  3. It is unrealistic articles like this one that give most people the totally false premise that the wine business is all glamour. Most of the real jobs are underpaid, long hours, and dirty. I wonder if the author has ever actually picked grapes, worked in a wine shop or restaurant or experienced the reality of winemaking. These may be the 10 best jobs in wine but they are also the 10 most scarce. Unless you have lots of $$$$$.

      I completely agree with you!! Clearly none of them have ever picked wine grapes. It’s back breaking work and in over 100 degrees. This is completely false.

    They left out two from this list. The wine consumer / drinker is #1 because there is so much great wine being produced today, and if you know where to look, it is easy to find great deals. #2 would be the winery owner who just sold their vineyard for a ridiculous amount of money, and is laughing all the way to the bank.
