Rijk's Cellar is a boutique winery, situated in the picturesque Tulbagh valley in the Western Cape of South Africa. We are dedicated to producing award-winning Chenin Blanc and Pinotage wines. Elegance, finesse, complexity and concentration of fruit are the hallmarks of our wines. We produce fine food wines to satisfy the sophisticated palate of wine enthusiasts from around the world.

We are in need of an intern who is passionate about wine and who wants to learn about wine making, especially about Pinotage and Chenin blanc. Obviously experience will count in your favour (and ours), but for us it's more about dedication.
We will need you from around the 13th of January until the 20th of March 2020. You will need to take part in the following actions: Grape sampling, grape juice analysis, fermenting juice sugar analysis, punch downs, pump overs, press filling of barrels, all kind of rackings, barrel cleaning, yeast rehydration and additions, general winemaking actions

We harvest all our grapes at night by hand, so you must be prepared for this. Our total production varies between 200 and 250 tons.
You will have accommodation free of charge.

Let me know if you have any further queries. E-mail me direct at pierre@rijks.co.za

Kind regards,

The Winemaking team,
