The coolest wine job ever: Available at Murphy Goode Winery

Formerly a family-owned winery (owned since 2006 by Jackson Family Wines), it's still family-run by Dave Ready, Sr. and Dave Ready Jr. Dave Junior spent some time in his youth following the Grateful Dead, and maybe that prepared him to be Murphy Goode's winemaker, a position he holds today. Maybe. I have a hunch he cooked up this job application idea so it will be fun. Think you got the chops?

Apply here for A Really Goode Job.

It's quite possibly the most inventive, most outrageous PR stunt ever in California's painfully conservative wine history. And you may have heard of it or maybe a blogger friend already applied for it. 

Murphy Goode Winery is looking to fill an actual full-time, six-month position through word-of-mouth and the blogosphere. The deal: $10,000/month, a free house, all the wine you can drink and flexible work hours. In exchange, you do what many people do already for fun: blog, post on Facebook, Twitter, post videos and work around the winery.
