Job Type: Seasonal (ASAP - October, 2021)

Our Culinary Philosophy
At Mission Hill Family Estate, our culinary program is dedicated to the sourcing and promotion of local, sustainable, seasonal food. Our Cuisine du Terroir approach lends itself to a light-handed manner of preparation that respects the character of the ingredient and from where it is sourced. Our varietal and herb gardens are steps away from our kitchens, and we educate and encourage our team members to explore foraging opportunities that lay at our doorstep.

From farm tours to food and wine tastings, we strive to ensure our team acquires the knowledge and appreciation of the valley and the winery needed to surpass our guests’ expectations. Each team member will have the opportunity to hone their culinary skills and develop professional relationships that will last a lifetime while working with our accomplished and celebrated culinary team.
