We are looking for harvest staff to complement our permanent team and help us bring in the 2018 harvest. We are a small team and enjoy producing a range of fantastic cool climate wines.

  • Are energetic, hardworking and keen. 
  • Preferably have some experience in a cellar or laboratory environment.
  • Have an eye for detail.
  • Have a passion for the wine industry.
