Murphy-Goode Winery will pay you $10,000 a month to drink, Twitter and Facebook


The grape geeks at Murphy Goode Winery are offering one fellow wine nerd "A Really Goode Job." Specifically, the winery is searching for a "Wine Country Lifestyle Correspondent who will report on the cool lifestyle of Sonoma County Wine Country, and, of course, tell people what you're learning about winemaking," all while spending six months of your life juiced up and sleeping off the hangovers in a "beautiful home in picturesque Healdsburg," for which you'll be paid a handsome sum of $10K a month. You read that right: $10K a month to get shit-faced. And Twitter. And maybe use Facebook a few times a day.

That's the caveat with this whole stunt: You've got to "file reports on your experiences, via weekly blogs, photo diaries, Twitter, Facebook, video updates and ongoing media interviews."  And in order to apply for the job, you've got to upload a 60-second video, which several hopefuls from the metro area have already done, including fast-talking viking Rick Bakas, who  lives in Boulder, and self-described social media ninja Adam Dyer, from Denver. (Watch their videos after the jump).

You have until June 19 to upload your video, as well as submit a written application. If you're the Chosen One, let me know and I'll give you my address...for all those cases you plan to send my way.
