    -Prior experience in a restaurant with a well-curated list, a retail shop or formal study (i.e. WSET certificate)

    -Solid computer skills – Mac savvy with POS experience

    -Must be able to commit to approx. 36-40 hours per week, including some evenings, weekends, and holidays.

    Note: If you’re only looking for part time work, we may be able to accommodate you as well.

    -Must be able to lift and carry a 40lb case of wine up and down stairs

    -Generous staff discount on wines and spirits
    -Regular in-store tastings
    -Invitations to trade-only, supplier tastings and events
