Full Time

  Cooper's Hawk Vineyards Estate Winery (http://www.coopershawkvineyards.com)

  Harrow, Ontario, Essex County, Ontario

 

Cooper’s Hawk Vineyards is an estate winery located in the rapidly growing wine region of Lake Erie North Shore. We are 8 years old and are expanding in all areas of our business including the production and sale of wine. Our business is experiencing strong growth due to our exceptional wines and customer centric team of staff. We are focused on making high quality, market friendly wines. Our Vineyards are planted in a mixture of red and white vinifera varieties. Our Farming, wine production and lab are all well-equipped.

 

We are seeking an assistant winemaker to assist and support the winemaker both in the cellar and in the vineyard. You will be integral to the day-to-day operation of the winery and will perform a wide range of tasks – from processing fruit, through fermentation, to finishing and bottling the wine, as well as vineyard work. 

 

As part of the cellar team, you will work closely with our Wine Maker in and around the winery, including bottling, cleaning and sanitizing and various tasks in the vineyard. 

 

The majority of your work will include all sorts of manual labour – filling barrels, driving fork-lifts, pumping over, racking, transferring juice or wine from one tank to another, and cleaning tanks, barrels, cellar floors and picking bins, pruning, hand picking and other vineyard work.

 

The ideal candidate will have a good level of fitness and, most importantly, a demonstrable interest in what you’re going to be doing. You need to be willing and hardworking and not afraid to get dirty or wet – both guaranteed several times daily. 

 

Job Requirements: 

 

  • Strong commitment to quality with attention to detail.

  • Candidate must be hands-on, dependable, and self-starting.

  • Good problem solving skills

  • Knowledge of safe cellar practices, including safe handling of chemicals.

  • Knowledge of winery cellar operating procedures.
