July 2017 Data  -  Released on August 15, 2017
 
Winery Jobs Index Holds Steady with 1% Growth
Winery hiring remained steady in July 2017, Winejobs.com reported, with the Winery Jobs Index rising 1% versus July 2016 to 328. Despite healthy demand for direct-to-consumer and vineyard positions (up 19% and 17%, respectively) as well as general administration (up 10%), a sharp drop in demand for finance positions (down 33%) and sales and marketing (down 27%) limited index growth.
