Seven Springs Vineyards in the Hemel en Aarde Valley is looking for a hard-working and reliable person to help with the processing of grapes in our cellar, for the duration of the 2019 harvest. The person taken on will be required to execute the following tasks (including though not limited to);

- Reception of the grapes.
- Sorting Table - bunch selection.
- Pump overs.
- Temperature control.
- Sugar control.
- Fermentation observation.
- Barrel work.
- General cleaning of cellar equipment..
- Any wine-making tasks required during the course of the harvest.

We will give preference to someone with prior experience but are willing to work with someone with no experience, providing they are willing to work hard and learn on the job. The ideal candidate will have their own transport and accommodation.
Pay will be determined by previous experience but will be above the industry average. Would ideally suit someone studying wine-making or someone who has a passion for the industry and wishes to learn more.
Seven Springs is a small property (8.5 Ha of vines / +/-60 Tons in total), so we may be flexible with working hours, though harvesting days are essential and the occasional weekend shift will be expected. 
The person employed for the harvest will have direct access to all members of our small team, from the casual cellar workers through to the wine-maker. Lunch will be provided. All interested candidates may contact Gus Dale on 028 316 4994. Position available from the beginning of February to end of March, 2019.
