Each year, Cape Mentelle builds a team of exceptionally skilled Cellar Hands and Vineyard Hands from various backgrounds to bring their dedication and knowledge to support us with the year’s harvest. We provide comprehensive training, a social & collaborative work structure and broad work tasks to allow you immerse yourself and build an intimate understanding of winery/vineyard process. You will have direct access to our winemakers and viticulturists and the ability to build your professional networks with staff from around the world.
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.
