Job Description
Job Objective
McLaren Vintners is 5,000T premium custom crush facility located in McLaren Vale, processing fruit predominately from McLaren Vale and Adelaide Hills. We have a high profile client list who have collectively achieved over 100 trophies in the last 10 years.

A rare and exciting opportunity exists to join our Winemaking team, working closely with fellow Winemakers, Winery Operations Manager, Cellar team and CFO. This is a position requiring several years’ winemaking experience. Previous experience at a custom crush facility would be an advantage but not essential. Position requires sound communication skills as a customer liaison, an ability to manage others and competency in the production of both warm and cool climate winemaking.

Applicants will possess effective leadership skills, a high degree of self-motivation, resourcefulness and initiative. The successful applicant will thrive working in a dynamic and busy environment and display excellent planning and logistical skills.
