Full Job Description
The Double Trouble Wine Room is the fun, casual, and busy home of two high-end, artisan micro-wineries, Pagter Brothers Winery and Hoi Polloi Winery. Located on Main St in Old Town Newhall, we are looking for a team member to work in the tasting room. We anticipate that this position will require approximately 12 hours per week to begin, though this could increase during busy times and as we potentially increase our operating hours. Our tasting room is open Thursday and Friday evenings 5 to 10:00, Saturday from Noon to 10:00pm and Sunday from Noon to 6:00 – availability those days is a requirement. Compensation is commensurate with experience and will be hourly to start. Our model is closer to a wine bar than a typical wine country tasting room. Our guests stay for a time and can order glasses and bottles as well as tasting flights (the wines in which will need to be explained and described to the guest). Tips are significant, and are pooled among our small staff.
We have a large number of wine club members and regulars, and feature live music most Fridays and Saturday evenings.
Bar or restaurant service experience would be great. Knowledge of Central Coast wines and wineries is helpful, but some general wine knowledge and a willingness to learn about our wines may be sufficient.
Any candidate will need to:
– Be friendly and accommodating to our guests. A sense of humor is essential in our place.
– Communicate about our wines to guests.
– Promote and sell wine club memberships.
– Master our POS system (OrderPort) and work comfortably on the computer/iPad to process orders, payments and wine club sign-ups.
– Maintain an organized and clean tasting room.
– Have a willingness to do whatever is needed to keep the place operating smoothly, cleanly, and efficiently. An ability to see what needs to be done and take a “Do-It-Yourself-Without-Needing-To-Be-Told” approach is very important.
