This Company Is Looking To Hire Christmas Wine Tasters


For most people, Christmas is a particularly boozy time of the year, from mulled wine at shopping markets to prosecco at staff parties… but what if you got paid just for getting a bit tipsy?



House of Townend is on the hunt for a Christmas Wine Taster, and who knows? You might just be the perfect candidate!

All you have to do is to try some of the best red wine out there and then report on the sensory experience. You’ll have to track the aromas and rate the taste, texture, and length of the drink before suggesting key areas for improvement to the Innovation team.



The job entails a fixed-term contract for one month and will work directly with the innovation and customer service team for red wine, providing feedback on up to six different bottles.

However, they did specify that this role ‘requires perseverance, dedication, and a refined palate’, and a person with a genuine passion for the festive season committed to making their Christmas Day lunch perfect with the best wine, and well-versed in the language and art of tasting.



Unfortunately, only UK-based over 18-year-olds may apply and the deadline is December 15. The lucky candidate will then be chosen at random on December 16, and if you’d like to try your luck, you can apply here!

House of Townend hilariously added, ‘Please note, red wine is high in antioxidants, and drinking moderate amounts has been shown to be good for health.’.
