Vintage Cellar Hand – Position Filled5 December 2016 – posted in: Job, Winery

Cupitt Vineyard

In mid-late February we will begin our annual harvest and are now recruiting skilled and passionate Cellar Hands to join our team. We are looking for honest, hardworking, common sensed people with a positive attitude.

The Role
During some points of the harvest period, you may be required work shifts up to 12 hours in length and up to 6 days per week. You will receive a competitive rate, regular breaks, training and a daily meal. You will perform diverse responsibilities including:

  • Grape receival, processing and pressing
  • Racking and tank transfers
  • Filtration
  • Red and white fermentation management
  • Barrel management
  • Analysis (ph, sugar, sulfur, TA)
  • Bottling and many more tasks

Previous forklift, confined space and health & safety training is desirable.

You’ll be part of a small team of hard working individuals and required to put in quality work and to be self-motivated and have solid initiative to think through tasks and problem solve by yourself at times, while most times you’ll be working directly with the winemaker.

Expected work period (Timing of vintage dependent)

  • 3 day induction period mid-late February
  • Vintage approx. first week of March – Early/Mid-April
  • Applicants should be physically fit and be prepared to work long hours and shifts

If successful you’ll be working at a small family owned and operated winery which produces Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Arneis, Pinot Noir, Shiraz, Cabernet, Barbera, Merlot and Nebbiolo. Due to the high intake of fruit there will be a 3-4 week period where operations will be very busy and a need to produce high quality work is extremely important.

Previous experience or an active/keen interest in the wine industry would be highly beneficial.

Only the best candidates will be considered for this role. This won’t be for you if you don’t fit into the description above.

Thanks in advance for your application if you choose to do so!
