Job Description
The Vandenberg brand pays tribute to the amazing four-generation story of the Vandenberg family – from surviving a ship-wreck off the Limestone Coast in 1857, through 6 brothers and their father miraculously returning with honour from the Second World War, to Richie Vandenberg leading and captaining the Hawthorn football club.

Focused on family, adventure, and relationships, Vandenberg celebrates the generations of stories within every family. We craft wines that we are proud to serve to our friends and our friends of friends. We are passionate about the wine we produce and are seeking a like-minded Winemaker to join our team for Vintage 2020.

Job Requirements
We are looking for a talented, self-motivated, reliable, enthusiastic and hands-on winemaker to work with our winemakers and winery team and assist with the day to day running of the winery during vintage.

Reporting to the Senior Winemaker you will have sound technical and oenological skills along with an understanding of the Vintrace system. Attention to detail is paramount to this role along with the confidence to operate independently and autonomously, communicate well with others and be a team player.

Naturally, it is expected that you will have a relevant degree in wine science or similar qualifications, along with being physically fit and willing to work shift work, including weekends, night shift and overtime as required during vintage. A current drivers licence is required due to the location of the winery.

The successful candidate will be willing to commence in the role late November 2019 for orientation and training purposes. The commencement date will be flexible depending on individual circumstances.

We provide a wonderful landscape for you to work in. This role will be based at our LCW Winery operation in Padthaway, South Australia – part of the beautiful Limestone Coast.

We like to think of ourselves as a humble winery producing great things. Our family owned and operated business, crafts some of The Limestone Coast’s and Australia’s finest cool climate wines.

Finding the balance between the old and new - where timeless craftsmanship meets state of the art processing equipment - the original Stonehaven facility from which we now operate won international acclaim as Winery Of The World at the 2001 San Francisco wine awards. The Winery is surrounded by 36ha of vineyards on famous Padthaway Limestone. When only the best will do, we source fruit from the six flagship regions of The Limestone Coast, providing a wide range of varieties and the best grapes from each terroir.

As the gateway to the internationally acclaimed wine regions of South Australia, we invite you to see what goes on behind our cellar doors, meet our people, and of course sample what we are most proud of: our wine.
