Vintage Cellar Hands


Company: Pernod Ricard Winemakers
Location: Marlborough
Type: Fixed Term
Category: Harvest / Vintage

Vintage Opportunities – Be a part of it! 

We represent a rich portfolio of brands that makes us intensely proud and reflects our #1 position in New Zealand - a position achieved through hard work and a great culture. It is now more than 30 years since we introduced the world to the first Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc – today, our Marlborough wines are still making history. At Pernod Ricard Winemakers, New Zealand, we maintain an exceptional focus on premium products as well as results. We are New Zealand’s premier Wines and Spirits Company leading the way in everything we do. 

We are gearing up for another fantastic vintage and would like to extend a warm welcome to you to join the Pernod Ricard New Zealand Marlborough & Hawke’s Bay Winery team in early 2018. 

We are looking for you to join our team for Vintage 2018! 

Cellar Hands

Ideally, you will have previous experience; one or two prior vintages under your belt would be great. You will have knowledge of automated winery equipment, and a fairly good level of fitness (and no fear of heights!). These, coupled with a good understanding of winemaking processes and vintage operations, or a demonstrated willingness to learn; and an interest in winemaking means you could be just the person we are looking for. 

All of our vintage opportunities are fixed term. Typically, our vintage period runs from mid-March to mid-May; however, the duration of employment may vary due to vintage/weather conditions.

We run two shifts for the largest part of vintage, one being a morning and one being a night shift; both running 12 hour periods.  

We are passionate about making great wine.

Our warm and friendly team are ready to show you why, and to welcome you on-board!

Previous winery experience is preferred but not required.

We are looking for individuals who are able to work long hours and who are prepared to complete a pre-employment drug test. If this is you then Pernod Ricard Winemakers would love to hear from you. 

What we offer:

  • Good pay & lots of hours!
  • An opportunity to work at the largest, award winning winery in New Zealand (Marlborough Winery).
  • Great leadership from our on-site managers and permanent team members.
  • A strong induction, excellent training and a great opportunity to learn.

  • Jobseekers should be aware that the start and finish dates of harvest work employment may change from those suggested by wineries at the time of your job offer. Vintage dates can not accurately be predicted.

    It is therefore important that you understand that depending on your employment arrangements with the employer there may be a period of time where you have no work or less work than you were expecting, and should have sufficient financial arrangements in place should this occur. Your actual start and finish dates may vary - if you have queries around this, check with your winery employer before booking airline tickets etc.
