Wine Educator

Estate Host

Aperture Cellars and Devil Proof Vineyards, founded in 2009 by winemaker Jesse Katz, champions a range of stunning and highly acclaimed Bordeaux-styled wines from Sonoma County. Recently, our team was awarded the first-ever 100-point wine from the Wine Advocate for Alexander Valley, continuing to set the benchmark for Cabernet and Bordeaux-inspired blends from Sonoma County. Our driven team of enthusiastic professionals operates out of our modern, newly designed hospitality lounge and state-of-the-art winery building on the same estate property in Healdsburg.


Our young, dynamic wine brand is seeking to hire an additional Estate Host to join our motivated hospitality team. Estate Hosts are responsible for efficiently and effectively promoting the sale of wine through customer service, world-class hospitality, and meaningful storytelling. All efforts are focused on creating an elevated wine-focused experience. Estate Hosts work as a part of a dynamic team to create lasting memories and to meet or exceed sales goals.
