Jobs

There's no business like the wine business...

and this is the space to watch if you'd like to be a part of a lively, independent wine company

based in Cork but with a national reputation for great wines and great service. Any vacancies we have (what's seldom is wonderful) are posted here first.

From time to time we welcome international students on placement from wine-related degree courses and so on. If you don't have access to one of those schemes, but have appropriate skills and would like to get some experience of the Irish wine trade in a small, busy company as an 'intern' – please do get in touch.
