Careers

Our winery family is a close-knit team with the mission to provide the ultimate County wine experience. With legendary winemaker Derek Barnett, our wines are a favorite of visitors, locals and critiques alike.

Karlo Estates is one of Trip Advisor’s most recommended destination in  and the only to be named twice on the Top Ten Cutting Edge Wines in the World list. We are the world’s first plant based certified winery.

With photo op settings, guests can stroll the vineyards with a glass of wine in hand to check out our signature dry stone bridge.

Getting your photo taken on our bridge was named the number one thing to do in Prince Edward County by Ottawa Magazine.

Guests can book private group tastings in our loft gallery or enjoy nibblers on our covered patio. We offer County hospitality in an 1805 barn for guests to sample a large, ever changing portfolio of unique premium wines along with food pairings.

Our staff enjoys working both indoors and out. Scripts, job shadowing and mentor training turn staff who are wine curious into a wine expert in weeks.

We are currently seeking part time wine stewards to join us in pairing unparalleled service with exceptional wines.
