UK: Wine Guides

vinopolis-wine

Individuals who join the Vinopolis team working as Wine Guides will need to have experience in a customer service based role and enjoy working with the public. They will enjoy giving presentations and interacting with people in general and have the ability to up-sell extra experiences within the tour. Applicants will have a keen interest in and learning about wine. The WSET qualification is very desirable.

The role involves talking to guests about wine, pouring wine and answering any questions on the wines available at the tasting tables. Guides also are trained to give presentations on the professional tasting method, guided tours and also private wine tastings which involve talking guests through a choice of 6 wines. Apart from tasting tables, we also have rum, whiskey and Bombay Sapphire bars, along with Absinthe and fine wine tables, which Guides are trained on as part of their ongoing professional development.

Training is given in all our experiences and there are opportunities to taste wines from all round the world and improve your wine knowledge. Vinopolis runs WSET (Wine & Spirit Education Trust) courses in house which Guides are encouraged to attend. Increases in salary are triggered once guides are fully trained in all the experiences and have WSET intermediate and advanced qualifications. There are also opportunities for Guides to be involved in Vinopolis’ spectacular events helping to deliver a unique experience.
