Summer Hospitality Host / Hostess Position

White Pine Winery 317 State Street

St. Joseph, MI 49085

We have an opening for a Hospitality Host / Hostess (HH) position at White Pine Winery’s tasting room in downtown St. Joseph, MI for the summer of 2014. This is an excellent opportunity for someone in school who is on summer break to work in Southwest Michigan’s vibrant and growing wine industry. The position offers a fantastic opportunity to learn about wine from some of the region’s most experienced people and share that knowledge with customers from all walks of life

This position is part time and seasonal beginning in mid-May and ending after Labor Day weekend. This is a retail position so most of the scheduled time is on weekends including holidays.

The HH is White Pine’s representative to our retail customers and is therefore responsible for selling White Pine wines with a positive attitude and gracious demeanor. The HH may be required to work at some wine events away from the tasting room.

Requirements include but not limited to:

  • Must be 21 years of age.
