2018 Vintage Positions Marlborough

Company: The Awatere River Wine Company
Location: Marlborough
Type: Fixed Term
Category: Harvest / Vintage

We are looking for passionate, hardworking Cellar Hands to join our small team for the 2018 vintage.

We are seeking enthusiastic and motivated people with industry experience.  Applicants will require sound attention to detail, strong interpersonal and team skills, a self-starting attitude with the energy, motivation and stamina required to be effective in a busy environment. 

Duties vary, but include fruit receival, running presses, lees filtration, tank floats and rackings, barrel work, plunging and pumping over red ferments, juice and wine additions, loading/receiving tankers, and cleaning. We value candidates with hands-on experience in these areas. Because we are a small organisation, Cellar Hands will be expected to do a variety of different jobs and help each other out. You won't be stuck on one job or machine for the whole harvest!

We provide competitive pay rates, and a meal each day during the peak of harvest. We will arrange accommodation and subsidise rent. There will be two shifts and plenty of hours to work. 

If you are interested in joining our harvest team for the 2018 vintage, please apply using the button below.

Overseas applicants must be able to obtain an appropriate visa allowing them to work legally in New Zealand.

    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.
