Gervasi Vineyard Shopping Cart

Join our Grape Harvest Team!

Due to the overwhelming response, we are no longer taking applications at this time.

Overview

  • We expect three to five harvest dates spread over the first three weeks of September.
  • Emails with more information will be sent to the Harvest Team 1-3 days in advance of a harvest date. Respond if you can help.
  • Once each pick day is set, another email with some specifics about that particular day will be sent (where to meet specifically, grape varietal, etc.).
  • Picking dates are weather dependent. If we encounter predicted storms on a harvest date then we will reschedule for the next clear day.
  • Pizza lunch, water, pruners, nitrile gloves, sanitizer, and handwashing stations will be provided. If you have dietary restrictions, please bring your own lunch.
  • You must be 18 years or older to participate alone or age 15-17 with a parent.

Compensation

  • Hours will be tracked each shift and payment will be issued after the final harvest for all hours worked.
  • Harvest Workers will be paid $12 per hour and because the total amount is expected to be below $600, no 1099 will be required.

Physical Requirements

  • Requires the ability to stand on your feet for several hours straight, occasional bending/stooping, and occasionally lifting 20lbs in outdoor environment.

General Instructions

  • Assemble in the vineyard at 7AM. There will be a short required agricultural safety instructional time. Most picking days end by mid-afternoon.  Shorter work shifts can be accommodated.
  • Double check the forecast temperatures for the day.
  • You are encouraged to wear long sleeves and a hat for sun protection.  Use sunscreen if you need.
  • Please bring your own mask to wear if you choose, we will be outside for the duration of the harvest day.
  • Wear ‘Closed Toe’ shoes.
  • Use insect repellent if you like in case of pesky morning insects.
