Harvest / Cellar Hands

We are looking for harvest cellar hands to come and be a part of our team for the 2021 vintage.

At Wiston Estate winery we focus on quality, making the best sparkling wines for us and our clients – who fill the spectrum in terms of size. We have won Winery of the Year twice in the past 4 years (2018,2020) at the WineGB awards. We are passionate about the land and get to work with fruit from all over the country, giving us a unique picture of the English harvest.
We are committed to ensuring everyone is happy and engaged in their work and provide a range of jobs so you will learn a lot during your time at Wiston. There is often a potential for longer-term work in the Christmas run-up. In return we’ll expect from you a good attitude and a willingness to get stuck in and work hard.
Daily tasks include:
– Press loading
– Red wine management (pump overs, punch downs etc)
– Barrel work
– Transfers and rackings
– Press/equipment cleaning
– Crate washing
– Inoculations and additions
– Lab analysis of fruit, juice and wine
Our harvest usually lasts 4 – 6 weeks, kicking off in early/mid-September. We pay above the national living wage (from £10.18/hr depending on experience). You must be able to work in the UK, your own accommodation and transport are also essential. In your application please indicate your full-time availability, both start and ends dates.

This is fantastic opportunity to work with great people and make some exceptional wines. We look forward to meeting you.
