Murphy-Goode Winery in Sonoma County has announced the winners of its recurring “A Really Good Job” campaign, a national effort to hire two temporary workers.
They will begin their âdream job journeysâ at Murphy-Goode on September 1, following winemaker Dave Ready Jr. and then taking separate roles aligned with their respective interests and expertise. During the one-year position, each will receive a salary of $ 10,000 per month, live rent-free in Healdsburg, and receive Murphy-Goode wine, according to the company.
Lindsay Perry grew up in Yardley, PA, but currently lives in Austin, Texas where she works in sports marketing. Perry received scholarships to complete his WSET Level I and II wine certifications through Wine Unify and the Roots Fund last year and this year, respectively.
Veronica Hebbard, from Montgomery, New York, will travel to Sonoma via Orlando, Florida. She is currently working as an engineer in the themed entertainment industry.
The winery said it received more than 7,000 applications from around the world. Last month, the winery selected the top 17 finalists and welcomed them to Healdsburg for in-person talks and an exploration of the wine region.
Murphy-Goode was founded in Sonoma County in 1985 by Tim Murphy, Dale Goode, and Dave Ready Sr.
