Job Start Date
VINTAGE / HARVEST
Light Domestic Travel
Applications from experienced winemakers are invited for this exciting role in the fast-expanding Heathcote region, two hours north of Melbourne.
Working for a family-owned company with an annual harvest of approximately 800 tonnes from both Heathcote and the Yarra Valley, this position will be full-time cellar and laboratory based over the vintage period.
Working as part of our small team, the role encompasses all aspects of the 2020 vintage.
Experience working with Vintrace is a distinct advantage, but not essential.
The person we are looking for should hold appropriate tertiary qualifications in oenology/wine science or equivalent and have a good number of vintages under their belt. We're basically after somebody who is pretty bright, relaxed, well-adjusted, hard-working and versatile. Other important attributes are common sense, a logical and methodical outlook, total attention to detail, and the organisational ability to ensure all processes are completed as accurately and efficiently as possible. The ability to remain cheerful and calm under vintage conditions/occasional long hours is really important, as is the ability to get on with a wide range of people. Strong written and verbal English skills would be handy and being able to fix stuff (or at the very least not break stuff) would be great too.
Temporary accommodation is available on site, starting date is mid-February,
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.
