Description

POSITION DESCRIPTION

Rosily Vineyard is a small, certified organic, family-owned wine business operating from a single site in the heart of the Wilyabrup wine region of Margaret River.

Established in 1994, our 12.20ha vineyard produces 100% of the fruit processed at our well-equipped winery and barrel room, which was constructed in the year 2000.  In the 22 years since our first vintage, Rosily has built up an outstanding reputation with widespread show success and critical acclaim.

We now offer a motivated, creative and ambitious winemaker the chance to share in and build on this success.  With a relatively low quantity of premium quality wines produced each year, the role offers the chance for the successful applicant to develop their skills in multiple aspects of a wine business.

Working with the general manager and viticulturalist, and ultimately reporting to the business owners, this is a hands-on role that will involve full responsibility for all winemaking decisions and tasks, as well as a contribution to vineyard, sales and marketing activities.

The Margaret River region is world renowned for its wine, its natural beauty, and its outstanding lifestyle opportunities.  Rosily Vineyard is located 20mins from Margaret River, 10 minutes from the nearest town of Cowaramup, and 15 minutes from the nearest beach.
