Port Townsend Vineyards is looking for an experienced hospitality or customer service professional to work in our tasting rooms and at our events. Strong experience in wine sales or service is a significant advantage. This is an opportunity for the right person to join an exciting and growing local business.
The candidate must have a passion for wine and for learning the details of the wines we produce and our general operations. Responsibilities include: Greeting customers promptly and courteously; guiding customers to wines they enjoy; setting up and cleaning up daily operations and special events; stocking wine and retail merchandise in the tasting room; accurately performing daily wine inventory and money handling procedures; promoting the sale of wine and non-wine products sold in the Tasting Room; describing wines, winemaking techniques, winery history and providing general tourist information.
While the historical restoration of the Water St Wine Bar building continues, we're taking the opportunity to open a tasting room in the heart of downtown Port Townsend on Taylor Street.
Opening this summer, this space will give guests the chance to taste our wines and learn about our project, or just enjoy a glass of wine before dinner or a film, or as a break from shopping.
Casual and connected, this completely restored 1885 building will be a wine immersion experience for locals and visitors. Likely the most widely anticipated opening in the Port Townsend Vineyards collection, Water Street Wine Bar will delight guests with on-the-water views and a commercial kitchen for guest chef events. The two-story brick building will bring with it a regional food pairingexperience, tasting counter, and a variety of seating configurations to support large and small group activities and events. The wine bar will be the primary retailer of Port Townsend Vineyards products.
For a time, the C.F. Clapp Building was a pre-Prohibition saloon in the late 1800s and early 1900s. It then transformed into an athletic club in the 1930s and hosted many wrestling and boxing matches.
