Job Description
Established in 1996, Lone Star Creek is a family-owned vineyard estate and wine business, located in the Upper Yarra Valley and specialising in the supply of premium wine grapes to renowned, regional wine producers.

The LSC philosophy is rooted in regard for quality, efficiency and sustainability.

Commencing in mid-2022, this is a great role for an experienced vineyard or farm operator, offering oversight and management of a 22-hectare vineyard, within a 56 hectare farm. The vineyard is planted to regional specialties Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Shiraz and Sauvignon Blanc.

Reporting to the owners and with the support of an external viticulturalist, this is a hands-on, operational role. You will be required to plan and manage all day-to-day farm and vineyard activities, in addition to managing staff, contract labour, maintenance schedules, operational cost-efficiencies and compliance responsibilities. Of necessity you will also have a day to day on-tools load throughout the year.


This is a permanent, full-time position with an attractive and flexible remuneration package (and a contribution to relocation expenses) available for the right candidate.


Job Requirements
Formal qualifications in viticulture and/or agriculture would be an advantage, but several years of demonstrable, practical farming experience are critical. Computer literacy is also highly desirable. Experience working with budget accountability would also be useful, though not essential. Support for appropriate education and study would be considered.

You will be a positive and problem-solving team player, with great attention to detail. You will be a self-starter who is comfortable working alone and who understands the seasonal fluctuations in an agricultural work-load. You will have a management philosophy congruent with the owners and a commitment to building the vineyard’s quality and service reputation.
