goode Job” campaign last year, the Murphy-Goode winery is back on the hunt for employees – offering an enviable salary package and benefits.
Once again, successful applicants will become the envy of all, recipients of an intoxicating benefits package including a $10,000 per month salary, rent-free accommodation on the edge of the vineyard for a year in Healdsburg and a year’s supply of Murphy-Goode wine. .
“After receiving an incredible number of applications for last year’s ‘A Really Goode Job’, the decision to replicate it this year was a no-brainer,” said Dave Ready Jr., winemaker at the Murphy-Goode winery.
“We hope to once again see a diverse pool of candidates inside and outside the industry, in our backyard and beyond. Living and working in this beautiful part of the world is a real gift, and we relish the opportunity to share this with someone who is passionate about discovering wine.
Last year, the successful hire spent 90 days shadowing winemaker Dave Ready Jr., before working with the company to establish their chosen path within the wine industry. It looks like Murphy-Goode intends to follow the same formula this time around.
Veronica Hebbard and Lindsay Perry, the two successful candidates from last year’s campaign, will continue to work at the winery once their one-year dream jobs come to an end.
“It’s amazing to be able to develop my passion and expand my knowledge of wine through the hands-on experience of the Murphy-Goode team. I was able to leverage skills from my previous career as an engineer to help Jackson Family Wines launch innovative sustainability initiatives to change the future of wine forever,” Hebbard said. “Without this incredible opportunity, I would never have had the courage to follow my heart and pursue a career not only as a woman in STEM, but also as a woman in wine.”
