    I worked at Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This internship offered me a chance to see all aspects of harvest work. Vineyard sampling allowed me to see the importance of walking the vines and assessing the crop. It was very exciting to see decisions being made based upon the samples that we took. Cellar work showed another important side of harvest, and allowed me to realize the importance of task management during inoculations and additions. I loved how active and engaging this side of the job was. Finally, laboratory analysis was interspersed and provided excellent practice for the most common titrations and tests performed on juices and wines. Doing all of these things at once helped tie it all together!

    Cons

    As an intern, you work under many different "managers" as you move from task to task. It can take time to realize their different styles and expectations.

    Advice to Management

    It may be helpful to conduct exit interviews to fully assess how an intern felt that their experience went. Glassdoor may actually help with this assessment! Overall, it was a great harvest experience for me!

    Stop giving bonuses to those that dont deserve it.

    I have been working at Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, get to make great wines. Lots of old-timers who have worked there for many years. All of the employees in production are nice and everyone works hard. Many workers in production have been there for 20 years.

    Cons

    As with any winery production environment, if you want to move up, you need to move on to a different company. Perhaps if you want to work there 10+ years there might be room for growth, but there still would be no guarantee for promotion.
