It’s not always appropriate to guzzle wine during the day – regardless of how heavy your Monday is feeling. But what if there was an opportunity to drink plenty of it, and be paid a handsome salary?

Thanks to the folks over at the Murphy-Goode Winery, there’s a job opening for one lucky wine-lover. Test your might.

For the lucky candidate who ‘takes life one sip at a time’, you’ll join the team in Sonoma County ‘in the idyllic town of Healdsburg’ for one year where you’ll learn all about the wine business, whether it’s the complexities in making it or distribution. You’ll also get 30 cases of booze. The winery has dubbed it the ‘dream job’.

The winery’s website explains, ‘We have a job that will instantaneously catapult you into the wine stratosphere. Have you always wanted to live in breathtaking Sonoma Wine Country… with a $10,000 per month salary, and rent-free for a year?

Looking for a change in your career and to pursue your passion? Do words like Cabernet, Rosé, and Chardonnay just roll off your tongue?’

In order to apply, you have to send in a video explaining to the winery why you’re a ‘really Goode candidate’ for the position. From here applications will be evaluated on ‘role value, creativity, and design, applicable experience and skill set’.

Of course, if you’re interested in the job, it’s incredibly important you love wine.

Anyone aged 21 or over who is authorized to work in the US can apply for the position by uploading a video resume to the website by June 30, with the job said to begin sometime in September.

Before sending in an application for your possible dream job, the posting states applicants must be able to repetitively lift a minimum of 50 lbs. and that the position is overtime-exempt, requiring flexible hours and some weekend work as necessary.

More potential job duties include acquiring knowledge of vineyards and winery operations, and learning about the world of e-commerce.
