How can I volunteer?2018-11-15T13:46:03+00:00

There is a certain romance about the notion of working in a vineyard. Picking grapes, tucking vines, conjuring up images of rolling hills, breathtaking landscapes and stomping on the grapes with your bare feet in a huge wooden barrel. I won’t sugar coat it, tucking vines, grape picking, and bottling wine is hard work, often under a strong summer sun, but the rewards remain bountiful.  You get to meet locals, share in an age-old tradition and hopefully, indulge in the fruits of your labor and the celebrations that go with harvest season.

If you have ever wondered what it’s like to be a winemaker this is a great opportunity to get a sneak peek into their busiest time of year.  During August, September, October & November we will be looking for volunteers at varies times as vineyard needs arise. All of our volunteers will receive $10 of wine credit per hour they work, and lunch will be provided.  If you are interested in being added to our volunteer database list to learn more about these opportunities, please email reservations@potomacpointwinery.com.
