Harvest Cellar Hand (Wine Jobs: Vineyards & Cellars )

Full Time

  Stanlake Park Wine Estate (http://www.stanlakepark.com)

  Berkshire, England

We are looking for a hard-working harvest cellar hand to be a part of our team for the 2021 vintage, starting in early-mid September.

Stanlake Park is one of the largest vineyards and wineries in Berkshire, and one of the oldest in England. Our Italian winemaker personally takes care of our 10 acres and produces a wide range of wines, including sparkling white and rosé, still whites, reds and rosé. We also offer contract winemaking services and make wine for other local vineyards. 

We have a very busy Wine Bar, a Wine & Gift Shop and run Tours & Tastings all year round. 

There is a potential for a full-time, permanent position after the harvest for the right candidate.

About the job

You will be carrying out a variety of jobs that will let you learn all the behind-the-scenes of harvest. You will be also welcome to help in our Shop & Wine Bar, should it be of interest.

Directly working with the Winemaker and Assistant Winemaker, the role will include, but it’s not limited to:

- Harvest run-up in the vineyard and winery

- Grape picking

- Press loading, crushing and de-stemming

- Rackings, inoculations, additions

- Equipment cleaning

- Disgorging, labeling, foiling and other cellar operations 

We’d like you to start in early-mid September and expect you to work at least until the end of November, with the possibility to join the team permanently. 

About you

You have a good, friendly attitude and a willingness to work hard; you are not afraid of long hours and poor weather conditions, you are flexible and willing to carry out a variety of tasks.

You are responsible, reliable and proactive, with an eye for detail and the ability to work independently as well as in a team. You need to be fit and able to lift up to 25 kg. 

The ideal candidate has a degree in winemaking or equivalent, as well as experience in previous vintages, although full training will be provided.

Proof of legal right to work in the UK will be required. 

Having your own transportation is not essential - we are only 15 minutes walking on pavements from Twyford train station, which connects to London Paddington in 30-40 minutes. 

We offer

  • A salary per hour in line with the industry standards

  • Free parking onsite

  • Staff discount and meetings

  • Shared accommodation on-site for a competitive price, if needed 

  • Possibility of joining a young, friendly and dynamic team, in a business currently in expansion
