How we feel about our volunteers: We think of our volunteers as every bit as much a part of the total experience as winemakers, chefs and guests. You likely have some knowledge of food and wine and enjoy sharing with others the cumulative experience all of us together are able to create.

Tasks: Volunteers will be organized into teams to handle such tasks primarily involved with pouring (staffing pouring stations for wineries who cant pour in person, relieving wineries pouring in person), Load-in and Load-out for wineries; reception and check-in; site maintenance (hydration stations, trash bins); XR Talks coordination and more.

Requirements: (desired, not mandatory) some knowledge of wines, experience with events or in tasting rooms, restaurants, retail wine sales, hospitality.

What’s in it for you: The chance to be part of a truly unique event. During the event itself, all volunteers will work in shifts allowing them ample time to enjoy the event itself. Eye-opener hospitality upon arrival and a private monitored Volunteer Room where there will be munchies throughout the day; a branded apron (which has proven to be very popular) and of course, a few bottles of wine.
