Looking for a position as Assistant/ Junior Winemaker

Saturday, 11 September, 2021

I am currently working as an Assistant Winemaker at a highly regarded premium wine estate in Stellenbosch. My contract will be ending soon and I am therefor looking for work opportunities, preferable in or around Stellenbosch. 
Working directly under the Winemaker alongside a Cellar Manager, I manage a floor with five permanent cellar staff, overseeing grape intake, additions, inoculations, pump overs, wine prep for bottling, overseeing bottling runs etc., placing orders, stock take, writing work orders, WineMS, assisting with IPW, sawis stock take and other admin form part of my daily duties.  I assure that tasks are completed in order of priority by delegating according to the floors abilities where needed.

Cellar related working experience (small to medium size cellars):
4 local harvests - 2 working as Assistant Winemaker (current position)
1 International harvest

I have learned how to work with diverse groups of people and have seen multiple management styles.  I believe in working hard, being honest, committing to everything I start, staying true to myself and always being willing to learn.

My salary expectation would be greatly influenced by the remuneration package on offer. I would appreciate the opportunity to meet and have further discussions in person.
