With focus and hard work, we aim to expand our understanding of the Niagara region through the medium of grape and honey. Our team is growing, and we are looking for a motivated and focussed individual to take on the role of Assistant Winemaker.

As Assistant Winemaker, you will work in partnership with our head winemaker, Ryan Corrigan and will ensure that wine and mead quality is maintained at all stages of transformation.

Your key responsibilities are as follows:

  • Day to day cellar and winery management, including updating cellar and vineyard records; throughout the growing season.

  • Participating in wine tasting to evaluate and make recommendations to improve wine quality.

Things to consider:

  • Position-related education and experience are a major asset, but not a requirement.
  • A Passion for wine and a commitment to excellence are great, but a strong work ethic is essential. 
  • Abilities to both think quickly and make educated decisions are important, but not being afraid to ask questions and forever thinking critically are more important.
  • Confidence in delegating tasks to staff with a wide range of experience is an asset.
  • Should have very strong organizational and planning skills, as the head winemaker can be a touch scatterbrained at times. 
  • Ability to multitask and manage changing priorities is a must because, well, see above.
  • Must be able to work indoors, outdoors, long hours, holidays and weekends during harvest, because hey, that’s showbiz baby.
