Job Description
Have you ever dreamt of looking after 16 acres of vines, processing 250t of estate and locally grown grapes and making them into a HUGE range of wines? Here at Olive Farm Wines, we take pride in conducting every production stage from grape growing all the way through to bottling. We produce traditional and carbonated sparkling, dry through to sweet whites, all sorts of red wines as well as wonderful fortified wines, not to mention we distil our own spirit.

As a 4 generation family owned winery, you will be brought in as one of the family. Family business succeeds with a “all hands on deck” approach to work, not a 9 to 5 approach. When there is work to be done, we get in and get it done.

We have a wonderfully set up winery including: automated pump over systems, floatation, ozone and steam sanitation, de-alcoholisation capabilities, cross flow filtration, thermostatically temperature controlled tanks, our own bottling line and even our own brand new grape harvester to name a few. Money is spent in our vineyard & winery to make the process as streamlined as possible, with the aim to make the best quality wine we can, in a safe and clean workplace.

We sell our wines through our onsite cellar door sales area, along with our dedicated wine and cheese café next door, The Cheese Barrel. There is a huge emphasis on customer service, which involves all staff having a great understanding of our products. You will be working closely with our Cellar Door and Cheese Barrel managers to bring the different facets of our business into a harmonious workplace and venue for visitors. We also export wines overseas and make wine for some local contract clients.

There is no need to list all of the different jobs you may be required to do, if you have enough experience you know what it takes to look after vines and make wine.
