At Farm Collective, we are a group of passionate wine lovers on a mission to push the envelope and deliver world-class wines to our beloved customers. Our network of family wineries includes T-Vine Winery, James Cole Winery and Tank Garage Winery. We are currently looking to add a few amazing associates to our teams at Tank and T-Vine. While we are primarily in need of part-time associates, we are willing to consider applications from qualified individuals seeking full-time work.
This is role is not for everyone. This job is for dreamers. For people with soul, personality and drive. You will be on the front lines for two of the coolest, most innovative wineries in Napa Valley. Now, we won’t lie to you, selling is very important.

And when you head home, you will feel great about your day. So we’ll ask…are you a dreamer?

- Help with administrative tasks and all that nonsense.
- Get out there and evangelize our brands and build relationships.
