Phantom Creek Estates Announces Open Winemaker Position

Phantom Creek Estates, a premier wine destination in the Okanagan Valley, announces winemaker Francis Hutt is returning to his native New Zealand for personal reasons.

During his two years of impactful contributions, Hutt executed the 2019 vintage at the new winery facility and obtained organic certification for the winery and its vineyards in 2020. “As a family-owned business, we respect the importance of being close to family members, especially given the current times,” said Santiago Cilley, CEO of Phantom Creek Estates. “We appreciate Francis’ many contributions and he will be missed by all of us here. Due to his departure, we will begin the immediate search for his replacement.”

This is a rare and unique opportunity to join an international winemaking team and work in the stunning South Okanagan in British Columbia. Qualified candidates are encouraged to visit the winery’s website for more details.
