Best known for Shiraz and Riesling, the vineyard has a total of 12 varieties including Arneis, Sangiovese and Mourvèdre.

Reporting to the Chief Winemaker and working closely with the GM and CEO, this hands-on vineyard management role is responsible for all vineyard operations. From financial, safety and environmental reporting to soil health, maintenance planning and occasional promotional support, the role is diverse and challenging.

This is a role that demands a high level of professionalism and engagement with the company’s vision for wine quality, value, safety and environmental responsibility.

An attractive remuneration package, commensurate with experience, is available to the successful candidate.
