Dezel received some news today from a friend in the wine industry that our pal and Tarara’s Wine Sales Manager, John Bellncula and Tarara’s Wine Retail Manager, Elena Henley, are headed north to pursue excellent opportunities in the Green Mountain state of Vermont. For those of you who are familiar with John, you know that as Tarara’s Wine Sales Manager, he could always be found at events, festivals and in the tasting room smiling, welcoming and thanking guests for coming out and trying Tarara’s award winning wines. Every time Vine Spot has visited Tarara or seen them at a festival, John was always present, making us feel at home and informing us of upcoming wine events and the latest news at the winery. Vine Spot will certainly miss John, as he never missed us in all our many visits.
With John and Elena leaving the winery, Tarara Winery is seeking qualified candidates to fill the full time positions of Wine Sales Manager and Wine Retail Manager. The Wine Sales Manager is the senior of the two positions offered and both jobs involve the retail aspects of the wine business, including, but not limited to Tasting Room, Festivals, Concert Series, Catering, Promotions, Marketing and Networking duties, etc. Keep in mind that outside of being full time positions, these positions require working some weekends and the schedule can be pretty aggressive during peak times such as spring and fall seasons.
Dezel spoke with John today and he appeared saddened at leaving the Tarara family, but on the flip side, John has bigger fish to fry and moving up north presents a great opportunity for him and deservingly so. Vine Spot will miss seeing John at Tarara Winery and wish Elena and him the very best in Vermont! John informed Dezel that his last day would be March 23rd, so if readers have an opportunity, stop by Tarara Winery and wish John a happy farewell and the best of luck.
If you are interested in one of the full time job positions, please email resumes or letters of interest to General Manager Margie Russell at firstname.lastname@example.org or fax 703-771-8443.
Happy Sipping !
