Internships / SSCC Partnership

In an effort to better serve our members, Family Wineries of Washington State is in the process of developing an internship program which will serve the needs of small wineries as well as the needs of students in the industry. In the weeks to follow we will be sending a brief survey in order to determine where your needs are most heavily concentrated. Your suggestions and feedback are important to our mission, so please feel free to write independently of the survey if you have anything you would like to input.

It is our pleasure to announce our first partnership with South Seattle Community College and the Northwest Wine Academy. Although young, the program is highly respected in the industry for producing talented graduates. Interns are available to assist you in all aspects of your business including the following:
  • Marketing and Sales
  • Tasting Room Operations
  • Reporting Functions
  • Cellar Operations
  • Chemistry Services
  • Bottling / Labeling
  • Harvest Production
Our long-term vision for partnerships also include collaboration on:
  • Class guest speakers
  • Class projects
  • Field trips
  • Student volunteer work
Thank you for continuing to support Family Wineries of Washington State. You will be kept up-to-date on progress concerning this and future partnerships with other Washington state wine programs. We look forward to hearing from you!
