Job Description
This a great opportunity to take the reins on a high quality, high altitude, established vineyard in Whitlands, North East Victoria. Whitlands is located 35 minutes drive from Mansfield, and 45 minutes drive from Wangaratta and Benalla. The vineyard is family owned, with most of the 35 ~ acres of fruit being sold to our contracted buyers as sparkling base. A small portion is often set aside for our own label Eminence and other small scale producers.

This job is autonomous and inherently flexible. Choose how and when you work. We estimate the job is up to 30 hours per week on average, depending on the time of year.

We offer a very competitive salary that takes into account the travelling distance, in addition performance based bonuses.
Job Requirements
We're seeking a reliable, diligent and enthusiastic viticulturist who is competent across all aspects of cool climate viticulture. Tertiary qualifications are not required but previous experience is necessary. This would be a great opportunity for someone looking for experience across all aspects of vineyard management. You must be self motivated, be content to work alone, be able to operate all machinery, organise staff, communicate with buyers, keep detailed records and have a detailed understanding of OH&S requirements.

Our last two managers have worked for 9 and 10 years respectively. We take immense pride in our vineyard and seek to produce the highest quality fruit. As a family owned business we're seeking someone who has a small-business sensibility while bringing new ideas and energy.

To discuss the details of this role, call David Burder at Whitlands Engineering - 03 57297 577

Applicants must have Australian citizenship/residency or a valid existing Australian work visa.

Please forward a copy of your CV and cover letter via email using the 'APPLY FOR JOB’ link above.
