Bacchus & Venus is a two-floor tasting room in beautiful downtown Sausalito, featuring boutique California wines for more than 16 years. Our tasting menu of four flights changes every few days, selected from about 175 wines on our shelves at any given time. You will taste a lot of wine, learn and grow while working in a place that is the envy of our guests! ("Can I work here?" "Do you actually live here?" "Wait, you taste wine for a living?")
We seek a team player who is energetic, outgoing and motivated to pour, educate, and sell wine, art and gifts. Create marketing outreach to existing and new clients. This includes both individual and corporate clients in person, but also via phone, email, and social media. Be part of our Management team selecting wines, managing Wine Club, arranging and merchandising store and art gallery, managing inventory, invoices, scheduling, social media and public relations. You'll never be bored, and once you learn the ropes, this is a self-starter, entrepreneurial position.
We're seeking an full-time sales and hospitality manager, with some weekends required and a flexible schedule, though knowledgeable part-time candidates considered. While we prefer candidates wine experience, we will provide education and training to candidates with advanced degrees, excellent writing and computer skills, an outgoing personality and go-getter attitude.
