Company: Lowe Wines, Mudgee, NSW

Location: Mudgee, NSW

Closing date: 15th October, 2019

Closed

An opportunity to head sales for a leading Australian boutique winery!

Led by owner/winemaker David Lowe, Lowe Wines is renowned internationally as one of Australia’s finest family-owned wine producers. And Mudgee is one of Australia’s most vibrant, tourism-focused inland cities. Lowe Wines has long been the region’s leading winery - the Lowe Cellar Door, its adjacent Zin House restaurant, Pavilion and idyllic setting are by far the region’s most visited and acclaimed destination.

This success has been achieved through a consistent focus on providing every visitor with an outstanding consumer experience: a range of modern, organically and biodynamically produced wines are personally presented in a magnificent setting with outstanding regional food. Excellent facilities and a dynamic events calendar ensure growing visitor numbers.

Following the recent consolidation of family control of this historic wine business, this is an exceptional opportunity for a  sales professional to lead on-site and national sales. See: https://www.lowewine.com.au/

To succeed in this role, you will need to be a proven, success-driven sales professional who enjoys building relationships, and managing people. Cellar Door and DtC sales, and on-site venues are the company’s principal revenue sources. National wholesale is targeted for growth.

Based in Mudgee and reporting to CEO, David Lowe, this is a hands-on, senior management role whose key responsibilities will include:
• Executive and financial management responsibility for the all sales channels. 
• Manage the established Cellar Door sales team of approx. 7 people
• Developing and implementing effective Cellar Door and events-based sales and national growth strategies
• Achieving and managing cellar door sales incl. on-site,  online/wine club/DtC
• Conduct VIP wine tastings and  host events
• Lead, roster, mentor and train cellar door staff
• Developing and maintaining effective communication channels with key opinion makers-locally, and in the Australian wine and tourism media.

You will need:
• At least 5 years’ management experience in  the above sales channels, with responsibility for financial,  budgetary and performance outcomes
• Excellent personal presentation and communication skills
• A strong interest in food and wine
An existing range of wine and tourism media contacts is highly desirable.

Your expertise will make you a key member of the company’s close-knit family management team.

An excellent salary package, including vehicle allowance, a performance-based bonus (and relocation costs, as appropriate) will be offered to the preferred candidate.
