Head Sommelier - Le Foote (Wine Jobs: Wine Retail & Sommelier)

Full Time


  Sydney, NSW

Swillhouse is searching for a Head Sommelier to join the opening team for its newest venue, Le Foote, due to open in July.

Located in the historic heart of Sydney, Le Foote is a European inspired wine bar and restaurant, and the newest addition to Swillhouse; owner/operators of Alberto's Lounge, Restaurant Hubert, Frankie's Pizza, The Baxter Inn and Shady Pines Saloon.

Le Foote is modelled on the all-day eating and drinking cultures of Amsterdam, Paris and Rome, particularly their cafe’s, outdoor eateries, and quiet enjoyment of life.

The venue will feature a relaxed wine bar, offering a substantial menu and also an 80-seat courtyard restaurant, which will be centred around a Josper charcoal grill, producing dry aged steaks, beautifully grilled vegetables and some of Australia's finest seafood. 

Our wine focus will be on the icons and classics of Europe, the wider Mediterranean and Australia, while still remaining enthusiastic about talented new winemakers and bottlings of anything that’s truly delicious from around the world.

The Head Sommelier will work closely with Swillhouse's Wine Director to create and manage our list of around 350 wines. Leading a small team of passionate sommeliers, they will also be responsible for training, mentoring and managing all team members at Le Foote.

As part of Swillhouse, we have excellent group buying ability and access to rare allocations, along with long standing relationships with Australia's best importers. 

We are offering a competitive salary and excellent weekly tips along with one of the best employee benefits packages available in the industry. This includes a dedicated mental health program, 50% discount across all our venues for you plus one guest, and frequent training across a wide range of topics beyond hospitality.

This is a rare opportunity to join the Swillhouse management team and ideal for somebody interested in career advancement within an expanding company.
