If you love being outdoors and working hard, then you might be interested in landing a job at a vineyard. It's tough work and largely unsung, but some folks love being tied to the Earth and getting their hands dirty. In the United States, many vineyard workers are immigrants who are glad to have the work, but you'll also find plenty of young Americans out in the fields who want to learn the business from the bottom up. If you're interested in becoming a vintner one day but don't want to go to college to do it, starting out in the vineyard is an option you may want to consider.
