Job Description
Woodlands vineyard was established in 1973 by David & Heather Watson on Caves Road in Wilyabrup and was one of the first five vineyards to be planted in the Margaret River Wine Region. David and Heather aimed to create wines to emulate the great vineyards of Bordeaux.

Today Woodlands is run by son's Stuart & Andrew with a small team producing (Certified Organic) Wines of exceptional quality and attention to detail across the range.

We are looking for a Vintage Cellar Hand for this coming Harvest.

As we are a small team your responsibilities will include but won't be limited to all aspects of vintage work;

• Fruit sampling
• Fruit Processing
• Ferment Analysis
• Cleaning
• Pumpovers
• Pressing
• Barrel Work
• Racking & Topping
• More Cleaning

In short, you'll be exposed to every aspect of vintage life in a tight team of wine enthusiasts.

Vintage will be from mid-Feburary to mid-late May, depending on the season, and hours will vary but at the peak of vintage will be up to 6 days a week, 10-12 hrs a day. Previous experience is preferred.

Job Requirements
Preferably multiple vintages experience in similar wineries, however, attitude and work ethic is key though. A valid forklift licence would also be highly regarded.

COVID-19 Restrictions
Due to the current closure of the Western Australian border, at this stage applications will only be accepted from Australian residents, or international applicants who are currently in Western Australia, and who have a valid VISA allowing work until at least May 2021. We are hoping that borders to Western Australia will be open to interstate/international travel prior to the 2021 vintage, but at this stage we will only review applications from those who are currently located in Western Australia.
