We have a great new opportunity in the Wiston Estate Winery Team for a Production Team Leader. Based in the heart of West Sussex, Wiston Estate is one of the UK’s most awarded sparkling wine producers and is entering into an exciting new phase in its story with the opening of Chalk Restaurant and a brand new tasting room and refurbished winery. This role will be focused in the winery but will link into the estate’s wider principles and purpose – to foster a rural meeting place where people, nature and enterprises coexist and flourish. This creates a unique opportunity for a candidate who is passionate about wine and specifically English wine, but will also enjoy working alongside the rest of the estate, which covers a great diversity of projects, from regenerative farming, hospitality, forestry, countryside stewardship, land management and more. The estate believes strongly in investing in people, maximising our resources, championing fresh thinking and extending a generous welcome to all who come to the estate.

-         Attention to detail to ensure wine and packaging quality

-         Ability to lead and work within a team

-         Ability to teach new team members sparkling wine production

-         Drive to improve upon production targets and efficiency

-         Strong involvement with trialling new wines for dosage and release so an interest in wine is desirable but not essential

-         Full rights to work in the UK

-         Salary based upon experience
