We are a trendy, vibrant, international award-winning, destination winery in Lake Country. We boast epic views of Lake Okanagan from our 10,000 square foot, gravity-fed, Pinot Noir facility and tasting room.
We're now hiring Tasting Room Associates who share 50th's passion for Pinot, People and our Place! We're looking for like-minded people who are positive, bold, energetic, social and professional.

Successful applicants are expected to practice good personal hygiene and be well-dressed. The tasting room is a sensory environment, therefore, we require that there are no scents or smells, including smoke, on anyone's person during work hours. Working with 50th Parallel Estate means that you are an ambassador of the winery, inside the tasting room and out!
Giving guests an experience that exceeds their expectations is something 50th Parallel prides ourselves on. We're looking for people who love giving extraordinary service that's kind and respectful to everyone. We're focused on building loyal relationships that will increase wine and wine club sales, while educating our guests about our property. This is a seasonal, part time position, with busy fast-paced times occurring on weekends. You must be comfortable engaging small to large groups effectively and efficiently. Associates are required to stand for extended periods, while bending and lifting up to 40 lbs. You will be responsible for opening and closing the tasting room in addition to handling cash and giving correct change.
