Description

Head of Wine – St Austell Brewery (Field Based)

We have an exciting opportunity to join the St. Austell Family Group as Head of Wine. 

This role will be the face of wine at St Austell Brewery, developing our portfolio so we are the envy of the drinks trade. They will inspire and share their extensive wine knowledge with both customers and employees, engaging at all levels to ensure we’re a supplier of choice.  

St Austell Family Group is a family-owned business with world class brewing and pubs at its heart. We began life in Cornwall over 170 years ago and have built a £200m business with internationally recognised beer brands in Tribute and Proper Job.

Our ambition is growth, building a long-term progressive and profitable business, fit for future generations.

Our venues are exciting places to be. Dynamic, high-volume, and fast-paced, they are go-to destinations for high quality, locally sourced food and drink. Being set in desirable coastal and rural locations means they each experience significant seasonal demand over the summer.
