We are looking for a senior manager/operator or couple/team to take full control of the operation and development of our wine tasting & tapas bar on Polkadraai Hill.

The ideal candidate(s) will have a very strong knowledge of South African wine, ideally gained in a sommelier environment, but failing that be able to demonstrate an above-average ability to communicate wine in an informative and unpretentious way combined with a broad understanding of food & beverage and small business management.

If applying as a couple or a team the role of the second applicant will be for the position of chef.

This is a senior-level, self-managed, largely unsupported position where the candidate(s) will be expected to drive the development of the business at their own discretion reporting with weekly reporting to the directors.

Remuneration will be partly commission based with a market-related basic salary as well as the option of equity after twelve months.

Sommelier & Company (Somm & Co.), is a first-of-its-kind collective tasting room at Karibib Wine Craft on Polkadraai Hill. We provide a brand home for eight producer-owned small to medium-sized craft wine brands, all produced on-site at the collective winery, paired with a simple tapas-inspired menu.

Opened in August 2020 the space has become immediately popular for an unpretentious yet very informed wine tasting and dining experience hosted by highly knowledgable staff.

We are currently closed for winter while doing some renovations and scouting for the right talent to take us to the next level.
