This company will pay you £250 to taste test their wine

Vino fans listen up: if you fancy sipping on some glorious organic wine this summer, and not just for free but actually be paid for the pleasure of doing so, have we got the dream job for you.

Vintage Roots make organic wine and they want to find one lucky person to taste test 12 of their finest bottles – all you have to do in return is give your honest review of each one. Even better, you’ll be Vintage Roots’ ‘official summer wine taster’, which means they’ll pay you £250 in return for all your hard work.

It’s not a position of full-time employment but it certainly is a fantastic one-off opportunity for anyone who knows a thing or two about (and loves) wine. You don’t need to be a wine connoisseur either, but it would help if you know your Sauvignon from your Merlot.
