AXR Winery

St Helena, CA

Company Background:

AXR is a winery that pays homage to its history and blazes the trail of excitement and innovation in Napa Valley as the pioneers before us did. We want to be reminded every day to live fully and to leave a lasting impression on our layer of history. Named after the AxR rootstock (Aramond x Rupestris) that was so prominent in building the modern California wine industry, AxR#1 eventually succumbed to Phylloxera and most of California wine country was left as a blank canvas. Vintners now had a chance to replant and to rethink the entire structure of the vineyards; attention was paid to the terrior and unique varietals were researched. This was truly a turning point in the wine industry as we know it.

AXR opened its doors on the historic V Madrone property in Saint Helena on January 1, 2017. We are seeking a self-motivated and energetic wine enthusiast with strong customer service and sales skills. The ideal candidate will possess a cheerful and cooperative demeanor, be eager to learn, and be willing to wear many hats. Part Time (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) initially with room for growth. The choice to work for AXR is the choice to be a part of a ground-floor operation with a fast pace, yet intimate customer experience. Be prepared to wear many hats and have fun while doing it!
