At the same time, she will be rent-free and live in an exclusive winery in Sonoma County, California!
According to reports, the 28-year-old was announced as one of two national champions in the Murphy Good Winery “Real Good Work” campaign. Grelio.
In addition to a monthly salary of US$10,000 and a year’s free rent, Lindsay will also receive 30 boxes of Murphy-Goode wines to take home as compensation for the time spent in the winery.
All Lindsay has to do is learn about the world of e-commerce and work with the team to increase visibility and build demand for the winery. She must also follow the winemaker Dave Ready Jr. and the winery team during the harvest, and assist in the operation of the winery.

According to the winery, in the end, Perry defeated all 15 other applicants and was selected for his creativity, sense of humor, motivation and passion for wine.

I have the opportunity to follow Dave and learn winemaking and professional growth through this year’s exploration.

Lindsay will win with another contest winner, 28-year-old Veronica Hebbard, an engineer from Orlando, Florida.
