The Fearrington House is seeking a sommelier. Recently awarded The Best Hotel Wine List in the World for 2020 by the World of Fine Wines Magazine and a Best of Award of Excellence distinction with Wine Spectator since 2004, we are looking for a sommelier with a passion for wine, beer and spirits.
This position is NOT for a high-level candidate, but there is certainly room to grow. Being part of the FHR is great training wheels for Level 1 or 2 sommeliers starting in their careers. We combine fine-dining service with southern hospitality, devoid of ostentation and pretense. Emphasis on the “southern” part of the statement– we are not located in a bustling city; we revel in the slower, relaxing pace in this part of the world. We cultivate and nurture our people slowly and carefully.
If you’re passionate about wine, a self-starter, and are eager to learn – with a great attitude to boot? We’d love to talk to you. This company cares about its people, not just professionally but personally, and if this is important to you, then please send in your cover letter and resume with the subject line of Fearrington House Restaurant Employment.
