Could you see your future in grapes? Wine is an $88 billion industry in the U.S., with American consumers drinking about 4.4 billion bottles of wine in a year. That's a lot of grapes! It's also a lot of work—and workers—to get those grapes from the vineyard to the dinner table. Wine jobs include vineyard workers, jobs in winemaking operations, wine salespeople, winery staff, wine store employees, and wine servers in restaurants. These wine-related businesses also need accountants, marketing specialists, purchasing agents, and a host of other jobs that support the wine industry.
Any of these wine jobs might be appealing if you're a wine connoisseur. If you're not familiar with wine, learning about it can be challenging, but it can also be fun. There are thousands of wines in many categories like chardonnay, merlot, and burgundy. The ultimate wine expert is known as a sommelier. Restaurants, especially high-end establishments, employ sommeliers to educate guests about wine and help them decide which wine is the perfect pairing for their meal.
