Harvest Season (grape picking)

Some information about grape picking for the benefit of people who may not have done this type of job before.

Please note as you read through the following notes that although the picking of grapes is on piece rate, it is NOT in our interest to have staff who earn significantly below the hourly pay comparison; therefore, we set our rates to a fair and equitable level to give our team members opportunities to earn above hourly pay.

Our piece rates per vine are based on historical earning s of previous years and through walkthrough observations before the start of pruning season.

We are obligated to quote the grape picking for an EXPERIENCED PICKER, but we are happy to employ inexperienced picking staff and we can teach everything there is to know about picking different grapes, but the prospective team member should allow time to become proficient at the skill as it is an art form that takes time and patience to learn
