Looking for a job in the wine industry? A job fair is being held today, Sunday, April 10 at the Naramata Centre with a host of South Okanagan wineries looking to fill positions from tasting room associates, vineyard workers, tour guides, servers and more.

The job fair goes from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

If you want work in the vineyard, several wineries are hiring for cellar hands and vineyard labour including planting, weed control, irrigation installation, leaf and shoot thinning. Pay is usually around $18 to $20 p/hr.

Beside meeting prospective employers, you also have the chance to join three different mini breakout sessions.
