Sonoma County Winery Launches National Job Search Offering  Candidates the Opportunity to Land Their Dream Job in Sonoma County,  $10,000 Per Month and Rent-Free Living for One Year 

Do you love wine? Have you dreamt of spending  your days in the sun-drenched vineyards of California’s wine country? If so, Murphy-Goode,  pioneers of serious wine and serious fun, wants to hear from you. Today, the winery announced  the launch of “A Really Goode Job,” a four-month-long nationwide search for one person to live  out their ultimate dream job in wine country, starting August 2021. The job comes with a $10,000  per month salary, rent-free living for a year in the charming town of Healdsburg, one of Sonoma  County’s premier destinations, and a year’s supply of Murphy-Goode wine.  

First launched in 2009, “A Really Goode Job” became a revolutionary campaign to create a real  job opportunity in the wine industry at a time of economic distress and high unemployment. The  original campaign’s goal was to chronicle a year of living and working at Murphy-Goode through  social media – a new business area for many wineries at the time. Today, as the world faces a  new set of challenges, creating access and viable career opportunities is more important than  ever. With that in mind, the winery revived the campaign, but this time around, they are asking  candidates to pitch their ultimate dream job. Murphy-Goode is casting the net wide and seeking  candidates from across America and Canada, who want to follow their passion and land their  dream job in the wine industry.  

“We’re proud to bring back this impactful campaign amid a difficult year for many,” said Rick  Tigner, CEO of Jackson Family Wines, the family-owned wine company that includes Murphy Goode. “Living and working in this beautiful part of the world is a true gift, and we relish the  opportunity to share that with someone who is passionate about breaking into wine. We hope to  hear from a variety of candidates inside and outside the industry; in our backyard and beyond.” 

To apply, contestants must create a short video explaining their ideal role in the wine industry and  what they would bring to Murphy-Goode, then upload it to the official campaign website. The  winner will be selected and announced in July 2021. Once selected, the winner will begin their 

year-long adventure with Murphy-Goode, first by shadowing rock-star winemaker Dave Ready,  Jr., exploring the ins and outs of harvest in Sonoma County. Inspired by their application, Murphy Goode will then work with the winner to identify their passion and create the ideal role at the  winery for the remainder of the year, and hopefully beyond.

This contest is open to anyone over the age of 21 in the U.S. and to those  in Canada authorized to work in the U.S.
