Estate Greeter  

About the Organization Created in 1978 by Baron Philippe de Rothschild and Robert Mondavi, Opus One remains committed to realizing our founders' dream of bringing to life one unique wine that expresses the seamlessly blended personality and character of each family. With a great sense of pride in our work to realize this dream, the people of Opus One bring profound dedication and unsurpassed attention to detail in our daily work.

  • Assist guests by answering questions about the winery, vineyards, and region and make recommendations for other winery and dining options.
  • Keep the front desk clean and organized and maintain all entryways and guest spaces.
  • Assist walk-in guests as well as 'Purchase Only' reservations in a way that does not impact our guests with reservations while providing exceptional customer service.
  • Process wine sales on Commerce 7 efficiently and effectively for 'Purchase Only' appointments.
  • Complete opening and closing checklist of responsibilities on a daily basis, including counting cash drawers, unlocking/locking of all doors, turning music and heaters, uncovering/covering furniture, as well as other duties that may be assigned.
