Winemaker for Boutique English Producer (Wine Jobs: Vineyards & Cellars )

Full Time

  Nutbourne Vineyards (

  West Sussex, England

Nutbourne is a long-established family owned boutique wine producer situated near Pulborough in West Sussex, producing a range of still and sparkling wines.  We have 8 hectares of vines in production including both classic champagne and an interesting range of Germanic Riesling style varietals.  The Cellar, Winery and cellar door are all on site. Our wines have achieved considerable success in both National and International competitions.

After many years of great work at Nutbourne our principle winemaker will be stepping down by the end of this year and we are looking for a fulltime person to replace him. It is a fully hands on role working with the family in both the winery and the vineyard. The family is directly involved in all aspects of the operation, but the winemaker will take responsibility for decisions within the winery.

The successful applicant will need to be a qualified and talented winemaker with relevant experience at a senior level.  More importantly we are looking for enthusiasm and passion to make great wines. England is a challenging climate in which to grow grapes, but we have consistently proved it is possible to achieve outstanding results.

Nutbourne is part of an integrated family business which includes livestock farming and a group of London restaurants which are of course outlets for our wines.

Salary will depend on experience but will be between 30k and 35k per annum. We cannot offer accommodation but would assist with finding something temporary if the successful applicant needs to relocate
