If you love wine, this is definitely the job of your dreams. The lucky winner will have to move to sunny California, Sonoma County, for a year, but will not have to pay rent there. But what will the worker have to do other than sip wine? During the first few months of work, the tasks are different, in order to allow the new employee to learn more things and to understand which aspects of the winemaking process interest him the most. After this first period, useful for acclimatizing, the employee will work alongside other workers on different tasks: he will learn what it means to work in a vineyard, take care of the cellar and manage e-commerce.
