Based at the winery, and reporting to the Technical Director, the new position of Communications Winemaker at Cape Mentelle is a rare career opportunity for a qualified winemaker to combine specific, hands-on winemaking responsibilities with wider domestic and international communication responsibilities and personally representing the company and its wines in the domestic and international markets.

To be considered for this position you will certainly be a qualified Australian winemaker with at least two years’ experience, preferably including some overseas. You will be a proven, confident communicator with excellent written and personal presentation skills. You will impress and inspire as a natural, authoritative leader who is decisive, well-presented and personally at ease representing this luxury wine brand. These attributes will be underpinned by excellent organisation and problem-solving skills. You should have an existing network of domestic, and preferably international, trade and media contacts in Australia’s key wine markets.  A command of one or more languages, in addition to English, would be an advantage.

This role will be one of the key management positions at Cape Mentelle and comes with a high level of autonomy. It will require extensive domestic and international travel.

The successful applicant will be offered an attractive remuneration package, including support with  family relocation if necessary.
