Description

Feathertop Wines is a small, family-owned winery in Victoria’s stunning Alpine Valleys. Established in 1989, we specialise in growing and making high quality, small-batch cool-climate wines with a focus on a Private Member based sales model. Our 50 acre vineyard is planted to 22 different varieties, both traditional and emerging.

An exciting opportunity exists for a passionate, highly motivated Assistant Winemaker to join our small, dynamic team on a fulltime basis. The role will be hands-on and diverse, will allow for strong influence on wine style and winery operations and provide scope for career and personal development.

  • Previous winemaking or vintage experience in a small-medium size winery.
  • Ability to work independently and/or within a small team.
  • A sound understanding of cool-climate wine styles.
  • Experience in wine laboratory procedures.
  • Passion for the industry, a good sense of humour and an awesome taste in music.

The remuneration package is competitive, commensurate with the role and experience of the candidate.
