Job postings by wineries in January increased 26 percent from January 2013, and were 22 percent higher than January 2012, according to a  report detailing wine job posting trends.

The increase in the winery job index was driven by increases in winemaking, sales and marketing and hospitality jobs.

The winemaking job index increased 50 percent in January 2014  over January 2013, and was 53 percent above January 2012. The hospitality index increased 34 percent in January 2014, and was 45 percent above January 2012.

The sales and marketing index increased 17 percent in January 2014, but was 4 percent below January 2012.

The index provides a way to measure and compare trends in the wine job market. January 2007 is set with a base index of 100. The following months’ indexes reflect percentage changes since that base index, providing a quick way to gauge rises and drops in job postings. Derived from the online wine job board, these changes can be interpreted as industry-wide trends, the news release said.

State and county unemployment numbers for January will be released in early March.
