From Service to Secateurs, our agile Hospitality Team
Agility is a word often mentioned in the Vasse Felix team, and there has been no better test of it than of late. With some careful planning, we’re pleased to say all of our permanent staff from the Restaurant, Cellar Door and Estate Tourism teams have been redeployed into an array of meaningful projects across Vasse Felix during COVID-19 shutdowns.
This began with hand harvesting our old-vine Cabernet back in late March. (Ref. Cellar Door Manager Grace Pigram and Head Chef Brendan Pratt pictured above).
We have had Cellar Door staff stepping in as Winery Cellarhands, Restaurant and Events staff learning how to train young vines, and others supporting the Bottling team.
While enjoying these new opportunities, the Hospitality team are regularly heard proclaiming how much they miss hosting our visitors. Thus, we are waiting, with great enthusiasm, to reopen our doors (in line with the appropriate protocols and service adjustments, naturally). We hope, pending the next few weeks in WA, this will happen sometime in mid-to-late June. Watch this space.
Thank you for your continued support of Vasse Felix.
