As we enter the busy bottling season, our wineries are searching for on-call staff to assist with wine bottling runs. A single winery may only run 1-2 days per week, however, with our collective of wineries that we service, it is more probable for you to have full-time placement during the busy season.
If you want to work in a fun, fast-paced environment, then winery work is perfect! Enjoy the majestic views at beautiful Niagara winery locations while learning new skills in wine bottling.
Various wineries in the Niagara Region, from Niagara-on-the-Lake to Grimsby, require extra hands during their peak bottling seasons. These shifts are often booked several days in advance, but could be on-call to fill unexpected spaces as well. Individuals will work at various rotating positions on the bottling line.
Shifts generally run until the day's production is complete (no set end time). This position usually starts part-time, (2-3 shifts per week), but during peak seasons could run 5-6 days.
