We've recently won some very serious silverware - apologies - GOLDware in the World Championships for our wine; and we are looking for a candidate to come and join our team to support our wine-maker and vineyard manager.

This is an opportunity for a driven and motivated individual to develop their skills across all elements in the wine trade. Your focus will be in both the vineyard and the winery. But here at Mereworth, we take the grape, from field to foam. We want you also to help us grow, make and crucially to help sell our wines; both on tours, and in our thriving bar and shop.

In joining our team, we will teach you how to not only make wine, and manage a vineyard, operate in a winery, and also how to present and sell our wine. We are close to London and we are seeing greater numbers of tourists interested in the experiences we offer. We are looking for someone to share this vision; who enjoys making, talking and drinking our wine.
