The Awatere River Wine Company is based in the Awatere Valley in Marlborough and is focused on making high quality varietal wines. We are a young company, and growing fast. 

We are looking for a conscientious, hardworking Cellar Hand/Vineyard Assistant to join our small team. 

We are seeking an enthusiastic and motivated person, preferably with teritary training in Wine or Viticulture, and some hands-on industry experience.

winejobsonline has made a big difference to accessing vacancies in the wine industry. I put up the position vacancies on our student winery noticeboard and the students can look at just one source to find a job, rather than trawling through the newspaper or the internet. On our trip north, we finished up a long day of concentrating on wines and vineyards with a beer tasting at Hallertau, sponsored by winejobsonline. It was a great opportunity for the students to unwind and meet Paddy and Heather, taste some great beer and have some very good food. The staff and students really appreciated it!
