Yes, you read that right! This Sonoma winery just posted an incredible job listing for those looking to get into the wine industry, or as they call it, “A Really Goode Job.” They’re offering a $10,000 a month salary and free rent for a year in Healdsburg, where you can jumpstart your career in winemaking under the leadership of Murphy-Goode winemaker Dave Ready Jr.

• Takes life one sip at a time
• Willing to have your employer pay your rent in Sonoma County specifically in the idyllic town of Healdsburg
