Biodynamic Farm/Cellar Hand

Website Littorai Wines

Biodynamic Farm & Winery

This is a position that wears many hats. Your responsibilities will include maintaining both vegetable and companion gardens with native California plants. Garden work will include harvesting, launching starts in the greenhouse, irrigation maintenance, planting in the ground, applying teas and general care. You will also be assisting in the management of the 30+ Shetland Sheep, chickens, guard dog, and 4 Dexter Cattle on the property.

Main duties will be making sure they have food, shelter, and water while rotating them around the property with temporary electric fences. During harvest when most of the crew bears down on the vineyards and in the cellar, you will make sure the garden and animals on the property are well cared for. You will also spend time working in some of the best vineyards on the Sonoma Coast doing canopy management, fruit sampling, crop drops, and more. Spanish is a huge asset in this position as you will be working closely with a fantastic group of Spanish speakers.

During the peak of harvest you will occasionally be pulled into the winery to help with the various fermentations. An interest in winemaking is beneficial but not required. At the end of harvest we will make all of the biodynamic preparations and build two 10’x100′ long lasagna style compost piles made almost entirely of inputs from the farm. Position will begin in July or Early August and run until end of November.
