Wine internship in Hungary

Posted on February 13, 2024 by Sonoma Valley Sun

The Sonoma-Tokaj Sister Cities Committee is offering a unique work, learning and cultural experience this Fall for someone from the Sonoma area working the wine harvest in the famous wine town of Tokaj, Hungary. 

Sonoma and the world-class wine region of Tokaj have been Sister Cities since 2012, and as part of this cultural exchange, wine interns from Sonoma are sent to work the crush in Tokaj. The Sonoma-Tokaj Sister Cities Committee will provide $2,000 toward airfare or other expenses, and Tokaj-Hétszőlő Winery will provide free room and a choice of free board or equivalent in payment, and a small stipend for leading English speaking tours, should they be requested. 

 Tokaj-Hétszőlő Wine Estate is the premier winery in world-famous Tokaj; it is situated in the heart of Tokaj-Hegyalja, on the southern slopes of Mount Tokaj. Its vineyards were first planted in 1502.

The chosen candidate will work at Tokaj-Hétszőlő Vineyards with Gergely Makai, General Manager and Master Winemaker, who speaks English and will provide instruction and share knowledge of local wine making processes.

Sister City members in Tokaj will provide cultural programs during the weekend or non-working hours.

Previous wine interns from Sonoma have reported extraordinary experiences that create a life-long attachment to this beautiful and fascinating wine culture.
